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.

"I think there should be a discussion/feedback forum for non-technical users on mozilla and project managers/designers should listen there"

That wouldn't accomplish much. If anything, the forum would be *more* clogged with redundancies than the newsgroup, because more people use the web than use newsgroups. The same people who ignore the newsgroup now would ignore the forum.

Unfortunately there are no easy solutions to the feedback problem. The wishlist group is best at directing new feature ideas towards Bugzilla, and Bugzilla's voting system doesn't accomplish much.

The easiest way to get somebody working on a bug you find important is to either do it yourself or pay someone else to do it.
