A number of people have submitted this article, and while it's not really news, it's just another example of how Mozilla is starting to win people over. This is also beneficial to the evangelism efforts going on.

"Component ownership in ... non-code components is a stewardship that does not (or at least should not) suggest any authority."

Right, it should not, but regularly people get confused. Two or three times a month I go through this conversation:

<mpt> Yeah, I agree with you, unfortunately the module owner disagrees

<randomComplainer> Well, aren't you in charge of the UI Design?

<mpt> No, I'm just a Bugzilla default assignee thing, I can't make anyone do anything.

"If ownership of these Components is misleading"

Ownership of *any* component in Bugzilla is misleading, as I've been saying for the past 18 months. :-)
