Full Article Attached Mail/News Performance Effort Underway

Friday November 2nd, 2001

Seth Spitzer today sent an update out about what the Mail/News team is doing to meet their goals for Mozilla 1.0. They'll be focusing almost 100% of their effort for at least the next two milestones (0.9.7, 0.9.8) on Footprint and Performance of the various parts of Mail, News, and Addressbook. Not only will they be focusing on it, they'll also be locking down their part of the tree and only accepting performance or footprint fixes. Very few exceptions will be made.

There is some amount of independence. For example: Mitchell Baker was fired by AOL but she still runs mozilla.org --- which would be strange if AOL called all the shots. Drivers sometimes reject or postpone requests to land changes desired by Netscape management. New Netscape employees don't get CVS access until they've persuaded at least one non-Netscape person that they deserve it.

It is true that mozilla.org does depend on Netscape an awful lot. But one major reason for that is that Netscape keeps hiring all the non-Netscape contributors! If that stopped, or had never happened, you would see a lot more non-Netscape activity.
