Full Article Attached Mozilla Bug Week

Monday October 22nd, 2001

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.

Please, give us the benefit of your accumulated wisdom.

> a more schedule-driven approach

You don't think "We want 0.9.10 to be Mozilla 1.0; if we have to slip one milestone, so be it, but not more than one" isn't schedule-driven?

> a heightened level of professional accountability

What exactly is that? It's an empty snipe.

> reduction of the open bug count

How exactly do you suggest we speed up this process? Engineers are working as hard as they can. Suggestions as to how to prevent 50% of the new bugs filed per day ending up as dupes within a week would be particularly welcome.

> and a renewed focus on aesthetics at the level current consumers expect

I haven't seen you breaking out Patch Maker and submitting UI patches. :-)
