    • re-pack progress: ready to go, need to confirm repacking against 1.8.1
    • Jeff -> Brazil
    • Wes is working on a new bug dashboard: (Feedback welcome!)
    • Would be really cool to use `Target milestone` field in bugzilla when we land the related fix. (And ensure always filling bugs for errors/exception that users can face.)
    • Nigthly support and AMO. Needs to wait for final 1.9 (?) to upload a fix for nightly support.
    • bug 683217 ( " {Cu} = require("chrome"); doesn't let you use Cu.import("somejsmodule");" ) has reared its ugly head.
