Weekly Status Report, W36/2007
- Website work:
Some smaller updates have been done on the new SeaMonkey site, no major changes, though. It will probably still take a bit until this is fully ready for production.
The new start page should be fairly ready for taking over the default SeaMonkey homepage though. Please direct any further comments to the the development newsgroup.
- Source L10n:
After my work to get the ball rolling on source L10n for ChatZilla and venkman, I ran into the discussion I've been awaiting and the I more or less intended to trigger with that work, and we're nearing a solution that should probably work for all in-tree extensions some time in the future.
We'll probably go with so-called "dependent language packs", which is very near to what ChatZilla used to do up to now, in a way that also fits with 1.9-style way of doing things, but doesn't lose backwards compatibility to older applications.
See the L10n newsgroup for more about this.
- German L10n:
Checked in another small update for other shared L10n, and a significant amount of the DOM L10n update should land soon, so I hope we can make German trunk tinderbox go green.
- SeaMonkey vendor ID and profile location change:
The patch to Change SeaMonkey Vendor ID to "Mozilla" should go in soon, we are currently figuring out how to concretely get the profile location move and helper scripts for it announced to nightly users.
- Themes move:
The move of SeaMonkey-specific theming to suite/ is done, I'm still looking into what we can clean up in the toplevel themes/ directory as Camino-like-Firefox is, unlike Firefox, still using "something" from there.
- Mozilla Foundation ED Search:
The Mozilla Foundation Executive Director Search Committee is ready for the first round of interviews with candidates for this job. This round is closed, only the Committee knows who are candidates are and only we are interviewers as well as listen to what the candidates have to tell. This is for getting a first impression of who those people are, we'd like to pull more community members into the second round and possibly be able to make the third round completely open, so that everyone interested in the community can participate at least as listeners/viewers then.
See also the minutes of our July 26 meeting.
For now, we're in the early stages and only starting on the first, closed round of interviews. I'm anxious to hear what our candidates have to tell us. Unfortunately I'm only participating on the phone, it probably would be nice to actually see faces as well or be in the same room, as some other Committee members actually are.
- Various Discussions:
notification bars, toolbar customization, storage templates, SeaMonkey packaging, L10n repackaging, login manager, automatic updates, community giving etc.
As a side note, I did meet timeless, a long-time Mozilla contributor, on Sunday while he was visiting Vienna - if anyone of you is stopping by here in his travels, pass me a note, I'd be happy to meet and chat with other Mozilla folks. I can also show you around here, if you like
