was recently a shift in development to the preference dialogs (perhaps
partly my fault for things being blocked) but I don't think it's the
best focus for our limited development resources. Preferences is in M1
so we can have profiles for testing (since we aren't implementing the
doorhanger in this milestone) but that was also based on working on the
core problem (autofill/autocomplete) in parallel. Since we only have two
developers now, I think we should focus on getting the harder problems
solved and laying the foundation for others to iterate on eventually.
Steve and Luke have context on autofill/autocomplete that someone new to
the team wouldn't have so I think leaving the more straightforward
preference work for people new to the team would be ideal.
For example, I think focusing on bug 1300990
would be most valuable.
that make sense? We need to do the preference work eventually so it's
not wasted effort to do it now but I think it's not helping us move
forward on the core of the feature.
Let me know what you think,
