Can't great events in Lightning 3.8a1

Along with not being able to dismiss events using the "Dismiss" button I 
reported in m.s.calendar before the coffee kicked in, I can not create a 
new event.

There is no response from the time field.

Also tested Snooze and Snooze All buttons and they don't respond.

That was using the latest builds of Thunderbird Daily and Lightning.

CLI option to open the calendar


Is there a CLI option to open the calendar?  I cannot find it. [1]

I would prefere something like:
thunderbird -calendar

Or something like:
thunderbird -extension lightning

What I want is starting the calendar from the Gnome menu. I can set
Thunderbird as default application now. Thunderbird opens but not on the
calendar tab.

With regards,
Paul van der Vlis.

Lightning nightly no longer showing Google CalDav calendars

There's something weird going wrong in Lightning:

- None of my 10+ Google CalDav calendars are showing anymore.
- The calendars are "switched off", and when I switch them on, they just 
immediately turn off again.
- in the Add-on's About dialog, the Build ID is blank.
- The add-on will update over and over again.
- The latest build on the FTP server is from 27.8.2014.

Is this known? Is there a bug number I can watch (instead of panicking 
here :-) )?

Bugs I think are important:

Lightning 3.3 and TB32B

Lightning appears broken on TB32B.  Calendar is empty and blocks can't 
be selected.

comm-central build system changes

As you are no doubt well aware, building comm-central applications have 
become rather annoying as of late. I told myself that if I had time, I 
would put it first into pseudo-rework. It turns out that I unexpectedly 
got a bit of time. So I'm working on pseudo-rework, and it's already 
close to starting to land. :-)

What is pseudo-rework? It is, in short, an attempt to try to make the 
build system think that cc-rework has happened without it having 
actually happened. The name is courtesy of Mike Hommey. The work is 
divided into three phases:

As it exists right now:

1. Merge the two object directories into one. Effectively your code will 
look like:

This by itself isn't particularly helpful. The reason it's a separate 
phase is because it does provide some protection against m-c build 
changes, and because automation hates phase 2 right now.

2. Move the object directory to actually be $MOZ_OBJDIR. Effectively:

Hi Robert,
Lightning follows the release cycle of Thunderbird and Firefox: a new
release every 6 weeks. Since it follows Thunderbird's release more
closely, there's actually a release only every ESR (which is when
Thunderbird releases), but beta versions are important to Seamonkey
users, which still release once every six weeks.
What might be confusing is that to sign off the correct revision in the
dashboard you don't have to sign off the calendar beta (or aurora) line,
but you have to sign off the Thunderbird one (if the revision you want
for calendar is newer than the signed off revision for Thunderbird,
otherwise it's already included).
Depending on how your team work, you might have to talk to the
Thunderbird translator and ask him if it's ok for him to sign off a
revision newer than the one he/she did.

Schedules for Lightning (beta) releases

Hi all,

just today I realized that the current Lightning beta 3.2b1 uses a
not-up-to-date german localization. I must have missed the right moment
for a new sign-off on tb_beta tree after merge days.

But I have to admit that I lost track of corresponding deadlines for
- Is there a fix release cycle for Lightning beta releases? Are there
corresponding deadlines for l10n changesets?
- If not: Do we have some kind of announcement/reminder for beta releases?
- Is there an updated version of the really helpful
lightning-l10n-release-calendar Philipp sent us as .ics around 2012?

Can someone shed some light on this for me, please? Thanks in advance!

Confused regards

"horizontal tab" characters not correctly encapsulated in Description area


	I think I have found a bug but I would like to get confirmation here 
before filing a new bug on bugzilla.

	Here are the steps to reproduce the issue:
1. Create a new event
2. Open any text editor and type any text
3. Insert a "tab" character into the text
4. Copy-n-paste the text into the event's description
5. Save & close the event.
6. Open the event again

	At this point, the "tab" character would become the letter "t".  So it 
seems like the character was not correctly encapsulated during save.

	I'm using the latest TB and Lightning.

	Can anyone confirm this issue?

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 

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.

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.


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


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.


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.
