Mid term evaluations are here and I hope to have a progress meeting with my mentor to get his detailed feedback on the project.
I have packaged the MailNews sync engine into an xpi file and uploaded it to the mailnews sync project site (http://code.google.com/p/weave-mailnews-sync/downloads/list). It requires Firefox 1.4 (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/10868/) to work (it is basically an extension of an extension!). The MailNews Sync extension currently syncs status, flag and tag data of Feed and Newsgroup items between different Seamonkey instances. I tested it on Seamonkey 2.0. I couldn't test it on Seamonkey trunk 2.1 yet but I'm hoping that everything will work smoothly there as well. Since comm-central build is not working (sm tinderbox is having a few hot days..) I will test with currently available nightly build.
Few things left to be done this week:
- Decide on a solid test plan for MailNews sync engine
- Start testing and bug fixing for mailnews engine
I have posted the MailNews engine test plan to the project site ( http://code.google.com/p/weave-mailnews-sync/wiki/TestPlan?ts=1279510088&updated=TestPlan ). Testing will be done using 4 configurations.
Week 1 (18th to 24th July) :Config 01&02
Week 2 (25th to 31st July) : Config 03&04
All issues will be reported and tracked on http://code.google.com/p/weave-mailnews-sync/issues/list.
Testing begin today!
