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 have open bugs too and a few pet peeve ones I've been watching that still aren't fixed. It used to bother me, but I think once you get involved in a project that has a million open issues you understand more.

I've been working on a web site in my spare time, and on my to do list there dozens of minor details that need fixing but have languished for some time because of more important things, both for the site and in real life.

I'm much more sympathetic to Mozilla developers now and don't worry about every bug not being fixed immediately. I've actually been hoping for 97138 (table sizing) to be fixed for a while now because it impacts something I'm working on, but I understand that it wasn't for so long because it doesn't affect most sites. Just relax and wait for the e-mail updates.

Also, the build comments on this site are a great way to find out what's being fixed in general. Almost daily updates, bug summaries as tooltips, and links to the actual bugs. Much more useful than the Mozilla.org status reports are.
