Community

Developer Relations

  • Firefox 2 developer documentation is essentially complete, aside from minor cleanup and any bug fixes needed; there are no known bugs at this time.
    • Planning to add a session store sample this week.
  • DevRel pitched in to help get user documentation updates wrapped up for RC1.
  • Nutch is now working to provide improved search capability. Go to Special:Nutch to try it out; it needs testing before we replace the current search with it.
  • We could use some help with some PHP code and assorted other web coding to help improve MDC.

    • HTML-ification of mocks underway -- see Remora Dashboard for more info. See Remora Interactions for mocks.
    • Standards, server reqs, naming conventions, coding style guide, licensing, etc. have all been discussed further in the last week or so. See the Main wiki page for more info.
    • We've also solidifed our SVN structure -- see the project in SVN if you'd like to dig through it.
  • Firefox Party!
    • Review of Firefox Party tool this week -- still would like to wait to have it code-complete (it's at 95% now) so we can stage it. Cursory review was OK -- it looked sane.
