Happy Fifth Birthday to mozilla.org
Sunday February 23rd, 2003
Five years ago today, Netscape Communications Corporation announced the creation of mozilla.org, with a mission to "promote, foster and guide open dialog and development of Netscape's client source code." Describing the new organization as "a focal point for developers who are interested in modifying and redistributing Netscape client source," Netscape also announced the launch of the mozilla.org site, designed to "provide a central point of contact and community by encouraging developers to download the client source code, post their enhancements, take part in newsgroup discussions, and obtain and share Communicator-related information with Netscape and others in the Internet community." The Netscape Communicator client source code was released a little over a month later, on Tuesday 31st March 1998.

from the <http://wp.netscape.com/ne…ef/pr/newsrelease577.html> "As a follow-on to Netscape’s recent announcement to make the first developer release of Communicator 5.0 source code available for free, mozilla.org will act as a focal point for developers who are interested in modifying and redistributing Netscape client source"
when developer realized that a complete rewrite of the browser suite was necessary are they any newgroup threads, white papers, ect about that? it would be cool to follow dev discussion about this topic.
