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.

"What "FACTS" did I, or anyone else, alledgedly flame him about?"

Well, among other things, the ones that I just mentioned in my post. How added features risk stability and use up resources. There was a lot of flaming over that, along the lines of "You idiot! This is an open source project. The guys who wrote X and Y were not Mozilla (as in.. "internal") developers. They were just volunteers.". strauss gave the exact same arguments as Brendan now did for WHY even outside volunteer implemented new features are high risk and resource eating at this stage yet when strauss laid them out, he was flamed and ridiculed. That's just one example. There are plenty of others - in particular the whole "why 1.0 matters" debate.

"strauss's posts are annoying and frustrating because they are insulting and/or illogical and/or just plain wrong"

Care to point us to some of those "insulting and/or illogical and/or just plain wrong" posts of his? How about some of the "garbage" of his that you mention?
