Tree Closes Tonight for Mozilla 0.9.9
Tuesday February 19th, 2002
mozilla.org 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. mozilla.org 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.

That's the most rediculous argument I've ever heard Asa. We're not ordering him to fix it. We're saying, "look you should fix it for at least one of these very valid reasons." Now if you could give me several valid reasons why I should send you money, write a poem, and buy a volvo to somehow improve someone's perception of a product I'm supposed to be advocating, then so be it, I probably would. It all boils down to this, Mozillazine is the foremost in mozilla advocacy and news, if Mozillazine doesn't render properly in mozilla then it makes mozilla and Mozillazine both look bad. The absurd workaround to make the site render properly is to use the IE stylesheet why in god's name would I use mozilla over IE when the workaround is to use an IE stylesheet that works in both. My proposed fix for this mess is to just use the IE stylesheet for the entire site and get rid of all the problems. So to recap, Asa your argument is bunk, You're losing users every day by not fixing it, and the fix is as simple as changing two lines of html.
