Attendees

fallen, wsmwk, rkent, aceman, paenglab, makemyday, magnus, jorgk,

Current status and discussions

  • 36.0 beta is out

Critical Issues

Critical bugs. Please leave these here until they’re confirmed fixed.

  • Auto-complete improvements – some of those could go into esr31
  • ldap crasher
  • certificate crasher
  • Lightning integration
  • AB all-acount search bug 170270
  • maildir UI
  • video chat The initial set of patches, with IB UI, may land this week (they’re up for final review). We’re considering also landing a set of matching strings for TB so uplifting a port of the UI becomes possible. I’m not sure the feature will be ready to ship in TB38 as it has not undergone much real world testing yet, but you never know, there may not be any nasty surprises ;)

Release Issues

Upcoming

  • Thunderbird 38 moves to Earlybird ~ February 24, 2015
    • string freeze

Lightning to Thunderbird Integration

See https://calendar.etherpad.mozilla.org/thunderbird-integration

  • As underpass has pointed out repeatedly (thanks for your patience!) , we need to rewrite / heavily modify the lightning articles on support.mozilla.org. let me know irc: rolandtanglao on #tb-support-crew or rtanglao AT mozilla.com OR simply start editing the articles

Round Table

Paenglab

  • I’ve requested for bug 1096006 “Add AccountManager to the prefs in tab” for Tracking_TB38.
    • Is this bug desired for TB 38? It would be needed to enable PrefsInTab.
    • If yes, I have a string only patch to land before string freeze.
  • I’ve also requested for Hiro’s bug 1087233 “Create about:downloads to migrate to Downloads.jsm” for Tracking_TB38.
    • I’ve needinfoed him to ask if he has time to finish, but no answer until now.
    • It has also strings in it. I could make a strings only patch if needed.

sshagarwal

  • Plan to land AB fix bug 170270 for TB 38.
  • Bundled chat desktop notifications bug 1127802 waiting for final review.

  • triage topcrashes
  • working on HWA question bug 1131879 Disable hardware acceleration (HWA)

We need people to commit to being mentors.

Lightning to Thunderbird Integration

See https://calendar.etherpad.mozilla.org/thunderbird-integration

Round Table

JosiahOne

  • So I started a new job recently, but because of that plus school, my time for TB stuff is very, very low. I will continue doing ui-reviews and reviews, but implementing anything has pretty much come to an end until summer break.

wsmwk

  • release management https://etherpad.mozilla.org/XxBwrpMHKz
  • disable HWA for 38? it has been suggested by someone in support to disable because “3d acceleration … does little or nothing for Thunderbird but messes menus, font and causes crashes (the kind with no crash reporter reports).” bug 1131879

rkent

  • Hot bugs
    • bug 1125577 – startup crash in NSSCryptoContext_FindCertificateByEncodedCertificate (and similar bug 1128614)
    • bug 1124015 – Add UI to select maildir for storage when creating accounts
    • bug 1119529 – Sending message succeeds but Error “error while running message filters on it.”
  • Unfortunately a long review queue that I will be looking at for the next few days.
  • I now have access to Thunderbird ADI data. Our ADI reached a new peak last month (in spite of SlashDot assuming “Thunderbird usage is dropping”) and Japan has now surpassed US as #2 country (after Germany).

jcranmer

  • Hopefully going to work down my review queue by this weekend
  • Main jsmime perf regression fixes are r? rkent
  • I have a non-promisified version of OAuth2, but still no UI hookup
  • Mozharness-based mozmill tests: I’ve updated the runner, need to make updates to three or four repositories to make it work
    • Trying to get this in progress for Thunderbird 38, so we don’t need to maintain the old mozmill buildbot stuff for ESR
  • I’ve been doing some work with the emailjs team to add functionality to their SMTP libraries (specifically with regards to SASL) that we could share between TB/Whiteout.io/Gaia email teams.

TheOne

Jorg K

I have an XP machine (32 bit), I could run (not build) and debug (with WinDbg) the beta, if that’s of any help. I’d need to know where do download it … and the mentioned suggestions to try. (Contact via e-mail to start off).

mkmelin

  • autocomplete:
    • the critical regressions fixed
    • 3 prominent complaints still not done: the “tab too quickly doesn’t complete”, “show as red even if found”, “insert link missing paste url in context menu”
    • ordering: now landed on esr, some complaints still, need to investigate

Question Time

I’d like to know what happened to the “Thunderbird Discussions with Mozilla”, ie. the letter that was meant to be sent to the Mozilla management, re. funding, donations, staffing, etc. There was a lively discussion on the tb-planning mailing list in early January 2015.

