<< Please Help Testing: "Quick" Security Release for SeaMonkey 1.1.16 | The roads I take... | Where's "Networking" in Today's Social Web? >>
Weekly Status Report, W14/2009
- Release Management:
I started the release process for a 1.1.16 release that fixes the recently found exploitable XSLT crash for which Firefox released 3.0.8 as well as two other critical vulnerabilities that enable us to stay OK from a security POV even when Firefox 3.0.9 is being released and advisories go public with it.
- SeaMonkey Buildbots:
For getting a fix for the SeaMonkey MacOS mochitest breakage to actually work, I needed to switch our buildbot configurations to calling the make targets instead of runtests.py directly, and so I decided to give the buildbot configs a long overdue overhaul to be more similar to what the Firefox buildbots are calling. Along with that, I enabled a11y tests for SeaMonkey.
I found one more abstraction problem that keeps us from going all the way with both builders and testers (and make both use generic pools of slaves), but I spent lots of time this week one making the tester buildbots use a configuration that is very much like what the Firefox buildbots are using. The builders will follow when the abstraction works properly and ultimately we will merge both together and even enable release automation with the same master and the then-existing generic slave pools.
- Automated tests:
I did a new patch for browser mochitests, but correcting those context menu accesskeys along with that isn't that easy after all.
- German L10n:
Updated German strings to current SeaMonkey code.
- Various Discussions:
Modern theme updates, GSoC applications, www.mozilla.org redesign, mailnews disentanglement, security firedrill, stringbundle implementations and getting formatted strings, BMO process changes, etc.
The Mozilla Europe Community Tour makes stopped in my home town of Steyr on Sunday and we had quite some fun then and on Monday. If you are somewhere along their way, feel free to contact Sonny, Greg and Arzhel, they're cool guys and surely happy to meet you!
