Action Items

Friends of the Tree

Conversion Funnel (Priority 0 side project)

Thunderbird Development

Feature Work

Account Provisioner:

Pluggable Mail Stores (bug 402392):


Thunderbird Conversations
  • Thunderbird Conversations released. Thanks to everyone for relaying the news. This has been on Lifehacker, Reddit, GHacks, and various other websites. Lots of retweets.
  • A few comments on Twitter and the blog post. Went from 92 downloads/day to 1500. Statistics were initially pretty good, except there hasn’t been a significant increase in the number of users as I expected. Low retention rate, I suspect people are afraid of Trunk.
  • Lots of bugs reported. Still a lot of open bugs. Managed to kill a few, the fixes are in the nightly versions.
  • Next: Andy and Bryan have some work to do and a few things to help me on, I think we can aim for a new release maybe before Christmas with mostly bugfixes in, or maybe next year.

Trunk (Miramar) Development

  • Active branches.
  • Next Alpha: Early January.
  • Help on fixing blockers would be very useful and appreciated, see this list of higher priority bugs.
  • blocking criteria :
    • Alpha 1 -> Serious usability issues.
    • After -> not real criteria, regression/usability issues as usual.


  • Decision on if/when we’ll do 3.2 on hold until we progress account provisioning further.

Thunderbird Stability & Security Releases

  • 3.0.11 and 3.1.7 released.
  • Planning to shut down 3.0.x nightly builds after Wednesday 15th, now that 3.0.x is end-of-life.
  • The wiki page on the process for landing security patches has now been made generic so that it applies to all security and stability branches.
  • Bug Lists: 3.1
Major updates to 3.1
  • -> 3.1.7 Major Update refresh this week.
