Classic Mac OS Build Likely to be Retired and Removed from Tree
Thursday January 9th, 2003
We've previously reported that the Classic Mac OS build of Mozilla is transitioning to port status but now it looks like the build could be removed from the tree altogether. In a posting to netscape.public.mozilla.seamonkey, Asa Dotzler has announced that no maintainer for the Mac Classic port has been found. If nobody steps forward by next Wednesday, the Classic Mac OS build will be removed from CVS.
In related news, mozilla.org is also moving the Mac OS X nightly and milestone builds from FizzillaCFM to FizzillaMach. This change will reap several performance benefits and will also make the builds easier to maintain. It is hoped that this transition will be complete in time for the release of Mozilla 1.3.
#12 Big loss for me.

I am a regular user of Moz on Mac--mostly because it's far and away the best avilable browser on 0S 9 (IMO). I also use Moz mail. (This is a company computer). Outlook is not allowed, so Netscape 4.0 is company standard!
There are a lot of Mac folks who are going to stick to that OS for awhile--because corporate isn't ready, administration (read school) isn't ready or simply because they don't want to upgrade their OS.
OSX is still pretty darn young and I think this is pretty shameful.
