Jetpack Project: weekly update for October 02, 2012

Project News

  • Erik blogged about his excellent work on porting the SDK’s windows and tabs modules to Mobile Firefox!
  • Not to be outdone, Will also blogged about our recently retro-fitted module lifecycle process and policies.
  • Will has also just kicked off a lively thread over in the Jetpack Google Group about community-developed modules. If you’ve got opinions, favorites, or a secret-but-awesome module or module idea you want to share, check it out!
  • After what could best be described as not a great week for Builder, we were able to push the correct version of SDK 1.10 to builder yesterday. If you use builder and have submitted an add-on to the AMO queues in the last week or so, please replace that xpi build with a fresh one!

Meeting Brief

  • Helping FirefoxOS: Alex will be on loan to the Gaia team for the foresee-able future – please do not assign reviews to him!
  • Builder: we pushed the correct version of 1.10 to builder yesterday after some delays from last week.
  • SDK: looking at a panel bugs and reducing cruft in the pull request list – also, we can craft test add-ons, to, er, test things.
  • Roundtable: some of the team have been blogging up a storm, while others are heading to Berlin this week for JSConf.
