SeaMonkey Meeting Details


  • Who’s taking minutes? -> Ratty

Action Items

(who needs to do what that hasn’t been recorded in a bug) We should assign people to the open items.



  • Get permission from Google to use their geolocation JSON service [KaiRo]. Contact at Google says: “We don’t have a good estimate for when GLS will be opening up more broadly, but I will be sure to let you know when we take that step. Sorry that I can not be more specific at this time.” – We can only wait right now.


  • Should we have all NEW bugs that had no comment after 2005-03-10 mass-changed to UNCONFIRMED?
    • [KaiRo] has blogged and posted, we need to decide on what to do.
    • See Any other business? for the resolution.

SeaMonkey 2 Beta 1

Bug Queries

open blockers (1)
all blockers (2)
blocker requests (1)

  • SeaMonkey developers will need to nominate bugs that they think should be considered for blocking Beta 1.
    • IanN has completed triage of the blocker nominations.
    • Confirmed one; Asked for 3 to be renominated; and 1 for confirmation if it is still an issue.
  • Tentative Beta 1 freeze date today!?
    • Thunderbird 3.0 beta 3 dates are still totally up in the air, what should we do?
    • They are waiting for Search to land and it’s looking quite close now but they still have 30 blockers left.
    • When TB does decide to freeze, Standard8 thinks it’s going to happen quite quickly.
  • Thunderbird has added one more beta (beta 4) to their schedule, will we do a beta 2 as well?
    • Probably.
    • There are issues that definitely need an extra step between beta 1 and release.
    • We could make it the mail beta and concentrate on integrating stuff from TB3.
  • Tabmail is still the biggest missing item.
    • Prerequisite for Lightning which we would like to support.
  • We might want to take bug 474701 depending on how it works out in Thunderbird.
  • Possible blocker bug 484175 (History Import from SeaMonkey 1.1.x is not working).

Longer-Term SeaMonkey 2 Planning

open wanted (12)

    • LANDED! Thanks to Callek and mcsmurf for the work!
    • bug 472001 UI for download manager.
      • LANDED!

    • No news.
  • bug 460699 Make the default theme look better on mac.
    • No news.
  • bug 410613 OpenSearch. helpwanted.
    • We need to check if OpenSearch can support all our existing functionality, for example the INTEPRETS section in Sherlock search plugins. Mnyromyr will check on that, and on how extensible the Firefox code is.

  • bug 460953 Port jminta’s kill-rdf to SeaMonkey where applicable.
    • There isn’t any urgent need for progress on this as long as we don’t break. It might be good for extensions if we to convert our folder pane to be JS-driven e.g. calendar wants to put items there.
  • bug 460960 Port Thunderbird tabbed interface to MailNews.
    • New patch submitted. Waiting for reviews.
  • bug 348720 New icon set for “SeaMonkey Default Theme”.