  • won’t happen before 38 branching

Support team

  • As underpass has pointed out, we need to rewrite all the Lightning articles, they are out of date whether or not we finish the integration for TB 38. email me or irc roland or just edit the articles (see above under “Lightning to Thunderbird integration”. Tonnes do you have time to write some of these Lightning articles in English?

  • Note – meeting notes must be copied from etherpad to wiki before 5AM CET next day so that they will go public in the meeting notes blog.

    • Frequent POP3 crasher bug 902158 On current aurora and beta?
      • we won’t have data/insight till next week, assuming the relevant builds are built. crash-stats for nightly builds is not useful – direct user testing of the fixed build is required
    • Self-signed certs are having difficulty bug 1036338 SOLVED! REOPENED according to the bug?
    • Auto-complete bugs?bug 1045753 waiting for esr approval bug 1043310 Waiting for review, still

– save etherpad before clearing for this meeting, if etherpad wasn’t previously cleared (but copy “Action items” to the top before clearing)
– after end of meeting, copy entire etherpad contents to a new dated wiki page on http://mzl.la/tbstatus so that they will go public in the meeting notes blog.

Attendees

  • rkent, florian queze, irving, rolandtanglao, magnus

Action items from last meetings

  • rkent and wsmwk to unblock / deal with bienvenu bugs

Current status and discussions

  • no progress on “bienvenu” bugs
  • comm-central changes on hold pending mercurial changes and signoff by smedberg
  • discussion about kent’s modification to Thunderbird governance proposal is positive
  • much work on summit and video from mconley and rkent
  • summit agenda planning, rkent to ask in tb-planning

Round Table

jcranmer

  • Likely won’t be at meeting today, one of my meetings changed time slots to start 30m before this one
  • according to gps, hg partial checkouts are targetted to land 3.2, more likely to land in 3.3 (release dates of Nov 1/Feb 1, respectively)
    • bsmedberg has said this is his blocker for letting c-c merge into m-c
    • gps plans to make it a high priority to update to newer hg quickly, and now has a new role to make that more possible
  • Played with putting OpenLDAP server in a Docker container

JosiahOne (Not at meeting)

  • Have done reviews and have been giving feedback in bugs, but personal development time has slowed. My development machine has to have a part replaced on Saturday plus I have papers and college applications to finish this month, so availability will be limited until around the time of the Summit.
  • OS X Codesign V2 status is coming along, I’m mostly just waiting for a finished version of the Fx implementation.

rkent

  • Summit: we really need a group of people to work on the agenda. Volunteers?
  • Discussion of reorg plan?

mconley

  • Now acting as interface between TB community and ProTravel Inc
    • The attendees list has been garnered from the wiki, along with 2 extras from Fallen and Florian for Calendar / Chat. Waiting to hear from a few more.
  • Re-connected with Aaron Mandel about a fundraising video. Quote is approximately $600 (+tax), since he likes Mozilla and wants to give us a deal
    • We need to find a good variety (accents, countries of origin, languages) members of the TB community who are comfortable / articulate in front of the camera (about 5-7 people), and come up with “our story”. I suggested our audience be current TB users who don’t actually know what’s happening with Thunderbird.
    • Quickly talk about where Thunderbird came from, the transition to community development, and where we are now – and why we need help. Instead of just talking heads, these interviews will be interspersed with shots of people checking their email, doing calendaring, chatting, etc.
    • We need the quick and punchy stuff: “Put users in control of their email”, “Your email is yours, even when you’re offline”, “Lots of tweaks and add-ons for power users”
    • We also need to send Aaron TB art / assets for graphical work.
    • Once we have our story, we’ll put together a really basic script, so we know who to put in front of the camera, and what questions to ask.
    • Then, I’ll meet with Aaron face-to-face 2 weeks before we shoot to make sure we have everything we need
    • During the summit (probably the Friday), we’ll pull our 5-7 people aside, ask them the questions we’ve scripted (maybe several times to get the sound bites we want), and then Aaron will cut together the video.

clokep (Not attending)

  • Been in contact with some of the DarkMail developers, have been trying to get them to ask questions in #maildev, but they seem to like to ask through me.
    • They’ve said things like “Random people don’t get answers there”
    • More likely they’re working during times when “we’re” not online.

Support team

Action Items

  • mconley: Come up with a short-list of volunteers to go on camera, send out emails with questions on them to get responses, find the responses that resonate, and from that, assemble our script.

