Tree Closes Tonight for Mozilla 0.9.9

Tuesday February 19th, 2002 will begin the process to release Mozilla 0.9.9 tonight at 11:59 pm pacific by closing the tree to free checkins. Mozilla 0.9.9 is the last major milestone prior to 1.0, and includes numerous bugfixes in composer, history, and other areas. Along with this, likely new features that will be in the milestone include a new full screen window mode, set image as wallpaper, and composer publishing.

Following the tree close tonight, expect up to a week of tree closure for stability and regression fixes, then a branch to be cut some time next week. As soon as the branch is cut, the trunk will reopen for Mozilla 1.0 checkins. is shooting for a March 1st release date, but due to this being the last milestone before 1.0, and because there is a large amount of code that will be landed tonight prior to tree close, delays may occur.

The reasoning for higher duplication goes like this: Most of the triage eyeballs are on "unconfirmed" and "new" bugs. Once a bug has been moved beyond that point, they belong to individual developers and thus duplicates are less likely to be noticed. Many eyes do make short work but only when they are focused in the area.

Bug numbers are only junk when you try to use them without any investigation.

The fact that bugs are "reopened" does not mean they regressed.

Having a bug marked "WORKSFORME" and then "REOPENED" may simply mean that the problem report was poorly written in the first place or that the problem was reported as being all when it was really platform specific or just that the problem is intermittent <> <> .

Having a bug marked "DUPLICATE" and the "REOPENED" may simply be a mistake or because of a decision to split a bug up into pieces <>

Having a bug marked "FIXED" and then "REOPENED" may just be due to a bug in the operating environment outside the measure of Mozilla <>
