I do my best to stay as positive as possible, but I have to make this comment:

What has Mitchell done for Mozilla besides attend meetings and conferences? I have met her in person, but still have no clue about what she has really done. Can someone answer this?

Now, I'm sure Mitchell has done a great job handling with Netscape in the past, but the Netscape-Mozilla relationship is symbiotic. They depend on each other in ways that we now know... so there is probably not much to negotiate anymore. That's probably why she got laid off.

I hope Mitchell can devote some time to plan how Mozilla 1.0 will be distributed. Will there be Mozilla.org binaries? Will it be source-only? Who else might distribute binaries? These are important questions that have yet to be answered.
