Trunk nightly update from 20080328 to 20080329 broken

The nightly update for Thunderbird trunk today is broken, and it will cause Thunderbird to crash after doing the partial update. Please do not update Thunderbird trunk nightly from 20080328 to 20080329.

The full download nightlies still work properly though.

The bug (425950) has been filed.

Bug Day on Thursday 27 March 2008

The Thunderbird folks are organizing a bug day this Thursday, 27 March 2008. The schedule is as follows:

Asia session – 14:00-16:00 (Beijing)
Europe session – 14:00-16:00 (Berlin)
America session – 12:00-14:00 (Los Angeles)

The focus will be on triaging unconfirmed Thunderbird bugs.

How?

Triaging is easy! You don’t have to be able to understand computer languages in order to triage most bugs.

You just have to try and reproduce the bug by following the steps written in the report. Add a comment stating whether the bug still applies in the latest supported version of Thunderbird 2 (2.0.0.12), or in the trunk nightlies (3.0a1pre) for the more adventurous.

Thunderbird 2.0.0.12 builds:

Windows builds Official Windows installer

Linux builds Official Linux (i686)

Mac builds Official Mac (Universal binary)

Please drop by #bugday and help us get our bug numbers down; we need your help! First timers and experienced triagers welcome.

I will be available throughout all three timeslots to assist anyone who wants to contribute. (My nick is "nth10sd") Several experienced folks will be there to assist as well.

Update: The results of the bug day have been posted to Mozilla Wiki.
