Weekly Status Report, W48/2008

Here's a summary of SeaMonkey/Mozilla-related work I've done in week 48/2008 (November 24 - 30, 2008):
  • Build System:
    The L10n Makefile restructuring for all three comm-central apps landed, as well as a fix for the zip and MAR breakage caused by that restructuring, which was partly my oversight (zip part) and partly ported (MAR/update stuff). The latter also needed a L10n buildbot change, but the whole generation of localized update files is nicer code now.
    When the Mozilla build team reported that the directory name of Firefox 3.1b2 builds wrongly was uppercased inside the zip and .tar.bz2 packages, I created another patch for this in the prettyname bug.
  • Misc Development:
    After another Thunderbird header view change caused the SeaMonkey mail window to break heavily, I discussed the matter with SeaMonkey and Thunderbird developers and came up with a patch to fork the XBL for the header view widgets, reverting the SeaMonkey part to pre-TB-patch state and fixing our side. Later I came up with the Thunderbird side of the fork, but that one is still awaiting review.
    I also fixed up the icons in the Mac Modern task menu which looked garbled due to not supporting -moz-image-region.
  • Release Management:
    We froze comm-central for Thunderbird 3.0b1 and SeaMonkey 2.0a2 on Tuesday, and subsequently I handled a number of approvals and tried to get things moving on the last blockers. We should be fairly close to relbranching and tagging now and hopefully should have candidate builds for Alpha 2 soon.
  • Websites:
    Finally, the long-going chapter of obsolete L10n docs on could be closed by just removing the complete directory of old MLP pages from there. There is an archive page for getting the historical content, and current docs are on MDC and the Mozilla wiki.
    The 1.1.13 relnotes got a bit of an overhaul, removing the link to old Mozilla 1.x end user docs and including the content from there in the SeaMonkey site.
    Answering a request in a bug report, I also created screenshot pages for SeaMonkey 1.1 and SeaMonkey 2, those still need better linking though.
  • L10n:
    I posted in the L10n group/list about SeaMonkey 2.0 Alpha 2 and L10n, announcing that we'll have experimental language packs once again, but no localized builds.
  • Various Discussions:
    Details of 1.9.1 branching, UI changes from 1.x to 2.0, EV UI, new cert error page, toolbar customization, mailnews de-rdf, help viewer, etc.

Alpha 2 should be pretty much wrapped up, and I think it will be another good milestone to show people and to get some testing on. Watch the newsgroups for a request to test the candidate builds!
