I'm the Chief Technology Officer of AllPeers. Besides handwaving and pontificating, I serve as our principal liaison for all things Mozilla. My responsibilities in our development team relate primarily to our resource management (with heavy use of RDF) and database (mozStorage and SQLite) layers.
System Tray Icon/Notification Service
I've extended some work by Mook and glazou for displaying a system tray icon from Mozilla-based apps. It's still very preliminary but I'm hoping it will evolve into a generalized service for user notifications, with broad multiplatform support.
Logging and Diagnostics
One of our biggest challenges is diagnosing problems, especially at remote user sites. Ideally we would like to find a generalized solution that will work for other Mozilla-based apps and that plays nicely with the future fix for bug 228205. I've written up some thoughts on this topic.
