Agenda and minutes

Firefox 2 archive removal

  • Topic summary: Remove Firefox 2 from the archives because is outdated and we are not able to continue providing security support
  • Actions:
    • Check for extensions and plugins that are not supported in Firefox 3, and remove them, if there are no updates for them
    • Remove Firefox 2 from the archive

abrowser rdepends transition

  • Topic summary: abrowser has its own metapackage which basically means that packages that currently depend on firefox cannot be installed with abrowser
  • Actions:
    • asac and fta to add abrowser to all firefox rdepends and upload; everyone to help updating extension branches

Mozilla Freeze Exceptions

  • Topic summary: Are there any packages that require freeze exceptions from the Mozilla team?
  • Actions:
    • Provide FFe for extension updates (those that are uncompatible with Firefox 3, but there are updates available which are compatible with Firefox 3)
    • fta and asac try to get 3.1 alpha2 into the archive

Team report

  • Topic summary: How to better track what was done?
  • Actions:
    • asac to write down how to get items into the monthly reports and send that to mailing list/wiki

Status of automatic update for extensions

  • Topic summary: What we have, what we need, where we are now?
  • Actions:
    • write a script "download-xpi-from-amo <extension-name> <version>"

    • write a script "request merge <branch1> <branch2>"

    • write a high level script that assembles check-extension, download-xpi-from-amo and request-merge to automatically update upstream branches for extension branches that use the med-xpi orig structure

Other business

  • Problem: npviewer.bin keeps crashing on Hardy
  • Action: file a bug about removing libflashssupport from ia32-libs
  • Problem: outdated extensions
  • Action: look over all extensions and see if they a) have been updated in this cycle at all or b) if they can be updated.
  • Problem: mozilla-devscripts is not in Debian, so we're still diverging from Debian's extension packages
  • Actions:
    • file RFP for mozilla-devscripts and get it into debian archive
    • asac to find out if initial uploads to debian strictly require a wnpp bug
    • blacklist mozilla-devscripts for auto-syncher/MoM
    • create debian branch with initial mozilla-devscript debian1 version
