Status Update Page Gets an Update

Thursday October 3rd, 2002

The Status Update page has been maintained by Tim Rowley for the past couple of years (he took over from Christopher Blizzard who took over from MozillaZine founder Chris Nelson). Recently, the number of updates contributed by developers has been falling so Tim has decided to try something new. Instead of relying solely on contributions, the new-look Status Update page will include Tim's own summary of what's been happening in the land of Mozilla. Check out the latest Status Update to see it for yourself.

#5 We need to step up.

The community (in other words, us), needs to step up on this one. Since Asa has stopped doing the build bar comments, and now the status updates have been cut down, we can't sit there and let Tor do all the work by himself.

I think if we combine the same information from the Build bar forum with the official status reports then something even better can come from it. Right now (for example), I have all the developer blogs linked from mozillazine, which I read regulary. They have some great information. Then I comb the build bar forums, the posts on the frontpage, mozillanews, and blogzilla, to get all my mozilla information.

All of these news are updated regularly on all these sites, I think it would benefit the community greatly if it were combined to become the 'official' status report. Surely we can come up with a way of making submitting to a status report as easy to a developer as a blog entry. Combined with a few people combing the latest checkins, the latest blog entries, and all the mozilla fan sites out there (with proper links for credit), we could have one kickass consolidated report that is updated regularly.
