  • In MV last week, was great to see everyone and the face time was very valuable.
  • Learning the ways of the Metrics
    • I sat down with Daniel E. from Metrics and learned about the tools they use to build ETL jobs and data warehouses.
    • I think these tools could be useful to webdev projects, and I'm not sure anyone on webdev knows how to use them, so I'll be trying to document things as I go along.
  • SFx 3.0.3 concluded last week, on to 3.0.4
  • Looking to spend time on rewriting the AMO install buttons this week.
  • New Campus Reps design (phase I) should launch next week.
  • Lots of talk of new projects...
    • Campus Affiliates, a pilot project for an upgraded Affiliates metrics system
    • Badges.m.c, would take the Campus Affiliates pilot to the next level
    • Back to school, Upgrade the Web guide,
  • Thinking about Mozilla.com: Making it faster, and making better use of high-traffic real estate.
  • If I get a chance, I'll work on some Community Store bugs.

  • trying to work out why the netscaler is sending password requests (bug 506547)
  • writing API docs (AMO and SSO) since arm seems to be sort of working again

    • Showing off Pootle and getting some feedback
    • Discussing how to allow localizers to translate using Pootle but not forcing them to
    • Gathering some requirements for localization in the near future. We may not have a lack of tools, we may lack a place to "hold the strings together". Make a l10n.m.org like qa.m.org?


  • AMO 5.0.8 set to launch on Thursday, Aug 6th
  • Blackhat/Defcon
    • $some_large_company has a security team that writes all their critical libraries (CC processing, login, etc.) and then makes the libraries so easy to use you'd be an idiot to write your own. Then they get consistency (security) for free.
    • The big SSL hack news that came out (\0 chars) is already fixed in FF3.5. woo.
    • Free email services like hotmail, yahoo, gmail expire your address after $x days. Registering expired addresses for password recovery has been at the heart of several attacks lately - log in to your old addresses.
    • L10n has a whole pile of injection options.
    • Our "building add-ons" page doesn't mention security
    • Our editors' guide focuses on malicious add-ons but ignores vulnerable add-ons
    • Suggestions to help add-on authors: Follow OWASP guide, use similar/prewritten code when possible
    • You know all those people that hang out on forums? Defcon is like that, only in real life.
