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.

I appreciate the information. However, I don\'t see how you have arrived at your conclusions. There\'s nothing at <…ing-cvs-write-access.html> that says Netscape employees have to get non-Netscape employees to give them write access. It may sometimes be that one of the approval requests goes outside Netscape, but the way you said it, it sounded like it was required to. And I don\'t see how Netscape-requested fixes getting into the Netscape 6.x branch before the main Mozilla trunk demonstrates that Mozilla people have turned down fixes requested by Netscape -- why would Netscape managers care if the fix got checked into the main trunk if all they\'re doing is prepping for a new 6.x release? Nobody has overridden anyone from Netscape there.
