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.

Wow, this thread has keep me occupied for a while =) hehe. Nice to see to intelligent people discuss something civilized.

As both of you have many points that I agree with, and other that I don't, I do lean towards roc's point of view. Basically volenteers and paid coders are both KEY elements to Open Source development, this is why Microsoft cringes with the words O.S (no, I do not want to explain, nor prove my point with facts, text and etc., pefer to "waste" my time doing other things.. hehe sorry)..

Secondly, over the last 6 months, reading comments by Strauss, he seems to be very negative and un-objective (in no way am I dissing Strauss, You rock man.. but it's just my point of view).

Anyhow.. I truly enjoyed this thread, thank you!
