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 did not exempt people who are employed by other organizations to work on Mozilla. I used to manage one such outside paid engineer myself. It was full-time job for him for months to bring up one feature, which the browser desperately needed, and which we thought we would need in 2001 because we believed what we were being told about the release schedule. That's why we paid for it. If it had been left to part-time volunteer labor, it wouldn't have gotten done.
