Towards Mozilla 1.0
Tuesday June 26th, 2001
Gervase Markham recently posted his feelings on what a 1.0 release of Mozilla would be. Gerv has sent us the follow-up to that posting, including much of the feedback he received. To read it, click the full article link. Once you have read through it, we welcome you to post your feelings on what you think a 1.0 release would have. [As Gerv says, please don't post your favorite list of bugs, only the criteria for choosing what bugs to fix.]
#107 All you need is love (and doc)

There are a number of things that need to be there, but none is more important than documentation. If we had some idea of the post 1.0 plans (and perhaps some faith in an ability to deliver on time), some people may be willing to let thier favorite "bug" slide. I personally would let xslt slide if I was reasonably confident that 1.1 would have it and that 1.1 would be out two months after 1.0. If 1.1 won't appear for another 6 months, then I'd say xslt is a 1.0 must. Our company is developing a web client, and we're forced to use ie (much to my dismay). Sticking to deliverables defined 2.5 years ago hardly seems like a good idea.
Having said that, documentation of the system is the most important thing you could accomplish. Who knows, it might just give you the resource to "release fast, release often".
