  • mak
    • working on blockers (see above for status)
    • done reviews
    • bug 483980 – Allow history/bookmark observer components to register with a startup category. Looking into this, fixed leaks and a possible Places bug.
    • bug 493538 – Crash in [@ nsNavHistory::RecalculateFrecenciesInternal(mozIStorageStatement*, int)]. Most likely blocker.
    • bug 392193 – first run migration / import from ie, opera and safari browser can be slow, migration should use “run in batch”. Landed with awesome numbers.
    • bug 488966 – Add a last_visit_date column with an index to moz_places. Need to prepare unbitrot patch for 1.9.1.

  • adw
    • bookmarks initialization is not fault tolerant bug 478912 – Posted another new WIP with a new approach. Next: tests.
    • clear recent history/privacy blockers
      • CRH deletes places, not visits bug 491883 awaiting Johnathan’s review. Patches are really simple.
      • Places toolkit bug 491983 (removeVisitsByTimeframe) landed on trunk. Awaiting Dietrich’s review of 1.9.1 patch.
      • selected option in privacy pref pane not sticky blocker bug 490199 – Landed on trunk and branch. (Follow-up bug 493527 nominated for blocking3.5…)
    • clear recent history dialog polish – requesting review or approval1.9.1
  • ddahl
    • bug 491719 blocker – French Localization uncovered SQL binding issue: Patch up, needs tiny tweak, one final test where I alter the build’s locale file. Then check-in. Branch patch will differ by one colon char (i think)
    • bug 492379 Good start on downgrade script for nightly users. I hope to be back on this (and finish) tomorrow.


  • MDC
    • the migration guide needs history api and dynamic container examples. (dietrich)
    • the design documents linked from MDC need to be written. can probably cull from the old design overview docs.
    • Documentation non-existent:
      • dynamic containers (MaK77)
        • will do as soon as they are working properly


  • bug 489173 Issue with size of places.sqlite and Google Toolbar
