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.

It's not all about checkins. There is massive QA effort by volunteers. Ian Hickson has done a massive amount of work on Mozilla and has checked in hardly any code.

I'm contributing my time and always have, although I'm not actually a student anymore.

OTOH it doesn't worry me in the slightest if most people working on Mozilla are paid to do so.
