Full Article Attached Mozilla Bug Week

Monday October 22nd, 2001

Many of you are familiar with the Bug Day's that we started a few years ago. Well, with the number of people wanting to help out skyrocketing these last few months, gerv@mozilla.org and others have decided that a bug week was in order. 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.

Indeed. I've been trying to make this happen, but it's like hitting a brick wall. If you know of some other company happy to provide us with a news server, let me know.

> Bah. Most of the messiness of Mozilla's UI is Netscape's fault. :-)

Not that sort of UI mess, I mean the UI process mess. Speaking frankly for a moment, one of the reasons given for Mitchell's laying off is that she was unable to solve the "UI problem" - the conflict between Netscape's UI team and Netscape's engineers and Mozilla UI people. The seriousness of this conflict was escalated in the eyes of management because certain people kept sending Netscape upper management email complaining about the current situation!

> The 1.0 meta-bug dependency tree (LINK) currently leaves me with nothing to do.

That, you twit, is because I have twice emailed you in the past week asking you to nominate bugs for the UI section, and you haven't done so!
