Weekly Status Report, W40-W42/2010
Week 40 (Oct 4 - 10):
Cared that 2.9.9 building ran to completeness, and started off 2.1 Beta 1 Builds. The latter needed a fast fix for Mac repackaging and a second build to be done for it.
- Build Infrastructure:
Blocked all updates for 2.1* on PPC due to issues with the code.
Visited the Release Engineering and Server Ops teams in Mountain View and had some chat with them about their and our infrastructure.
Fixed a forgotten reference as a followup to my OpenSearch patches, so that Tools > Search the Web would work again.
- SeaMonkey Add-ons Website:
Met in person with fligtar from AMO and discussed a number of topics surrounding SeaMonkey support on the Add-ons Website. We could resolve a few issues by giving me some privileges and getting an understanding of how things work. The compatibility center needs work to display correct numbers there - without it, even the Firefox and esp. Thunderbird numbers are wrong, when that's corrected, it should be easy to have things working for us as well.
I need help on what should be displayed in the discovery pane and for recommended add-ons.
- SeaMonkey Future:
Heavily discussed possible future scenarios for the SeaMonkey project and myself with Mitchell and other people at Mozilla headquarter at Mountain View. Some progress, some surprises, a lot of improved understanding. Interesting times are upcoming for sure.
- SeaMonkey L10n:
Prepared SeaMonkey for the Mozilla 2.0 branch.
- German L10n:
Did some last-minute fixes for 2.1 Beta 1 and landed another Help update from Michael.
- Various Discussions:
SeaMonkey Developer Meeting, Thunderbird, security, Mozilla website domains, etc.
That week I did almost all my work from the Mozilla offices in Mountain View, California and had a number of personal chats with people there about all kinds of topics, mostly surrounding Mozilla, Firefox, and SeaMonkey.
Week 41 (Oct 11 - 17):
Week 42 (Oct 18 - 24):
Shipped SeaMonkey 2.0.9 and 2.1 Beta 1.
- SeaMonkey Developer Meeting:
The first ever SeaMonkey Developer Meeting took place in Vienna on Saturday and Sunday that week, uniting 15 people from around the world in talks about the current happenings and the future of the SeaMonkey project. The meeting was very productive, most of my time that week was spent on getting the last organizational questions resolved and the meeting underway, so not much time was left for other work (other than the releases) or even reducing the backlog from vacation.
- Various Discussions:
That week started off with getting home from California on Sunday, and directly lead to the SeaMonkey Developer Meeting, which topped it off - it ran in a fast pace but surely was quite interesting.
Meanwhile, I mostly am on top of the backlogs, but haven't really started on the various TODOs yet, the list of which is somewhat huge now. Still, I should be mostly back to normal again - the update for the current week should follow on Monday or Tuesday!

We actually had 18 people including yourself... for the actual meeting part... a few had to leave though, so by sunday night it was 15 of us, iirc.

Please, don't struggle to solve everything at once. Take it easy, and don't let anything nor anybody, including you, make you overburned.
