Full Article Attached 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.]

"That way mozilla.org doesn't ever have to fulfill it's promises."

Which promises? The promise that mozilla.org "to act as the virtual meeting place for the Mozilla code"? These promises:?

* We will provide technical and architectural direction for the project.

* We will collect changes, help authors synchronize their work, and periodically make new source releases which incorporate the best work of the net as a whole.

* We will operate discussion forums (mailing lists, newsgroups, or whatever seems most appropriate.)

* We will coordinate bug lists, keep track of and publicize works in progress, and generally attempt to provide ``roadmaps'' to the code, and to projects based on the code.

* And we will, above all, be flexible and responsive. We realize that if we are not perceived as providing a useful service, we will become irrelevant, and someone else will take our place.

I'm reading and re-reading this list of promises and I just don't see anything about releases. Can you point me to the list of promises mozilla.org made to you?
