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.

You write the spec first and then implement. And we have working backend implementations for S/MIME (PSM) just as we have for PGP (GnuPG).

No, they didn\\\'t! Neither did the PSM folks.

Just to have it rejected *again*? I have better things to do.

They did, and all they faced was opposition by the Mailonews owners.
