Description Lionel Elie Mamane 2012-11-09 05:29:59 UTC
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 [1]. 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 [2]

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)
Comment 5 Mat M 2013-06-03 23:06:12 UTC
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 ?)
Comment 6 Michael Meeks 2013-06-04 08:45:13 UTC
Removing EasyHack for now :-) I guess we still have the Windows / Outlook issues to fix in due course to fully close this.

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.
