What he has done is point out that there is a degree of hypocrisy amongst the mozilla.org \\\"administration.\\\" They (I believe I hear Asa most commonly) have adamantly, time-and-time-again told us that mozilla was just to develop for Netscape (and to a lesser extent, the world), and if you want to use a browser intended for end-user use, use Netscape. That\\\'s why they have no intention of removing the Debug and QA menus and prepare the browser for mass public consumption.
I must say that I almost agree with him. People ARE going to use mozilla 1.0 as the final Heaven-sent browser it is, and they ARE going to judge it in every way even if it wasn\\\'t intended to for true end-user consumption. I would agree that the admins need to pick their route right now. If it really is not for end-users, then this should be a zero fan-fare release (and indeed, perhaps even without a binary). And if it is for end-users, then be do a few more of the little things that users will expect from their browser... because that\\\'s mozilla 1.0 will be: their browser (and mine).
It\\\'s time to put up or shut up. And personally, I\\\'d prefer the latter.
