We’re moving into “crunch time” for the Sunbird and Lightning 0.3 release schedules. This means that it’s more important than ever for the community to get involved, helping us to ship a high-quality release on time. The details of the release process are being tracked on the Calendar wiki. There, you’ll find an overview of what we’re planning for this release, a release schedule, and fairly up-to-date status reports on different development areas.
As I said, we want the community to get involved here, and there are a variety of ways you can help:
- Test nightly builds – Download the latest nightly build of either Sunbird or Lightning from the links on the right. Play around with it. Report bugs you find (after searching for duplicates) in Bugzilla. Note: We’re going to be doing a major push for more testing coverage in the coming days. Keep your eyes open for future announcements.
- Nominate blocking bugs – The 0.3 release drivers are doing their best to get full coverage of Calendar bugs to find bugs important for this release. If you think such a bug has been overlooked, nominate it for blocking by setting the “blocking0.3” to ‘?’. (See also lilmatt’s description of blocking flags)
- Write patches – There are still quite a few bugs that block the release that are assigned to firstname.lastname@example.org. We need people to step up and fix these. Fixing even one bug makes a huge difference!
We hope you’re as excited about the upcoming release as we are! Thanks in advance for any help you can give.
