Tree Closes for Mozilla 0.9.6

Wednesday November 7th, 2001

mozilla.org today closed the tree in preparation for the branching of the 0.9.6 Milestone later this week. As usual, drivers@mozilla.org will work towards a Friday branch and a release on the following Friday. Check-ins to the tree will be moderated by the Drivers until the branch happens.

UPDATE!: mozilla.org branched for 0.9.6 on Friday, and the trunk has reopened for 0.9.7. Expect to start seeing branch builds sometime this weekend, or on monday.

I got the following message in my Inbox today. Like all the best pieces of spam, it came twice:

Hello,

I visited <http://www.mozillazine.org> and I noticed that you are not listed on some search engines. I am sure you can increase the number of people who visit <http://www.mozillazine.org> . Do you know TrafficMagnet? TrafficMagnet is a unique technology that instantly submits your web site to over 300,000+ search engines and directories every month. This is a very low-cost and effective way of advertising your site.

To check our prices and submit <http://www.mozillazine.org> to 300,000+ search engines, go to TrafficMagnet.net

I would love to hear from you.

Best Regards, Christine Hall Sales & Marketing <http://www.TrafficMagnet.net>

This was followed by a nice animation of a magnet attached to a minaturised MozillaZine screenshot with lots of people being pulled towards it.

I guess they harvested my address because it's attached to my comments and assumed that any addresses on the site must be owned by someone involved in its administration.

Did anyone else get this message or should I feel special?

Alex
