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.

That depends on what you mean by "professional". The GNU system is widely used to run mission-critical computers, because it just doesn't crash. *BSD doesn't crash either. Php is a far smaller security risk than ASP. And so on. None of those things are even vaugely "nice" to use, but they have quality of a sort.

You don't *need* corporate backing. But it does help.
