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.]

Most of composer is required for the browser to work. IRC is not a requirement for 1.0. As for email, others have already made the point.

People may scream and shout, but mozilla.org's position is clear. Mozilla is not just a browser, it's a framework for building web applications. Lots of people have build lots of stuff, even a web-surfing Communicator-like suite. This is cool, and helps to exercise and test the underlying technologies.

We can't put criteria like this in the 1.0 document. You need to be more specific, and define classes of bugs that you believe should be priorities.
