"Recently several new projects have been added to mozdev for a total of 23. Some of the most recent projects that were added include mozmp and lizzard, media player projects similiar to Real Player and WinAmp. Also recently added is the Snippets project which acts as a central repository for code fragments that other projects might find useful, and the Sherlock project which collects different search engine sidebar enhancements in one place. If you haven't checked it out recently, come on over and see what we're working on."


#18 javascript prefs and the buildbar

I don't expect average end users to find the javascript rules feature or the bugs and link that talk about it (I don't expect or for that matter even want end users to be using or expecting _anything_ from daily mozilla builds). I do thin that this was working in Netscape 6. My point is that the functionality is coming along and already usable by anyone above average enough to be reading a Mozilla advocacy discussion forum. There are bugs about the UI for this pref (I think you can find them from the links I gave in my post above) and I'm sure that as usual the folks working on this would love some help (patches).

As far as user comments in the BuildBar is concerned, I propose that any discission of the quality of the daily build should be carried out on irc.mozilla.org #mozillazine or #qa before the build comments are posted. I don't see anything particularly useful about maintaining a record of this since things will have changed by the next morning's builds. If someone (mz included) wants to set up and maintain a discussion forum for daily builds I'd be glad to link to it in the Buildbar comments.
