Weekly Status Report, W43/2010
Due to an unfortunate in-the-wild security exploit for Gecko, all Mozilla project needed to do a fast-turnaround release. Firefox managed to ship theirs slightly under 48 hours after this vulnerability had been reported, I worked on that "oilspill" on our side and could ship SeaMonkey 2.0.10 a small number of hours later with some help from Callek. From the start of any actual work on the release engineering side until everything was out on the wire publicly, we took just slightly under 24 hours even though our build hardware acted up a little.
I also reported a possible improvement for some helpful script that helped me out of a situation that needed ugly manual work previously.
- SeaMonkey Developer Meeting:
On Monday, 10 people from our core community continued the first ever SeaMonkey Developer Meeting here in Vienna with a hacking day, and the fours of us even left on Tuesday did a small sightseeing tour in this beautiful city. I hope everyone enjoyed that, and I hope the hacking day also was a positive experience with some nice results.
- Various Discussions:
Missing L10n builds, SeaMonkey future, Bugzilla changes, 0day and reactions, some beta feedback, anti-spam measures on newsgroups, etc.
Following my post on personal priorities, I'm trying to cut down on my work time to arrive at saner levels and make room for adding in this "life" things potentially, which is said to be really awesome once you get the hang of it. Also, I might even cut down SeaMonkey work more than that to make room for other things I'd like to work on, I'll see how that works out.
That said, the discussion of the future of SeaMonkey is written on a different page, we're working on it, made some decisions, need some more discussions with other parties, but large steps are upcoming there. The SeaMonkey project will move on, but will still be around and probably for quite some time. How much I will be involved for the long run is something I'm currently thinking about, but I surely will help in this transition that is upcoming and ensure that it can go on - with out without my involvement.
I personally am trying hard to get a grip on some real life and a hopefully bright personal future - and don't fear, I'll still be around for quite a while (or more)!
