- Attended the test day. Fixed crash bug 489779 that was found during the day (send in background/later combination).
- Activity Manager
- bug 489588 Hooked up activity manager events and processes to the status bar.
- Send in background bug 440794
- Did a couple of patches reworking the notification system, so that hopefully will have something sane to be able to hook up automatic retry etc. Still needs some work to refine it.
- Almost have shutdown protection working for the case where we don't get quit-application-requested.
- Content Policy
- We're still not (quite) in a position to tidy up our leak output in mailnews (due to bug 384339, then bug 438922 can be checked in).
- However, took a brief look at leaks in xpcshell unit tests - Fixed some leaks due to the tests themselves bug 490468, and fixed one in address book import bug 490602.
- Remaining leaks look minor or possible problems with how the tests tidy themselves up (or don't). Probably will schedule 1 day post b3 to take another look at resolving these.

I return from my trip to Azerbaijan on Thursday night, but with 12 hours of jet lag and life to catch up with, it may be awhile before I return to normal. I've been working on adding a post-bayes filter context under bug 198100, which will allow filtering on junk characteristics. At the same time I'm hoping to provide a body filter capability to locally-stored IMAP in the same patch. This is the last major feature that I hope to land before b3. As I look at my assign list, I still have a number of minor non-blocking bugs in areas that I work in that I want to try to land in TB3. But I will also want to mix in some b3 blockers. Anyone who is familiar with my capabilities should feel free to suggest specific blockers for me to investigate.
