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.

"Why do I suspect they will not?"

Maybe because Brendan is not an idiot.

Maybe because Brendan does not throw in idiotic "statistics" about an increasing bug count.

Maybe because Brendan is suggesting a realistic time line.

Maybe because Brendan is not saying that the 1.0 milestone is going to come too late.

Maybe because Brendan's post is laid out as a logical, organized document that presents the issues in a positive manner and lays out a plan of action to address those issues.

Maybe because Brendan does not insult the developers who are working on Mozilla.

I am sureI could list a lot more possible reasons, but I just got a call about a database problem that I have to take care of immediately. So catch you later.
