Lots of happenings at mozilla.org in the past few days, with a new roadmap up for review, and a new checkin policy, in force. Both are plans for the future of mozilla following Mozilla .9 and Netscape 6.
In a nutshell, Netscape and Mozilla will branch soon, and all Netscape 6/Mozilla .9 work will be on that branch, while the trunk rolls towards a Mozilla 1.0 release. The new reviewer rules are now in effect, and require you to still get a peer review and module owner approval, and along with those a super review from the reviewers group at mozilla.org.
Along with all that, there is a new status update now up, with a variety of updates on what has been happening over the last week.

Well so far nothing works... still. As was suggested I left the User50 directory (didn't work). Tried a few other combinations between them (didn't work), cleaned everything out and tried again (and it still didn't work). I also got an interesting error once or twice: "R6016 - not enough space for thread data", after which mozilla dies. I've noticed that lately a mozilla directory pops up in the windows directory. Well I nuked that. I killed anything with mozilla on it in the windows directory. And there is no entry in the windows/Application Data directory (so I'm not sure what that guy was talking about). Since Mozilla seems to be throwing around lots of undocumented files I searched my system for moz* and even ran regedit and looked at everything in the registry. I reformatted my hard drive 2 months ago, so this is as "clean" as Windows 95 gets (well it's got the general M$ "issues" but I don't have any other problems with any other programs).
So needless to say, none of that worked and more or less I am just hosed. Thanks for the suggestions. I guess if anyone else has an idea I'll give that a whirl too. Guess once the rest of the world starts talking about Mozilla, I'll be the one that was messing with it before it became the hot new software, but mysteriously can't use it anymore (ooh irony!). Well I'll try the nightly in a week and see. Maybe M18 will work so who knows, but if Mozilla 1.0 doesn't work I'll have to go to M$IE for sure. God knows what I'll do for an e-mail client. What's Opera up to these days?
Well it all looks good on Linux at least!
