Full Article Attached OEone Scales Back Calendar Development

Wednesday March 19th, 2003

Mike Potter, who leads the development of Mozilla Calendar, has posted a newsgroup message about the project's status to netscape.public.mozilla.calendar. Most of the current work on Calendar is funded by OEone, who utilise its code in their HomeBase Desktop application. However, a change of priorities at OEone means that Calendar will not be receiving the same level of development attention as in the past. While work on the project will not stop altogether, the rate of progress is likely to be slower than that seen previously.

None of the calendar engineers are Netscape employees. I fail to see how Netscape has anything to do with whether or not Mozilla should have a calendar project. Netscape doesn't pay calendar developers. They don't QA the calendar. They don't distribute the calendar. They don't support the calendar. Most of Netscape probably don't even know that it exists. Your concerns about calendar impacting Netscape are confused at best.
