[Chandler-dev] Dogfoodable desktop checkpoint

Some time ago, we identified that we would like to be able to point
our dogfooders to some checkpoint of the desktop before Preview is
released so they can help us find bugs and try out some of the new
features. This enables us to get some early feedback that we can act
on prior to Preview. Although we understand that you can currently
download any build and start doing this, we would like to identify
some build that we feel is stable enough and has some core fixes that
would enable us to actively recruit new users and encourage current
dogfooders such as Mitch, Esther, Davor and others to upgrade from
Mimi, Aparna and I have done a review of all the P1 and P2 bugs in
bugzilla to isolate some subset that we think we need to fix in order
to get this checkpoint. We are tagging them as blockers for 0.7. Many
of these have been fixed over the course of the last week and there
are currently only 2 bugs.
+ This is a recurrence issue and we made it a blocker simply because
some of our core dogfooders have a lot of recurring events on their
+ This bug has to do with the conflict management dialog. We targeted
as a blocker because we will be asking our dogfooders to spend some
time trying to generate conflicts and test out these workflows and
fixing this makes it less confusing.
+ This bug is for changing the OOTB configuration. We need to have
this in place before we go out and recruit new dogfooders since the
current setup is confusing. It also probably should have been done
before we reached feature freeze.
Of course we will continue to use the blocker flag throughout 0.7, I
just wanted to give people some context on how it's being used right
at the moment - so we can get to this dogfood checkpoint build.
