Full Article Attached Upcoming Mozilla Tree Plans

Friday June 1st, 2001

Chris Blizzard, a member of the Drivers, has posted an update on what will be happening for the next milestone (0.9.2). Basically, checkins will require Driver approval, along with the normal review and super-review. The milestone will only be two weeks long, and will give the tree a chance to breathe a bit, following a long string of large rewrites. To read the entire message, click the full article link.

Along these same lines, the current milestone, 0.9.1, was branched yesterday, and looks to be quite good. Expect nightly builds of the branch to start today or tomorrow, leading up to the final builds.

Of course IE ships with 67831 known bugs.*

The joy of Mozilla (and open source projects in general) is that anyone can look and see what bugs there are and fix them. I find it really nice to be able to add bugs to Bugzilla and see them get fixed. This kind of openness is a good thing, but allows people to make fun of all the bugs that remain.

I wonder how many of those bugs are RFE? Looks like 42 in 0.9.1-0.9.3 plus 75 more for 1.0 for a total of 117. <http://bugzilla.mozilla.o…se+same+sort+as+last+time>

Just for fun I checked to see how many bugs were just in the Browser (instead of Browser+Mail and News as in the previous article). Answer: 1203 <http://bugzilla.mozilla.o…se+same+sort+as+last+time>

This isn't to downplay the fact that there's still a lot of work to do. Some of those RFE's are things I believe are requirements. Mozilla seems to be making great progress with stability, though. 34 or more topcrash bugs were fixed for 0.9.1!

*Okay, I just made that up. But how do you know how many bugs were there?
