Localization

  • Gonna do limited outreach to some localizers
  • Not gonna block shipping in 3.6 based on participation in this beta, as the release cycle is small. Being in RC 1 is gonna be key, though.

Partners

  • Yahoo! plugin favicon branding change requested, would like to get them into 3.6. Old and busted red y-bang to be replaced by passionate, new purple y-bang (new favicon). May require mods as colour is a little dark on OSX.
  • Would like to get dynamic updates for the Google plugin (bug 511017) into 3.6, which apparently requires some love on bug 514377.
