Mozilla 1.8a6

  • 3 weeks left in beta including the freeze
  • Want to stay locked down through beta to a branching point for Gecko 1.8 (as normal)
  • There will be Seamonkey, Firefox and Thunderbird releases from this branch
  • Want to use a start page redirect to drive 1.8a1-1.8a5 people up to 1.8a6.

Firefox 1.0.1

  • Stability and security update on Aviary 1.0/Mozilla 1.7 branch for Seamonkey and Firefox
  • Haven't yet nailed down the exact fixes we want
  • There's a dependency on some u.m.o. work — it needs to be able to support the load

Firefox 1.1

  • Meeting tomorrow 4pm to look at ben's plan and see if three weeks is enough time before we UI freeze
  • Release has expanded in scope from the original plan; was a trunk sync, now has features
  • Extension community needs time to rev
  • l10n community also needs time
