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.

Her leadership is titular only, and part of the fiction of independence. Remember Gerv complaining last week that the Mozilla leadership were being called on the carpet every week to justify to netscape management why they should keep the project open source? that tells you what the actual reporting structure is.

I'd need to see examples and documentation.

That's a weird claim. Basis?
