What do you think?

Wednesday October 10th, 2001

Many in the community have been discussing what components nightly builds should include by default. We wanted to find out what you think? Are you happy to see the new Javascript Debugger included in the build? Would you like to see other things shipped, like the DOM Inspector? Or would you rather only see the browser shipped, and make the rest, like Mail/News, Chatzilla, and other components, optional add ons?

I fully agree. The whole point of the nightlies is for testing the latest Moz code, but a lot of people don't want to or can't build Moz.

By not building these components, the components are missing out on a lot of testing and QA.

Maybe the archive versions (tar.gz, zip, etc) could just come with the standard components, but the installers (SEA, net-installer) could offer the compete range of component goodies. Even if you get an archived version without the extra components, you could always just install the XPI for it anyway form the nightly build directories.
