Full Article Attached 0.9.2 Branch and Beyond

Sunday June 24th, 2001

Chris Blizzard has posted an update on current tree management plans for the 0.9.2 branch and the 0.9.3 trunk. The plan calls for mozilla.org to drop the requirement of drivers@mozilla.org approval for check ins to the trunk, while continuing it till 0.9.2 is finished on the branch. Chris felt that using 0.9.2 as a stability milestone was a success, partly thanks to the drivers requirement, but mostly due to better self policing by those who were checking in.

When 0.9.2 is completed on the branch, Netscape will take over control of it, and continue checking into it for an upcoming release. The build Netscape chooses to release will also be released by mozilla.org as 0.9.2.1.

Finally, Chris stressed the importance of continued self policing, to keep up the high level of stability that the past 2 weeks have achieved. To read his entire post, click the Full Article link.

Okay this is all very simple, academic, and a somewhat stupid argument. So let's try to explain why Mangelo is wrong simply.

1) Before 0.9.1 there were bugs in Mozilla targetted for 0.9.1, 0.9.2, 0.9.3, 1.0 and future. 2) Before 0.9.2 there are bugs in Mozilla targetted for 0.9.2, 0.9.3, 1.0 and future. 3) After 0.9.2 there will be bugs in Mozilla targetted for 0.9.3, (0.9.4, probably), 1.0 and future.

Look! Between 1 and 2 and between 2 and 3 a whole set of bugs have been fixed. Why? Because when considering how many bugs a milestone has we don't look at the bugs targetted for that milestone, we look at the bugs targetted for that milestone *and beyond*.

Sure, that gives 0.9.2 *MORE* bugs that Mangelo suggests there are, but it also shows that there are fewer bugs in the milestone than the one before.
