status: week ending 1/15/2008

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 It's likely this is out of date and not representative.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.

It was a really busy week--I essentially worked for the last 7 days straight. It's been a good/bad week for me. I:

  • pushed out the Miro 1.1 release on Thursday which had some minor release-engineering issues (I forgot the symlinks for Miro.dmg, the appserial number is 20080101000 but should have been 20080110000, and Feisty and Dapper won't build)

  • I updated the instructions for releases in the wikis which improves the release process going forward

  • I spent Thursday night, Friday and most of Saturday investigating the segfaults with the Dapper and Feisty packages and traced it down to the fix for bug 9373

  • I backed out the fix for bug 9373--I'll release Feisty and Dapper packages when we "release" Miro 1.1.1

  • I worked on the Firefox patch work for bug 400061

  • I made some more changes to the patch for bug 303645, it was reviewed, and it looks like it's on its way to Firefox 3 (assuming all goes well)

I'm going to spend the next week:

  • aiding Paul with the Miro 1.1.1 release

  • continuing the work on bug 400061 and friends
