Saturday February 22nd, 2003

Yesterday, the tree was branched in preparation for the final release of Mozilla 1.3. Checkins to the 1.3 branch are being tightly controlled by drivers@mozilla.org. Meanwhile, the trunk has been reopened for 1.4 Alpha development. See the Roadmap for more details and tinderbox for the current status of the 1.3 branch and the trunk. A list of bugs blocking the 1.3 release is also available.


#69 A serious question for this thread

Can I then ask:

*Why* doesn't mozilla.org provide links to the above distributions? I know of about half of them, but surely the reason that no-one uses Beonex is that you have to be really keen to find out about it.

If you/they are so keen to get people onto end-user distributions, the least you could do is move the Mozilla download *off the main page*. Why not ask people to set up RSS feeds on their site stating their latest news & downloads (yes, even for Netscape!), then amalgamate those into a 'downloads' page.

It's then the responsibility of those sites to maintain their download information, and Mozilla's doing its bit to ensure that the Mozilla community knows about all the great work people are doing with Mozilla.
