Status Updates By Team

Firefox

Planet Firefox to track all the developments.

Gecko

mozilla-central has been closed since yesterday in order to find a solution to a bad rename changeset landed late Friday.

It is not yet clear how this will be resolved, but for now, everyone who is working on a clone on mozilla-central is advised to update to revision 28086cf6ede8 using the hg update -r 28086cf6ede8 command, in order to minimize the problems in updating their clone when the problem is resolved.

Watch the dev.tree-management thread to follow the progress of this issue.
