Drivers Update

Friday March 29th, 2002

The mozilla.org Status Reports was updated, and included some information on what drivers@mozilla.org are up to, and what's coming up:

"drivers@mozilla.org approved checkins for over 240 bugs this last week. We've taken a few more big-ticket items and have a couple to go. drivers will be ramping down this next week and actively soliciting fixes that we need to branch and have a Release Candidate 1 sometime (hopefully) late next week. We need to get RC1 out there quickly and get feedback on all the changes we've taken since 0.9.9 and at the same time we need the release to stand up so that users will put enough hours on it to give meaningful feedback. Please help us to get the builds into good shape over this next week with particular attention to recent regressions and topcrash+ bugs."

>>I think Asa would even agree that whilst they're for testing, when they say something is bug-free, it should be...

I'm not sure I understand but since it had my name in it I think I'll respond. Mozilla 1.0 is not going to be bug-free. I have never in my life used a piece of software that is bug-free and I'm sure it will spark a debate but I'd put forth the suggestion that there are no such thing as bug-free software products, at least none of any utility. Mozilla 1.0 will have bugs. If I said at any time that Mozilla 1.0 would have no bugs then I was probably really, really, really drunk or being sarcastic.
