  • Builder
    • This seems really bad. (wk)
  • SDK
  • Roundtable
    • What's the status for the AMO validator? Are we waiting for a push this week? (wk)
    • What release do we want the new per-window private browsing support shipping in? (bug 748604) (wk)
      • The feature in Firefox will probably be in Firefox 17 or 18.
      • Erik's landing things on SDK master (1.11), which will target Firefox 16/17.
      • Do we want a deprecation warning to get into SDK 1.10 (targeting 15/16)?
    • Don't Panic add-on by Erik
    • Tab.favicon is a synchronous getter, and Fennec does this operation asynchronously, so Erik is not sure how to proceed here..
    • tab.index can't be set
    • Need a good example to demonstrate api-utils/event/core
      • Should be a stand alone module and not a internal module so that users can play with it to build an add-on with help from our documentation.
      • Is panic module too complex?
      • Another example is a bookmark module, problems are:
        • uses chrome
        • will likely be part of sdk at some point
      • have a better example idea?
  • window-utils vs window/utils
    • documentation in either is incomplete & sketchy
    • this module area seems like a crucial one to design well & freeze so that it can be relied upon for more serious integrators - access to a window without requiring chrome is quite powerful.
  • The Japanese team has translated the SDK tutorials: :-) All of them! And there's a bug to support i18n for the developer guide: Can we make a plan for this in the work week? After attending the MDN meetings in Toronto last week, I'm doubtful that MDN will work for us any time soon.
