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.

"The same usual self-important, egotistic tone."

Look at it this way: How else would you know that this anonymous person was really a Mozilla developer? :-)

Unfortunately, nobody else seems willing to pickup the ball and develop Moz -- I know I'm not -- so I guess we have to live with the tone until someone does. I'll agree it does seem a bit detrimental to the project and pointless.
