This week I rolled out the l10n changes, after a few more iterations of tweaks / improvements / nice-to-haves. I am coordinating with Hal about when we can cut over from legacy (as this will need his involvement) which depends a little bit on his availability - he has already proactively contacted me to let me know he is quite tied up at the moment, so it is unlikely we’ll be able to engage in roll out work together for the next couple of weeks until hg issues have stablised, and he has completed some work with fubar/bkero and the interns.
I’ve had discussions with Aki about various vcs sync matters (both technical and business relationship-wise) and am confident I am in a good position to lead this going forward.
I also rolled out changes to the email notifications, which unfortunately I had to roll back.
Now l10n is done (apart from cutover) the last two parts are gecko.git and gecko-projects - which I anticipate as being relatively trouble-free.
After that comes git-hg and git-git support (currently new vcs sync only supports hg-git).
Looking forward to getting involved with release process (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1042128)