Action items from last meetings

  • [Standard8] Are WADA, Aryx, Chiaki Ishikawa, JosiahOne and jcranmer from previous nomination covered already for swag?

    • Standard8 is on it, but needs to dig through some info in his inbox.
  • [mconley]
    • Thunderbird usage data isn’t public. Standard8 was tasked with getting that information released. What’s the status on that?

      • Metrics is still needinfo’d on getting non-staff community added to usage metrics report emails

Critical Issues

  • [rkent] Binary add-on issue with TB 24?

    • jcranmer and irving suggest speaking with Fallen – they suspect this is fixed.

    • The builds that came out for 24.1 timeframe release did not fix the bug that rkent is talking about – but extra numbers have been added to AMO to mark compatibility (you’ll need to do rebuilds to side-step the compat issue).

Round Table

  • jcranmer

    • Working on converting JSMime into a separate repository (thanks to James Burke for being patient with me and my packaging issues!)

      • The separate repository will be JSMime 0.2, as I have decided to rework the API to be more idiot-proof

      • Tests are now up-to-date for comm-central, need to port tests for RFC 2047 and address header encoding/decoding
      • Not announcing this more widely public yet, since the conversion process is very messy and I want to embed reviews from the start.
    • Alder is now reserved for the final stages of ccrework, and I should be in contact with releng on getting this done.
    • Some minor build-engineering work with moz.build conversions or ontology
    • Still awaiting review from Neil.
  • JosiahOne (No outgoing audio)
    • Been busy with exams last week, so I didn’t accomplish as much as I wished.

    • I have started re-organizing the directory/file/image structure inside themes/.
    • I plan to create a shared themes directory similar to Firefox unless the build peers/owners are against it.
    • Waiting on review from Mike Conley for the animated thunderbird tabs.
  • clokep
    • Still working on the IB->c-c chat/ update, waiting on reviews from Florian now.

    • Was at the GSoC Mentors Summit ([1])
      • A lot of people told me they were happy we were still working on Thumderbird!

      • A lot of people thought Thunderbird had been killed -> more on this in my blog post
  • mconley
    • Patch to allow us to use nsIPermissionManager to store mail content preferences is up for review. \o/

    • I wrote some mail to tb-planning about the AMO to Marketplace move, and what that means for Thunderbird (and SeaMonkey).
    • Did more reviews, but they’re starting to stack up again
  • Paenglab
    • Waiting for feedback from mconley for bug 925746

Question Time

  • [clokep] Do we still need to use tb-planning? I’m STILL moderated on it after an insane amount of time using it.

    • Can we switch back to using m.d.a.thunderbird? If we have issues with “idiots”, we can always moderate it. (I want my nntp back.)

    • Alternately, can we freely give out posting privileges to people.

Action Items

  • [mconley] Ask jorgev if Marketplace merge would accept patches to make Thunderbird work there…

  • [mconley] Can we pull jb into this AMO discussion? Can we get an advocate higher up the Mozilla-chain? jb+gerv?
  • [mconley] Talk to bwinton and see if we can get “the regulars” whitelisted on tb-planning.

      • The hacks are incredible. [mconley says] You have no idea what kind of hacks rkent has to do. They’re unreal. rkent wants to reduce the number of hacks that he has to use in order to reduce fragility.

      • [mconley says] rkent would like to be able to use a separate database for message storage, because Mork is insanity.
      • [mconley says] rkent thinks TB needs sources of monetization. irving loves to work for free, but some of us like to be paid, so that’s what I am working on, to monetize Exquilla.
  • aceman
    • Working to fix breakages that are candidates for TB 24.0.1, e.g. bug 922614, bug 882901, bug 921410.

Question Time

  • [jcranmer]: With Thunderbird 31 it makes sense to have some kind of new feature that we can put into the What’s New page that is easily visible to users. What feature is this?

    • [jcranmer]: Internationalized email addresses? [aceman says] What is not working with them? There were some patches in the past to allow sending to IDN I think (ask mkmelin). (but only email addresses, not server hostnames).

    • [jcranmer]: new addressbook?
    • [jcranmer]: Recording a video message, and sending it through external file storage service as a link (like Filelink)
    • [jcranmer]: OTR chat
  • [jcranmer says] Wanted to talk with asuth and squib about making Gaia email client and Thunderbird share more code. Will send email this afternoon.
  • [rkent]: When is the information going to be publicly available for TB usage

Action Items

  • mconley

    • Thunderbird usage data isn’t public. Standard8 was tasked with getting that information released. What’s the status on that?

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 https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=876636
    • 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 http://tinyurl.com/omgxfnk
  • 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?
