Further Updates on Firebird Naming Debate

Friday April 25th, 2003

Jonathan Walther of the Debian project has published a transcript of an interview with an anonymous Mozilla developer about the Firebird naming conflict. According to IBPhoenix, which is affiliated with the Firebird database project, Walther has offered to mediate in the dispute. IBPhoenix have also published their own update on the situation, apparently written by project administrator Ann Harrison.

If it is okay to steal another group's name (as long as we call it a code name) then Mozilla.org should return to calling its project Phoenix. If this is not the case then the claim that Firebird is only used as a codename is just propaganda to strenghten Mozilla.org's position in its attempt to rape the Firebird database project.
