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 accept your argument that the masses at large don't have much use for this, but consider this: Many technically-adept persons do want this feature, and it is among those persons that Mozilla is most likely to achieve some penetration into the market first. Those people are the ones who will advocate it to other, less technically-adept persons. I was speaking to someone just the other day, for instance, who said that he doesn't have any use for Mozilla mail until PGP is implemented. The bug is one of the dependencies in the tracking bug "Bugs that make Mozilla advocacy harder," and rightly so.
