Minutes of the mozilla.org Staff Meeting of Wednesday 26th March 2003
by MYK MELEZ |
Attending: Scott, Dan, Marcia, Asa, Mitchell, and Myk
Mitchell in Germany
Scott going to Carnegie-Mellon
- Mitchell went to Germany to talk to the OpenOffice folks.
- They are a vibrant group.
- They have many similarities to the Mozilla project, since it was also launched by a single commercial vendor which contributes significant resources.
- The project, with Sun's encouragement, is working on ways for the community to have greater input into decision-making.
- Scott going to Carnegie-Mellon to talk about using Mozilla technology.
- MacOS X XPInstall functionality is now working.
- Asa tried a bunch of apps, extensions, and themes, and they all work.
- Asa is going to get Sean to apply the fixes to the 1.3 branch and then get the builds going and released ASAP (f.e. next week).
New stuff in 1.4a:
- This week Asa is going to try a 1.4a release.
- He has been doing some build smoketesting and it looks good so far.
- twalker's smoketests passed.
- One top-crasher fix in cookie code is wanted; otherwise we can release as soon as possible, possibly tomorrow.
- mostly just clean-up and fix-up from 1.3.
- Undo/redo in bookmarks
- improvements to pop-up blocking
- dynamic image and table resizing in composer
- smooth scrolling
- a few other small features or feature improvements
Wednesday Talk at Open Government Conference
- 1.4 alpha will be using a shared GRE for Windows but not for Linux or the Mac.
- The Mac build guys and the Camino guys are resisting using a GRE because it doesn't allow for a static build and that degrades startup perfomance a lot.
- Linux could happen sometime in the 1.4 cycle.
Sun's Module Requests
- Several Mozilla talks: Stoltz, Boswell, Baker
- The talks were interesting but not well attended, probably because of the war deadline.
- Some people from Sun want various statuses.
- Asa will ask Brendan and make the necessary changes in despot if he approves.
