[12:00pm] pinkerton: dag nabbit
[12:00pm] ardissone|away: heh
[12:01pm] ardissone|away: mento: for your enjoyment:
[12:01pm] ardissone|away: i don't know where our other folks are today
[12:02pm] ardissone|away: but it looks like we have enough big guns to get started 
[12:02pm] mento: hah
[12:02pm] mento: NICE
[12:02pm] ardissone|away:
[12:03pm] ardissone|away:
[12:03pm] jeff joined the chat room.
[12:03pm] jeff was promoted to operator by you.
[12:03pm] ardissone|away: the story on 1.6b3 is almost the same as last week
[12:04pm] ardissone|away: we're in a bit of a holding pattern while everyone finds time to fix the last little bits
[12:04pm] ardissone|away: since last week, though, stuart's gotten us the appcast script
[12:04pm] ardissone|away: and now a feedhandlers-registering patch
[12:04pm] smorgan: Do we think we can spin tomorrow or Friday?
[12:05pm] ardissone|away: possibly?
[12:05pm] ardissone|away: i've not had any quality time to spend with the relnotes yet
[12:05pm] smorgan: mento: ?
[12:05pm] mento: i'm going away tomorrow and friday
[12:06pm] smorgan: doh
[12:06pm] mento: and am generally out of time otherwise
[12:06pm] smorgan: Hmm... who else can do spins?
[12:06pm] ardissone|away: who else has access to the box?
[12:06pm] mento: can't be done today?
[12:07pm] ardissone|away: if we go without proofed relnotes
[12:07pm] ardissone|away: and without testing smorgan's patch
[12:07pm] smorgan: Well, I can test it shortly
[12:08pm] ardissone|away: ah
[12:08pm] mento: if not today, i can do monday at the earliest
[12:09pm] ardissone|away: we may even have a stable Gecko tag then; dunno
[12:09pm] mento: ss has access to the box
[12:09pm] ardissone|away: but not write access to tag the tree
[12:09pm] mento: you do 
[12:10pm] smorgan: Do we have docs on this somewhere?
[12:10pm] ardissone|away: smorgan: yes
[12:10pm] mento: if you guys want to collaborate with the how-to-mento handbook, you should be able to do it
[12:10pm] mento: if you can't wait 'til monday
[12:10pm] pinkerton: i think i saw that at lowes over the weekend
[12:10pm] mento: the docs are mostly up to date, there are some steps that can be skipped for the 1.6 reease and for betas generally
[12:10pm] ardissone|away:
[12:11pm] ardissone|away: we don't need a gecko tag or tasball
[12:11pm] ardissone|away: *tarball
[12:11pm] mento: yup
[12:12pm] ardissone|away: if we want to blaze through fixing the relnotes, we can probably do that
[12:13pm] smorgan: We'll see where we get, and have Monday as a backup plan
[12:13pm] ardissone|away: getting them into the file after making them not suck is quick
[12:13pm] ardissone|away: (the file has one change pre-staged)
[12:13pm] ardissone|away: anything else on 1.6b3?
[12:14pm] ardissone|away: we're also blocking on getting the website UA detection switched over to js from php
[12:14pm] ardissone|away: sam has that mostly done
[12:15pm] ardissone|away: OTOH, we haven't had issues lately
[12:15pm] ardissone|away: so "yay"
[12:16pm] ardissone|away: for 1.6 final, we have handful of bugs yet
[12:16pm] ardissone|away: 11 targeted, 6 on the ? list
[12:17pm] ardissone|away: most of the former are assigned (and 1/3 are website related)
[12:17pm] smorgan: We should be able to make b3 pretty quick
[12:17pm] ardissone|away: yeah
[12:17pm] ardissone|away: 2 in the ? list have/have had patches
[12:18pm] ardissone|away: one of the others is the loading icon
[12:18pm] smorgan: I'm going to try alternates tonight
[12:18pm] ardissone|away: we'll see what the world thinks of it in b3 
[12:18pm] ardissone|away: cool
[12:18pm] ardissone|away: so, aside from everyone's time constraints, we're in good shape
[12:19pm] ardissone|away: someone remind me to ask marcello about an l10n update
[12:19pm] pinkerton: just cleared my sr q
[12:19pm] ardissone|away: and to make a new table
[12:19pm] ardissone|away: dunno if we want that bug for 1.6 or not
[12:20pm] ardissone|away: anything else in the 1.6 category?
[12:23pm] ardissone|away: aside from the sad, sad world of tinderboxen
[12:23pm] ardissone|away: the other thing is SoC
[12:23pm] ardissone|away: smorgan suggested that (partial) user-script [greasemonkey] support is one, and unit testing is another
[12:24pm] ardissone|away: i mentioned in my latest semi-weekly update we were looking for other ideas
[12:24pm] ardissone|away: and also willing students
[12:25pm] ardissone|away: but should we decide who's going to mentor those two and get them up on the moz page ASAP?
[12:26pm] smorgan: I can certainly mentor one
[12:27pm] ardissone|away: pinkerton: you going to mentor this time around, too?
[12:27pm] pinkerton: i'd like to
[12:29pm] ardissone|away: we don't need to decide/settle all of this right now, but we do need to do it
[12:29pm] smorgan: What's our deadline for posting projects again?
[12:30pm] ardissone|away: student apps open moday
[12:30pm] ardissone|away: *monday
[12:30pm] ardissone|away: and they have all of 1 week
[12:30pm] smorgan: So friday, basically
[12:30pm] ardissone|away: yeah
[12:30pm] ardissone|away: i don't know if we can take ours directly to the front page
[12:31pm] ardissone|away: but if we need gerv-vetting, remember this is holy week
[12:31pm] ardissone|away: and that gerv's 5-8 hours ahead of us
[12:32pm] smorgan: I'm all for posting those two now if no-one else has thoughts
[12:32pm] smorgan: But then, I suggested them, so I guess I would be
[12:33pm] ardissone|away: they seem like good projects to me
[12:33pm] ardissone|away: pinkerton, mento: other thoughts?
[12:34pm] ardissone|away: or jeff or murph, sitting quietly in the back row 
[12:35pm] ardissone|away: yeah, looks like gerv is the gatekeeper for the main page
[12:36pm] ardissone|away: so let's get stuart's ideas up on the brainstorming apge asap
[12:37pm] murph: not much here, I've been busy experimenting with anti-phishing support...
[12:37pm] murph: as I mentioned after the mtg last week, Google's switching over to a radically different API protocol in 3-4 months
[12:39pm] ardissone|away: "fun"
[12:39pm] murph: yeah, and they were unfortunately unable to offer us any URLs to develop against or test with at this time
[12:40pm] murph: but Ffx3 is currently using the v2 spec, so I've been studying it from that end for now
[12:41pm] murph: quickly, I also did look into alternative providers..PhishTank seemed like a viable option, and Opera is actively using them now
[12:42pm] murph: just last night i was able to link Camino against the toolkit, and url-classifier, so perhaps avoiding re-inventing the wheel and at the same time using well-hamered at code could still be the best approach
[12:42pm] murph: since v2 of Google's spec is much more complex
[12:42pm] ardissone|away: mmm, yay
[12:42pm] murph: so that's where we stand with that feature so far, I'll keep working on the various options
[12:43pm] ardissone|away: cool
[12:44pm] ardissone|away: ok, anything else today from anyone?
[12:48pm] ardissone|away: ok then
[12:48pm] ardissone|away: 1.6b3, SoC, other 1.6 bugs
[12:48pm] ardissone|away: have a good week 
[12:48pm] smorgan left the chat room.
