It's been a long and intense week since mozilla.org announced that the Phoenix browser has been renamed Firebird, to the dismay of much of the Firebird database community. In this interview with MozillaZine, Ann Harrison, an administrator of the Firebird database project and a partner in IBPhoenix, gives her thoughts on the dispute.

"Excuse me, Ann, you're looking in the wrong forums. Look here: (LINK) "

OK three or four people are being silly - Ann apologised for that, and I am quite happy to apologise as well.

I posted my eMail address so that people who are anoyed with me could mail me and tell me so. I've had one reply so far and that was curtious.

I am informed that Firebird is simply a codename and will be dropped as soon as it is integrated into the Mozilla project, and I can live with that, as long as mozillazine drops the impression that it is a stand alone product. If this is not the case, then the information I am being given is incorrect, but it has come from mozilla.org, so I tend to believe it. I still object to Asa's atitude that he did not know and does not thing there is a problem. He was well aware of the problem last November/December, and just choses to have selective memory.
