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, firstname.lastname@example.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.
From the Releases page: "We make binary versions of of Mozilla available for testing purposes only!. We provide no end user support. If you use our binaries, we strongly encourage you to participate in the various mailing lists and newsgroups hosted by mozilla.org. Please report any bugs you find to bugzilla! That, of course, is the whole reason we make these binaries available."
From the Getting Involved with mozilla.org page that is the default home page for Mozilla: "Congratulations! You've downloaded a Mozilla build. This means that you've volunteered to become part of the Mozilla testing community. Great! Welcome aboard. Helping out won't take much of your time, doesn't require special skills, and will help improve Mozilla."
Joe Consumer doesn't want to "get involved" or report bugs, so it's better for him to use Netscape, Galeon, or one of the other browsers based on Mozilla.
And, of course, the place to report bugs is in Bugzilla, not here! ;-)
