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.

This is open source. As a result this is not really a 'choice' their making, but simply the fact that no volunteer has come forward to maintain it. If you have the time - step up and be the maintainer!
