Mozilla 1.0 Definition

Tuesday October 16th, 2001

Brendan Eich, mozilla.org's Technical Bigshot, today posted what mozilla.org believes are the criteria to release a 1.0 milestone. The posting outlines exactly what Mozilla 1.0 is (and isn't), how mozilla.org plans to get there, and what the timeline to get to 1.0 is. Also, it explains why a 1.0 release is needed, and why it's not just another milestone.

Well no matter how small the individual contributions would be they would end up adding up to a significant amount of money. And as the top mozilla people can ultimatly set the date they want, it wouldn't be fair at all. Now what sounds like more fun is to compile a list of bugs for 1.0 and have a bug fix race, and have the developer who did the most work win a prize, I would be willing to invest into that pot, definatly. Though how to define work might be difficult, total number of bugs fixed would be an easy measure, but not nessesarly the most accurate, so unless we want to go around assinging point values on bugs based on difficulty, just have total bugs fixed woudl be easiest.
