comm-central is now approval required

Hi folks,

Multiple people have been landing patches affecting Thunderbird (inc 
Lightning) on comm-central without starring previous failures, and 
ensuring there were no new permanent failures.

There has been one new permanent failure, plus another one I'd say was 
suspect.

We must be tracking these, to ensure we're not getting new failures in. 
Whilst staring is a pain, if we get too many failures, we'll need to 
close the tree completely until we get those resolved.

That's something I've been trying to avoid. As a result of the lack of 
starring, we are now on approval required.

Before requesting approval from jcranmer or myself, please ensure all 
previous oranges have been starred before requesting approval - if there 
are new oranges, or oranges without a bug, they need investigation and 
backout or bugs filing/fixing, before landings can continue.

Mark.

Proposal: Move Thunderbird and SeaMonkey to mozilla-central

[follow-ups to mozilla.dev.planning]

tl;dr We're proposing to move Thunderbird and SeaMonkey into
mozilla-central to reduce maintenance complexities for build systems,
and for releng. Multiple-app handling in the same repository has
improved greatly, and the general rules would remain the same.

Feedback and discussion is most welcome - we have generally discussed
this within some individuals, but not widely.

Proposal
--------

We'd like to move Thunderbird and SeaMonkey (i.e. most of the contents
of comm-central) into mozilla-central.

Schedule:

We're looking to complete this in the Gecko 31 cycle, as then we'd be 
able to pick it up in the next ESR cycle.

We already have this in preview mode running on the Alder twig.

Reasons:

There are several primary pain points that make things more complicated
for Thunderbird development, and its support for releases from releng.
The overarching reason is that this merge would reduce the amount of
work required to keep Thunderbird building to support security releases
and community development, and allow more focus on other areas.

Re: Planned synchronization

It could be that your event cache database has become huge and that is 
slowing it down. Try closing Thunderbird and removing it from your 
profile (calendar-data/cache.sqlite).

Sun/Oracle is currently not contributing towards the Calendar Project.
The WCAP provider is pretty much in the same state it was when Sun left
the project. There are no planned improvement on the WCAP provider, nor
is it guaranteed that future changes in Lightning will still be
compatible to the WCAP provider.

If you have a support contract with Oracle, I think the best way to go
about this is to ask them to fix it. They have skilled developers that
can handle the situation and I am sure that if the client requests it
they will comply :)

Re: Planned synchronization

Fixing performance issues is an ongoing effort. See
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=733039#c52
for some information about why its not so easy.

There is a GSoC project proposal this year to work on performance issues
using a specific method and another one that will make the storage
provider a lot faster.

I hope this will make it better for everyone.

Planned synchronization

Hello

I am using Thunderbird and Lightning since years.
The only thing that disappoints me is the Synchronization, that is very
disturbing, because every time the Calendars get synced Thunderbird stops
working for minutes and the Calendar sidebar gets rebuild more than once. This
is done every 10 to 15 Minutes,

I have set the Calendars to 60 Minutes synchronization and where I could to
manual but that is not helping.

I think it would be better if you could give Times for Synchronization of all
Calendars in the Lightning Settings instead of periods in the Calendar Settings.
Lightning should use another  thread so it is not disturbing Thunderbird. At
last it should only rebuild the sidebar if an Entry ended or new entries be
displayed. But not if the Calendars get synchronized.

I hope that the problems in Synchronization of Calendars get fixed  so that
Thunderbird / Lightning will be a real Alternative for MS in this part to.

Thanks,

Event Invitations autocomplete doesn't autocomplete e-mail addresses

Event Invitations autocomplete doesn't autocomplete e-mail addresses. I 
type in someone's name (who is in my AB) and I get no autocomplete. How 
can I (or Lightning) fix this?
