2005-12-12 - Summary of mozilla.org staff meeting
-------------------------------------------------

Present:

*Firefox Summit*

- Went really well
- Having more of them would be good
- Criticism: no closing ceremony to say goodbye at

*Engineering*

- Planning wiki link available soon
- People should be working on one of three things:
- 1.8/2.0 stuff on the branch
- 1.9/3.0 stuff on the trunk
- 1.5.0.1 security release off a new 1.8.0 branch (security and
stability)
- Criteria for 1.5.0.1 are looser than previous security releases
- Can perhaps take topcrashers and regressions on a case-by-case basis

- Thunderbird 1.5 going to RC by the end of this year
- Hoping to release in the early part of next year

- Latest 1.5 locales already out; almost done with that.

*Upgrading*

- Firefox start page will be updated to persuade 1.0 people to upgrade
to 1.5
- Bouncer is tracking how many people take that route
- Will turn up the volume on that encouragement as time progresses

- 1.0 auto-update process doesn't have an ideal user experience, and is
hard to roll out
- Quite a few people are on 1.0.4 or below, so are ignoring
notifications anyway
- So we aren't taking that path at the moment

*Awards*

- Momentum press release next week for 1.5, showing:
- CNET Editor's Choice November 2005
- PC Pro UK Real World Award
- 10,000,000th download

*Firefox Summit Results*

- Need to document appropriate outputs in pages linked from schedule
- Need the help of participants with this

*Newsgroup Reorg*

- justdave is working on this
- Working out the communications issues
- Going to conserve subscription lists for equivalent newsgroups
- Goal is to have this done by the end of December

Will https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=318415 make it into
the security release? It's a pretty visible crash.

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=318253 is a stopper for
corporate use. The autoupdate push to 1.5 should not happen, before
this one is fixed.

Excellent suggestion. I have a similar problem with constant popping up
of my VPN login dialog box. Seems to happen everytime there is an
element on a page (or a page itself) that fails to load.
