- bug 469606 |nsEudoraEditor.cpp(134) : error C2511: ‘nsresult nsEudoraEditor::PreDestroy(void)’ : overloaded member function not found in ‘nsEudoraEditor’|
- And working on other areas… like
- infrastructure for running tests
- filing bugs for leaks in (TUnit and Reftest) tests
Any other business?
- Now that feeds are in mailnews we probably need to get some reorganisation of components in bugzilla.
- We should talk with the mailnews people on what they want on this.
- We should also file a BMO reorganization bug to track SeaMonkey/Thunderbird requirements.
- Thunderbird is moving towards building mozilla-central nightlies as well as mozilla-1.9.1 nightlies. What are SM plans on this?
