In Attendance

Development Updates


  • Code freeze is scheduled for this Friday 04/20, but there are still about 60 open blocker bugs on the 1.8 branch, a superset of 1.8.0. Please look at your bugs.

Firefox 3



  • Onsite


  • On-site last week
  • IT worked last week on getting the Mercurial repository set up at hg.mozilla.org; we're now working through the CVS import issues; we've run into a couple of issues, so we'll post to the newsgroups when a clone will give a coherent copy of the import. Expect that definitely this week, hopefully today.
  • I'll be posting a proposal to change the process around cutting release branches; I'll be posting that to the newsgroups, but it's likely to affect how Seamonkey, Thunderbird, and other products release, so be looking for that.
