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.

Do you hang around microsoft sites and complain that the windows 9x kernel could have been really good, if only they hadn't 'spread resourses' by also creating mice and joysticks? Or maybe that Internet Explorer would be really great if only they hadn't been distracted by creating Excel? Or do you accept, in that case, that these projects are entirely unrelated? Because you seem to have a hard time grasping the fact that people can work on different Mozilla based applications without removing any development time from either the browser or the gecko/necko/etc. core.
