  • Weekly CABForum teleconference
  • Yet more discussions on Link Fingerprints
  • Watched jst’s video on Gecko internals from devmo
  • Correspondence with Brett Smith at the FSF about GPLv3 draft 4
  • Updated devmo copy of Bug Writing Guidelines based on the new Bugzilla ones; they are now much shorter and clearer
  • Triaged the 5 MPL violation bugs:
    • Two of them were no longer relevant, because the company was gone or the product was old
    • WebRenderer do make source available on request
    • NetDive are taking down their “Oxygen” browser because they don’t have the source; it’s based on 2002-era code (!)

  1. “Triaged the 5 MPL violation bugs:

    * Two of them were no longer relevant, because the company was gone or the product was old
    * WebRenderer do make source available on request
    * NetDive are taking down their “Oxygen” browser because they don’t have the source; it’s based on 2002-era code (!)”

    I assume these are seekret bugs?

  2. Matt: Yes, we keep alleged MPL violations secret because, like the FSF, we find that things are much more easily resolved out of the glare of publicity. In this case, I don’t mind mentioning these companies; Webrenderer have nothing to be ashamed of, and NetDive have dealt with the problem.

    Robin: DevMo Video presentations.

  3. No disrespect intended to the video presenters, but I don’t think any of them should consider quitting their “day job” Hollywood does not becken.
    A smiling Window Snyder with background MP3’s might be better.
    Seriously, the mov format is much more than I think is neccesary here.
    Audio, and clickable thumbnails is all that is needed.
    A couple of quick suggestions:
    Technical presentation in audio only (MP3)
    (I think the presenters would feel more comfortable)
    Slide selection cued by the speaker: slide1 slide2 etc javascript controlled
    And last but not least, a fallback to a high resolution image of Window S
    if a link is not clicked within a minute of the cue.
