Yesterday evening all calendar-related code from the trunk was synchronised with the MOZILLA_1_8_BRANCH code branch by Dan Mosedale.
This will allow us to build versions of Lightning that work with Thunderbird 1.5 and it will give everyone who is building from the branch an up-to-date Calendar extension, if they’ve built with the –enable-calendar build-option.
Additionally, we’re in the process of getting some Tinderboxen up and running (thanks Chase!) at http://tinderbox.mozilla.org/showbuilds.cgi?tree=Sunbird-Mozilla1.8.
In the not-too-distant future, there should be some sort of server-based mechanism (as per bug 322260) that we can use to automatically sync trunk checkins to mozilla/calendar to the branch. Until that mechanism arrives every developer will commit to CVS using Myk’s cross-commit tool for
committing to mozilla/calendar.
The idea would be that development and testing would continue to happen as per usual on the trunk, but that we’d try and fix any lossage that the cross-commits did to the branch ex post facto.
