dev.b2g and dev.gaia redundancy?

I'm relatively new to the project but I see more overlap than not lately 
in the dev.b2g and dev.gaia newsgroups.  Are the original motivations 
for having distinct groups still still applicable? Would things be 
easier for more people if we collapsed down to one group? Is that an 
awful idea?

Seem a bit redundant to me as well. I would support moving to more of a "fxos" branded communication channels.

dev-gaia and dev-b2g lists -> dev-fxos
#gaia and #b2g -> #fxos

Best,
Kevin

There are something about Gaia to talk specifically, like how we
should manage shared script, coding style, front-end engineering
specific issues. It's a chicken-egg problem. We just didn't have the
time, maybe the energy, to engaging conversations.

That said, I won't mind if we killed the forum and don't re-spin
unless we have enough volume to warrant a dedicated forum.

I was hoping for a bit more participation here but the limited feedback 
consensus is that we should combine the two lists.

If you have objections to this, now would certainly be a good time to 
voice them.

One other point was raised during this discussion that I'd like to add 
to the proposal.  In addition to combining the lists, we should rename 
the list to something recognizable like mozilla.dev.firefoxos or 
mozilla.dev.fxos

Naming is hard, so let's not spend too much time on that front.

In one week, I'll file the bug to combine and rename .b2g and .gaia into 
one list, mozilla.dev.firefoxos.

(I don't know what's technically involved there, so I'll only commit to 
the bug filing by next week. Not sure when the actual combining can happen.)

So we are deprecating both in favor of dev-fxos.

[PATCH] File::Path::mkpath, /dev, /dev/dir and /dev/000000 changes
While fetching GD with CPAN.PM, I ran into some problems with File::Path::mkpath, in particular with rooted logicals: $ define/job/trans=conceal root_abcd_1 disk:[perl.cpan.build.id.blah.] mkpath('/root_abcd_1/lds') fails with a "invalid parameter" error when it tries to mkdir('/root_abcd_1'). There's a test in the code for a '000000' directory, but not for the lack of a directory....I suspect that the test was put in to prevent endless loops, prior to a modification of the File::Basename code. So here's a change that does the...

Gaia testing for devs
Hey all, To make life a bit easier, we've added a 'make marionette' command to the gaia repository. This will run the gaia marionette tests for you. By default, it assumes a b2g instance is running and will run tests against that instance, but you can also have this command run a b2g instance for you, and test against that. For more information, please read: https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Marionette/Running_Tests#From_Gaia For this to work, you'll need to have a marionette-enabled build of B2G or B2G Desktop. Please follow the instructions here: https://de...

Communication by Firefox devs to add-on devs
The time has come for the developers of Firefox to start communicating with the developers of add-ons. As a case in point: Recently the classic.manifest file in fx3 has had a large number of override codes added to it that reassigned filenames from example.png to example-aero.png. Suddenly, all third-party themes in Vista are now missing buttons in a number of places - some of them not easy to spot (e.g. - the wrap icon that shows up only when you reach the bottom of a page in a page search). If one of the themers had not had a user using Vista who communicated with him, and if the t...

Calendar:Dev Guide -- dev support
Hi calendar team! During todays telco you proposed to get more helpers for LG. Sounds good .... but maybe you can make life a bit easier? Calendar:Dev Guide gives a good overview about the code structure and pointing to a lot points. But how about a CVS link? And how to build a "Lightning.xpi" for testing any changes before going to post a change? I'm using eclispe with ANT (and XULbooster) which is doing very well for CVS as well as to build the XPI. Any help/links for that? G´┐Żnter Hello G=FCnter! The Dev_Guide is a bit out of date. Some things have c...
