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.

Because all the people involved have day jobs (thus reducing the amount of time they can spend on the stupid naming issue), and the final names were still being debated when Asa made his "Firebird" announcement (why this announcement could not be held off until the final names were decided is beyond me).
