Weekly Status Report, W36/2008
- Build System Work:
make install is now fixed for comm-central.
SeaMonkey-specific security pref files moved to comm-central now, just before they were migrated to the new SeaMonkey prefwindow, and winhooks prefs could be killed now that shellservice obsoleted that.
- Build Machines:
When the new shellservice UI landed (yay, we can set default application on Vista correctly now!), the default testing profiles needed a fix so mochitests don't pop up that default application window and fail.
- Code Cleanup:
Landed a number of patches for killing xpfe-style chrome versions, the main patch can only be landed last, I'm waiting for DOMi review to complete this.
- SeaMonkey Releases:
The release process for SeaMonkey 1.1.12 is continuing, the candidate builds look good in terms of testing on all platforms so far, schedule for September 16 still stands.
- SeaMonkey L10n Builds:
This week, I did even more work for localized builds for SeaMonkey from our buildbots: language packs are added now, as well as the complete MARs for automated updates, but the update server still has no information about them, so you won't get them offered right now.
Additionally, the localized nightly builds are in latest-comm-central-l10n now for consistency with where Firefox and Thunderbird are staging them.
- German L10n:
Some updates to German SeaMonkey L10n, and some dummy/small L10n changes to test new L10n build stuff mentioned above
- Various Discussions:
Nearing Alpha 1, compare-locales, drag and drop, Bugzilla update, etc.
We are freezing all SeaMonkey-specific code today, September 9, at midnight PST for SeaMonkey 2 Alpha 1. There is a small number of open blockers but most of those are near completion. Getting all the preference panels ported to the new prefwindow was a huge effort, and it did really go fast and well nearing this deadline, huge thanks to everyone involved in this effort!
Starting with this freeze deadline, only patches with approval-seamonkey2.0a1+ or fixes for blocking-seamonkey2.0a1+ bugs are allowed to be pushed into SeaMonkey-specific code. We can't freeze MailNews or the platform but we hope we can pick a relatively stable point of those to cut the alpha once all blockers are fixed - I hope this can be in about a week. We're really knocking on the Alpha's door now.
That said, I'll probably not be online much at the end of this week, celebrating my 30th birthday on Saturday. But no fear, I was told there's life beyond 30, so I'll probably be back and going strong after this weekend!
I'll keep on rollin' with the flow...

I can confirm, there is life after 30 years. (RESOLVED - VERIFIED)
