We haul around an ancient copy of mozilla in-tree. Reimplement the features making use of it in some other way, so that we can get rid of it.
File a new bug for each such feature and make it block this one.
Mozilla for address book under windows only is on-going . Plan to deliver Sunday evening. Have some issues with current build issues on master to test the build.
Will push to gerrit anyway since we could fix smoothly until Beta

Is this still an EasyHack? Or should we better remove the Whiteboard-Status?

> Is this still an EasyHack? Or should we better remove the Whiteboard-Status?
it is already done: in-tree mozilla copy is killed.
Only binary dependency exists on seamonkey on Windows for
mork, O & OE drivers.
so i would close all this series:
this bug and friends (56903 56905 57322)
IMO, not an EasyHack anymore, since we need to introduce a moz replacement for Windows to reach the issue's goal.
Maybe a MediumHack with Research (something like a light GSoC subject ?)
Removing EasyHack for now :-) I guess we still have the Windows / Outlook issues to fix in due course to fully close this.
Adding self to CC if not already on
may we consider this as FIXED or is there still work to do?

Still work to do, still three open bugs that this one depends on.

Indeed, you're right, I had overlooked these. There's still a long way then.
