An increasing bug number is a result of a bad planned test strategy, a lot of the bug\'s appear by randomly accessing the web. If you remember the PDT phase, I would also not call it a planned release strategy. A change in the bug curve would indicate that we are moving toward something that could be branded as 1.0 and this should be shown as one criteria in the roadmap. I did a query for open browser bugs its above 8000. Assuming that 30% are dupes, and that we know all bugs, it will require 5600 bugs to be fixed. If you distribute this to a year this means more than 15 bugs fixed every day, without any regressions, and taking a regression rate of 30%, it would require 20 bug fixes per day. It seems that mozilla needs more contributors otherwise all these roadmaps are sweet dreams.
