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.]

I do agree that Mozilla neads better documentation, but that's not always a strong argument for writing a lot of text that has to be translated in a lot of languages. Sometimes, it's much better to change Mozilla in a way that reduces the need for documentation.
In the post 1.0 era that means that it would be nice if people who are making decisions about arcitecure etc. asked themself "Which alternative is the most simple to explain". For the moment it means that it makes sense to concentrate on bugs that complicates documentation.
