"you accuse me of." hey never wanted to get personal, sorry if i left this impression.

I'm maybe not so often like you in the talkback (but i'm reading mz daily) but it's simply fell into my eyes that after the annocement of "1.3a is out" there is a huge thread "More Bloat" in the talkback. Maybe I'm just missing the "Hey that's great release", "Cool Feature", ... posts which normaly are present at Mozillazine when a new release is out.

That's a alpha release of 1.3. The mozilla roadmap wants exact this cycle that new features are introduced in the alpha release.

I'm coding too (no not mozilla), and I know that bug tracking is 100 times more boring than implementing of new features. And since mozilla is a open source project I can not 'demand' from coders to drop all the fun things. Yes I am aware of how important stability is

Mozilla is not only about creating rocksolid application it want's to gain the momentum of open source volunteer.

And yes one can start now a reply about "most of them are aol employee anyway"
