status: week ending 1/22/2008

Note: This is an old post in a blog with a lot of posts. The world has changed, technologies have changed, and I've changed. It's likely this is out of date and not representative. Let me know if you think this is something that needs updating.

Things I did this week:

  • Visited the Worcestor office on Thursday.

  • Cut a 1.1.1 rc1 release.

  • Cut a 1.1.1 final release.

  • Built Gutsy, Feisty and Dapper packages for 1.1.1... then spent half a day dealing with repository issues resulting from Gutsy i386 miro-data package being slightly different in some way than the Gutsy AMD64 miro-data package. I haven't figured out the problem here. I'll try to do it this week. I suspect foul play. Probably my fault. If you're having problems with Gutsy, Feisty or Dapper packaging for Miro from the PCF repository, let me know.

  • Pulled an all-nighter Friday night working on and finishing up patches for 400061 and 400064. Then spent several days talking with Mozilla folks, fixing the patches based on reviews and generally trying to get as much done as possible to increase the chances of these patches making it into Firefox 3.

Things I plan to do this week:

  • Continue pushing the patches for 303645, 400061 and 400064 until they're landed.

  • Figure out what the problem with building the miro-data package is.

  • Figure out what to do about a new laptop. I'm currently looking at the Dell 1420N and System76 laptops. Any thoughts on Ubuntu-based laptops would be hugely useful.

  • Try to avoid getting involved in anyone else's work until the patches for Firefox are out of my hands.

  • Spending some time with my wife before she forgets who I am.
