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.

First, thank you for your suggestion to Ugg. I don't mind disagreement, but I do mind that sort of stuff just a little.

Along the lines of more civil disagreement:

<<When I see a cavalier attitude towards an ever-escalating defect curve in Mozilla it makes me think I'm in for more of the same on the new project.>>

This line leads me to a question, strauss. Forgive me if you've addressed it elsewhere, and just point me there. I've read your commentary of the bug tracking in Mozilla for some time, certaintly through this thread. And it strikes me that you and Asa seem to be talking about 2 different ways of looking at the data. Now, of course, there are "lies, damn lies, and statistics", so anything anyone says can and will be suspect. Yet, I've seen Asa say, in the thread, on 2 occasions I can recall, essentially "You're looking at the Bugzilla data in a way that's far off than what we see in the team. Talk to me, and I'll be happy to explain our view in detail." And, I guess I'm wondering why you've not taken him up on that offer. It seems to me -- and maybe I'm missing vast parts of the picture here -- that, when I have a dispute with someone over rather complex issues, it's useful to understand their side, if only so that I can better shape my discussion.

Sorry to butt in. And thanks for reading.
