  • Look here for interesting queries related to Gecko 1.9.1.
  • For a great update of what’s going on in Gecko, take a look at last week’s Gecko meeting notes. Highlights include:
  • Tracking 17 1.9.1 blockers.
  • 87 wanted bugs

    • 25 P1s. These are bugs we feel would really, really make a good release if we had a solid handful completed.
    • 23 P2s. These are medium complexity bugs/changes that are nice to have.
    • 20 P3s. The lowest priority bugs for this release. These are the ones that we will definitely take, but the others take priority.
