<< SeaMonkey 2.0 Beta 2 and Lightning | The roads I take... | Some SeaMonkey Statistics >>
Weekly Status Report, W38/2009
Good parts of my time this week were spent in release driving work - triaging the rest of the blocking and wanted flag requests (mostly ones where Ian and/or me were unsure what to do in the past), approving fixes we can still take for 2.0, and trying to poke people to get the remaining blockers fixed and the wanted bugs resolved where possible.
We're down to 7 blockers and two requests made by me now, one of which probably has been rendered bogus as it now has an approved fix. Open wanted bugs are at 27 now, but a number of them don't need to be fixed, even though they would be nice to have. At the same time, fixed bugs since 2.0b2 are up at 76, which is quite a lot for two weeks in the SeaMonkey world and really nice to see!
- Build Machines:
I did shut down buildbot on our Tiger test box as it has started to become somewhat unreliable recently and we have Leopard coverage in any case.
- Lightning Support:
As we have tabmail in 2.0b2, we could support Lightning in principle with that milestone, but found out that Lightning nightlies won't claim they are compatible with it. So I filed a patch to make the minimum SeaMonkey version accepted by Lightning 1.0pre always to be 2.0b2 for now.
A blog post on this seened useful, as people started commenting about 2.0b2 and Lightning in my older entry on the general matter.
I also filed bugs on the two major issues we've been still seeing there, missing pref UI and an error with the invitation UI - both of which have been fixed within this week, either on SeaMonkey or on Lightning, so nightlies on both should work pretty well together now.
- Small Fixes:
I fixed AMO URLs that had broken certificates - this unfortunately has an impact on all localizations without being able to change a string ID, so I posted on the L10n list/group about it.
A small NSS packaging fix also keeps us working with the NSS update that has happened on the platform.
- Default Theme Icons:
The bug about a new icon set for the default theme has stalled for a long time after the main toolbars of all applications as well as the smaller MailNews icons had been done. To get things moving again, I posted a list of icons that are still unchanged from the old set in the bug and I did a patch for the task icons that appear in the component bar at the left bottom of the windows and in the Window menu.
More help on the rest of the missing buttons is badly wanted, this is work that only needs design knowledge, not code knowledge!
- Website Work:
- German L10n:
I added another round of fixes for the latest SeaMonkey code changes.
- Various Discussions:
2.0b2 feedback, EnigMail support, NSS initialization on 1.1.18, gloda test failures, comm-central permissions, comm-central branching, SeaMonkey testday, Thunderbird UI changes, AMO process and reviews, Mozilla Camp Europe, OpenWebCamp Vienna, talk about Mozilla at a FOSS event in Vienna, etc.
I'm starting to feel the strain of the release driving I'm doing right now and the pressure I put on myself due to being so eager for this release to finally happen and be really good.
On the other hand, I've created a counter on my default home page that counts down to the takeoff for my vacation in about 46 days and 14 hours from now - and I have bought our tickets for the Thanksgiving game in Cowboys Stadium in Dallas! Since I saw that new stadium on TV yesterday I definitely know that those tickets are worth the money - I guess it will be pretty much sold out that day, and that means a crowd of over 100,000 people there! This will be pretty awesome! I just hope the Raiders will play a defense as good as yesterday, then we'll also see an interesting game down there on the field, which should complete a hopefully very memorable day...
Before that, there's still work to do though, so that SeaMonkey 2.0 will be a pretty damn good release.
