Then, enter the forum for this article and give us your nominations (you need to be a mz member to participate in our forums. When you nominate, be sure to include the category (you can abbreviate) and the nominee's name in the subject, and in the message body describe why you are nominating them, and provide links to examples if you've got them (no HTML is allowed in our posts; it's best to just place the URLs on lines by themselves).

<> designed and constructed a bug reporting tool for the masses (with a really cool simple search form for querying bugzilla). Her Bug Helper can be found at <> Her contributions to better bug reporting can also be found in the excellent "Help Mozilla Performance" how-to on submitting performacne related bugs which can be found at <…ity/help/performance.html> And finally and of great matter to me and many others, Christine has been a leader in the effort to get people involved in testing and bugwork by making them feel like valuable contributers to the project.

This last part is about attitude more than anything and I'd like it branched into a new award with cbegle as one of my nominees and Seth Speitzer (<>)as the other. This catagory could be called something like "S/He Gets It - Best Open Source Attitude from a Netscape paid employee" Making 3rd parties feel welcome takes time and effort. I believe it will play a great part in Mozilla's success and would like to see those who "Get It" be rewarded.
