2003-09-22 - Summary of mozilla.org staff meeting
-------------------------------------------------

Present: asa, chofmann, mitchell, gerv, blizzard, bart, dbaron, endico,
brendan, myk, scc.

*1.5 Final update*

- Half a dozen bugs left
- RC2 sometime this week; planned for Thursday
- Nothing on the list which is a regression over 1.4 - which is good

*1.4.1 update*

- It's done.
- There's a problem with Talkback on Linux - needs repackaging
- All builds need to be repointed at our new talkback server
- We may hold 1.4.1 for a couple of extra days to get it on new FTP
system, as a load test
- We can tag it early so distributors can pull it ASAP

*Talkback*

- We are working on making this happen
- We have set up a DNS name talkback.mozilla.org to receive reports
- We need to set up a Talkback server (NT and Solaris)
- We may need to buy NT licenses
- Do we have copies of all the script glue the build/TB team are using?

*Thunderbird*

- Asa: things look really good re: the last release
- mscott is currently on vacation

*September 30th deadline*

- Transition team stop being employed by AOL
- A lot of work to do in the next week, but it can happen
- The deadline shouldn't be any trouble

*Roadmap*

- To be updated shortly by brendan
- Lots to say :-)

*Mozilla Foundation employees mailing list*

- Dawn to add them to st...@mozilla.org

*Localisation*

- We need a better way of contributing localisations
- Localised versions of the homepage would be good in the long run
- Blizzard has an idea and code for a database-backed localisation
service
- mkaply wants to contribute IBM's localisations
- Chris is going to go off and work on this

*Mail and Web moving*

- Dawn wants to move over the email and website services
- Newsgroups may stop being whitelisted, which would be bad
- Used to be a really broad whitelist - Bugzilla accounts, anyone who
ever subscribed to a mailing list
- Dawn is going to investigate the whitelisting capabilities of the new
software
