Temporary Geek Home

Went to the Toronto Mozilla office today. Spent the afternoon reviewing add-ons and I also got to put some faces to names. Since last Friday when we got training from Alex Polvi to be editors for AMO, I've reviewed 14 extensions and I'm learning a lot about the process.

Ted said he'd be reviewing my patch tomorrow and we're hoping to land it in the next few days. As far as I can tell right now, the only issue should be that my error handling is currently just printed to stderr and doesn't actually change the srcsrv flag.

So fingers crossed - there might be source server on the debug builds by the end of the week. This means the rest of term can be devoted to pdbstr.exe. I have yet to communicate with Timeless who is the recommended contact to discuss things of this ilk.

Over reading week I should be able to do some more digging into those hex dumps as well as start testing the source server once it's on Tinderbox.

Hey! I wanted to go down to the office to visit but I am stuck here with so many projects every day, sniff, sniff... I want to stick faces to names too!

See ya next week
