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.
So far, AD has been right on the money every time. I'm starting to use 2000091905 as my everyday browser, and things are looking VERY good.
Interesting idea, that Netscape 6 will be based on Mozilla 0.9: just as long as Netscape 6.1 (rather than, say, Netscape 6.01) is based on Mozilla 1.0 and the M0.9 branch does die eventually.
