Roundtable

  • RRRT
    • Firefox 2.0.0.20 -> 3.0.5 Major Update RRRT Page has been created and be found here - Tomcat
  • Contact list for major web properties
      • motivation is to get involvement of website developers earlier, especially those working on marquee web applications and websites we know are popular with Firefox users; never want to see a "Twitter breaks with Firefox 3.1" sort of thing if we can avoid it
      • building a list (on Intranet, to respect privacy) here
      • if you have a contact to add, please do so, or email blizzard@moz with the info if you don't have access to the page
      • want to be able to have contacts to get involvement at all stages:
        • development: testing, help prioritizing work, input to direction
        • qa/release: testing, problem resolution
        • active product: problem resolution
  • Plugin security checkup
      • want to make sure we don't stall on a page on mozilla.com that we can send users to in order to ensure they're up to date on plugins (not extensions, but plugins)
      • work is being tracked in bug 391433 and bug 465890
