They'll be running it from Saturday October 27th to Sunday November 4th, and they'll have plenty of smart people on hand to help folks learn the bug system, learn how to use the various other web tools, and of course, learn some tips on how to contribute code to the Mozilla effort.

> "nested context menu"

`Never use submenus in shortcut menus; the position in which they appear, relative to the initial position of the pointer, is so unpredictable that it is faster to choose the item from a menu in the main menu bar instead.' <…/ig2h.html#menus-shortcut>

> "we should have a pref for this"

Is that because a non-trivial proportion of the user population would be interested in changing it, or because you're too lazy to work out the most usable choice?

> "but it's 4xp!"

4.x got many things right. The 4xp keyword is still, after all these years, useful as a clue-stick.

> "Apple HIG"

That's the name I used to use mistakenly when referring to the Macintosh HI Guidelines. <…lines/HIGuidelines-2.html>

Did I pass? :-)
