M13 Alpha - What's Next?
Thursday January 27th, 2000
Mozilla.org has declared M13 to be "alpha" which means Mozilla needs your attention and constructive bug reports as it pushes towards beta. Why not check out the latest builds and start using Mozilla more and more throughout your day?
Also, you can join the gathering in #mozillazine every evening. Talk about the latest builds, help clear out duplicate bugs, or just hang and chat. Point your IRC client at irc.mozilla.org, or, better yet, you can use the Chatzilla IRC client enabled in the latest builds (under the Tasks menu). Just start up the client, /attach moznet, and then /join #mozillazine. You'll probably want to change your nick from IRCMonkey to something more appropriate once you get connected. :-) You can also use the Java chat client on our chat page.

Well just to sum it up, News, Mail, and Editor are applications based and built on top of the browser, so there is a lot of overlap in the code (and therefore people working on the code), and removing News/Mail/Editor would not make Mozilla that much smaller.
Besides a lot of people do use News and Mail, such as me. Although I don't use Editor, it is required by News and Mail.
