Dev Chat Summary: May 2nd (4.9.6 week 5)

This post summarizes the dev chat meeting from May 2nd (agenda, Slack archive).

4.9.6 planning

  • Decision to push beta back two days gave us enough time to backport all the things (thanks to @sergey for all the work there)
  • 25 tickets left in the milestone, aiming to get to 10 for beta, will likely punt non-GDPR tickets
  • Bug scrub tomorrow will be at 15:00 UTC instead of 17:00 UTC
  • @azaozz lined up to help package up the beta in Mission Control, process to begin at 20:00 UTC
  • Heavy discussion on where to introduce new menu items as part of #43873, four options outlined:
    • 1) All three under the Tools menu (currently how it is in trunk).
    • 2) The settings page under the Settings menu labeled Privacy, and the tools under Tools
    • 3) A new top level menu item for Privacy.
    • 4) Listing the erasure and export tools under Users, and the settings page under Settings.
  • Summary of decision:
    • Export and erase tools remain under tools
    • A settings page for Privacy Notice is added to the bottom of the Settings menu.
    • @melchoyce to follow up with feedback on that settings page.
    • @desrosj to create a ticket for the pointers needed for this work
  • Reminder that after beta ships tomorrow, RC will be up next on Tuesday, May 8th (see: 4.9.6 schedule)
  • Please feel free to drop into #gdpr-compliance to continue discussions or if you have some time available to help out before beta.
