mozilla1.0.1 is winding down. starting yesterday we started tapering down approvals by minusing requests that don't meet the further restricted criteria. A few weeks ago the following criteria was posted for 1.0.1 checkins.

"To provide more clarification regarding what we're targeting 1.0.1 for... we are generally looking for fixes to _high_ visibility problems, stability improvements (topcrash bugs), & near zero risk polish issues. The scope of 1.0.1 is more narrow than 1.0. Not everything that was declined for 1.0 should be requesting 1.0.1 checkins. Yes, the 1.0 branch is going to be alive for awhile, but, architecture work, feature work, risky changes, edge case work, and the like should be happening in our life blood, the trunk; not the 1.0.1 branch."

Now we're looking for even _higher_ visibility problems. topcrash is topcrash is topcrash. Low risk fixes to topcrash bugs are always strong candidates. We're shooting for nearly full lock down by Monday (the 24th of June), so, if you have bugs you want to include in 1.0.1 (that meet the above, further, narrowed criteria), send them to <drivers@mozilla.org>. We are only fielding bugs that have landed on the trunk and have baked there for at least two days, and that have been verified as resolved on the trunk.

Will there be a 1.0.2? If there's a need, there will be a 1.0.2.
