A few things have happened that I keep meaning to talk about, but never find the time.
Tomorrow at 9:30am PST (1730 UTC) is the first weekly status call for Thunderbird (well, first that I know of). It’ll be chaotic and unstructured I’m sure, but we’ll figure it out over the next few weeks. One of the big topics for discussion will be how to structure the work towards our first alpha of 3.0, which won’t be feature complete by any means, but should be a good first step towards releasing a stable Thunderbird build off of the current 1.9 trunk of Gecko. Crawl, walk, run.
Today, Emre and I started the move into the new Vancouver offices of Mozilla Messaging, at 675 West Hastings (the old RBC building, for the locals). Possible karmic connection: just yesterday, the impressive boring machine made it through to the Waterfront station across the street. I look forward to that giant hole in the ground being filled again! I was a bit sad to leave my friends at ActiveState where I’d been staying, but this way I get to make new friends at Actenum.
Also worth noting is this post by Gen Kanai about recent Thunderbird activity in Japan. It’s interesting that the Mopera extension he talks about is exactly what we’re talking about in the newsgroups this week.
