So yesterday, there was a small gettogether on IRC in #venkman to discuss the future of Venkman. Right now the trunk builds are not fully functional anymore, and the last checkins were several months ago. So in fact, it’s in a pretty miserable state.
On to more positive things:
- There is a raw log of the conversation on IRC for those interested.
- WeirdAl and I will be going through the current list of open Venkman bugs today (2007-09-02) starting 12pm PST (noon) – and we need your help! Please drop by in #venkman on IRC if you want to help out doing triage and all that.
- We will try to prioritize the open bugs so we get a reasonably usable trunk build back, and get a new release out ASAP. We can’t currently make promises about how long this will take, as it will depend on how easy it’ll turn out to be to fix some of the current bugs – but we are aiming for a new Venkman release on AMO within about 2 weeks.
- We will try to make a todo list on a wiki somewhere (probably wiki.mozilla.org) to keep track of what will need to be done.
All in all, we hope to get Venkman back to usability and happiness very soon, and to keep it there. If you can help out, please do! Drop by in #venkman, leave a comment here, or on WeirdAl’s weblog. Any help is much appreciated!
