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.

Casey, don't misquote me. I said "A few hundred votes says something, and I happen to pay pretty close attention to bugs with lots of votes, but it doesn't say as much as you seem to suggest." Nowhere in that statement do I suggest that 227 votes doesn't mean anything. I specifically said that is does mean something and that it means something to me. What it means is that a very small minority of of bugzilla bug reporters and commenters care more about that one issue than they do about other issues and took the time to note that concern with a vote (and probably a comment). If all of mozilla's major bugs were fixed and I had the time to implement a new feature, had the ability to implement features and had no particular itch to scratch I would probably implement PGP. Unfortunately I don't have the time or the ability to implement Mozilla features. What I can do is try to focus resources where they are most needed and right now that certainly isn't working on new features. PGP would certainly make some number of people happy but I'd wager that more people using Mozilla and Mozilla-based browsers care about silly bugs like 59108 than about PGP.
