I assume there will be a TBB dev meeting tomorrow... unfortunately,
neither member of the Pearl Crescent team (Kathy Brade and myself) will
be able to attend. Here is a brief update from us:
* Related to #4234 (Firefox updater), we commented in child bugs #12622
and #12623, we looked at what it will take to rebase our patches onto
the TBB 4.0a1 builder and browser code, and we researched symlink
support for the Firefox updater (and filed #12647).
"Automate update package distribution for TBB updater"
"Deploy our TBB update archives on a secure machine"
"updater needs to support use of symlinks"
* For Tor Launcher and Torbutton, we fixed the Tor Launcher portion of
#11193 (new logo in the config wizard that omits the word "Bundle"), we
debugged #12264 and handed it to Isis for a fix, and we spent a bit of
time fixing #11472.
"Change Tor Browser Bundle to Tor Browser in package strings, download
pages, and docs"
"tbb-nightly-2014-07-13 chokes with 'Bad password or authentication
cookie on controller.'"
"Onion logo and text on about:tor page may overlap in non en-US TBBs"
We also tried to help test the patches for #12391 and we triaged several
"Building mingw-w64 is failing intermittently"
* Next week we plan to focus on #12647 (symlink support for the updater)
and rebasing of our updater patches. If we are overlooking anything that
is of higher priority, let us know,
