<< Back from FOSDEM 2008 | The roads I take... | Integration eines Magento-2-Webshops mit FreeFinance und selbstgebautem Warenmanagement >>
Weekly Status Report, W08/2008
As reported earlier this week, I spent a quite interesting weekend at FOSDEM - the happenings page has links to all blog posts, photos, and slides from the Mozilla people who were there this weekend.
During the whole week before, I spent a large amount of time preparing my talk about "Community Project Organization and SeaMonkey 2" - I hope that work resulted in an interesting hour on Sunday. The calendar folks at least told me they're facing the same challenges in project organization, and Gerv states that bmo reorg scripts are now being written.
Chatting with people on FOSDEM about various topics surrounding SeaMonkey was quite interesting, looks like SUMO people are open for cooperation on improving SeaMonkey support, the calendar team is looking forward to see Lightning in SeaMonkey (though they probably are just as short on time and developer force as us), SeaMonkey users are very much looking forward to SeaMonkey 2, and localizers to full source L10n, just to name a few things.
Adrianer from the Polish team brought up some issues with nightly updates, we'll need to take a closer look on those.
- Preferences work:
Sanitize got partial reviews this week and seems to be nearing checkin readiness, the porting the application panel patch triggered more review comments that need to be addressed, same for appearance prefs and ChatZilla integration (which probably also needs some talk to the reviewer to explain some changes he doesn't fully understand yet).
I'm currently (post-FOSDEM) picking up all that work again.
- German L10n:
Fixed de for the pre-FF3b4 L10n updates, and kept SeaMonkey up-to-date as usual.
- Various Discussions:
California traveling, password manager (core fixes now reviewed!), toolbar customization (pending core fixes), overlay handling (pending core problem/fix), shell service, Mozilla Messaging, etc.
The FOSDEM weekend was great, the only real problem was that two days are just too short to fit all those interesting talk and chatting with all the interesting people in addition to that. I couldn't even get around to actually bowl at our Saturday evening 10-years-anniversary party at the bowling center, having so many great conversations. I once read about the KDE people doing a hack week, maybe we should think about sometime doing a hack & meet week in such a style...
