The HorizonScript specification is mostly complete; it will proceed to the comment phase at the same time as the Project Requirements.

The Project Requirements themselves are progressing nicely, with the main sections left to be written being the Disk Partitioner, the Boot Setup, the Runner process, and non-functional (performance and reliability) requirements. Logging, accessibility, and the on-disk HorizonScript format are also being discussed and specified.

General discussion

Samuel Holland (smaeul) has fixed the 32-bit PowerPC ABI in the Rust compiler, which should solve the issues building Firefox for 32-bit PowerPC.

Have fun this week!
