Round Table

  • mconley
    • GSoC is wrapping up
      • Jon Demelo’s connector is pretty much done, and we’ve tested it against Radicale, and it seems to work as advertised. Ensemble now has theoretical connection support for CardDAV. \o/
      • Fallen’s got patches up for Thunderbird dev tools. He’s got Scratchpad working, as well as the Inspector, Web Console…and others. It’s really _really_ awesome. See
    • Chewed through some reviews yesterday. Still have to do more.
  • tessarakt
  • jcranmer
    • Getting reviews on the new header parser! Should land this week
    • Fixed the perma-bustage on our builds! Just down to the click-to-play plugin bustage
    • Probably busy for the next few days due to school
  • clokep
    • JS-Yahoo is ALMOST preff’ed on by default in Instantbird, working with qheaden to get this done in the next week
    • Will attempt to get this merged into Daily ASAP.
  • wsmwk
    • crashes – still no obvious big bad boys in beta, nor so far ~2 hr into release – will probably be a different story in a couple days. But it’s fascinating to see some early crashes that repeatedly hit the same user multiple times, that don’t have reported bugs – see
  • Usul
    • had semi organized test – which was a big fail. (maybe too many holidays?)
    • busy and burned out by day job – slowly following on stuff
  • JosiahOne (not at meeting)
    • Very busy now with classes now, however I still managed to land a few more theme patches in the past week.
    • New composer UI for Linux and Windows has been slow to work with for a bunch of reasons, however things seem to be functioning properly now. So hopefully it’ll be done within a couple weeks.

Question Time

  • Is there anything TB related planned for Summit?
    • That’s a really good question. I think the agenda is still very fluid.
    • I (clokep) would at least like to know who’ll be in each place and meet them!
      • clokep, mconley, jcranmer, JosiahOne, irving, wsmwk, will be in Toronto
      • A lot of Instantbird people will be in Brussels (aleth, Florian, Even)

Action Items

  • [Standard8] mconley nominates Chiaki Ishikawa for friend of the tree. Swag?
  • [Standard8] Are WADA and Aryx from previous nomination covered already?
