*Development*

- We shipped beta 2 last week (Thu for Firefox, Fri for Thunderbird)

- Pushing forward to rc; only a few weeks away

- Please help if you can, and be understanding about bugs which don't
   make the cut

- Please summarise function, testing and potential breakage when
   nominating bugs

*Marketing*

- There will be a marketing plan for 1.5, just like 1.0
- Outline will come out some time in the next week
- Working with Frank to reorganise all the websites (.org vs .com)
- Hoping to do the relaunch a couple of weeks before 1.5 comes out

*Devmo launch*

- Went really well
- Devmo launch picked up by Dr. Dobbs

- Other web development houses and IBM have approached about
   contributing content

*Web 2.0*

- Mitchell went to the O'Reilly Web 2.0 conference
- Speakers were executives only and CTOs
- Found Firefox being really taken for granted as a basis for innovation
   in that world
- People are really grateful for what we've made
- Audio is up on itconversations.com

- Frank recommends Tim O'Reilly's recent article on Web 2.0

- Asa: where is the "web 2.0 buglist"? Can we act as a hub for that?

   invite to a discussion lunch

I guess this means I should not work on anything related to
   https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=259815
or
   https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=231131
anymore? Should I assign them to Frank or mark them WONTFIX?
