Firebird Database Project Admin Apologises to mozilla.org for Mailbombing

Saturday April 26th, 2003

In an update to an earlier article, IBPhoenix is reporting that Ann Harrison of the Firebird database project has apologised to mozilla.org Staff for "problems a mailbombing may have caused". The apology was made at the request of the Debian project's Jonathan Walther, who has offered to mediate in the dispute. The article also reports that the Firebird Admins and the FirebirdSQL Foundation are trying to open a more formal channel of communication with mozilla.org.

Over? Not a chance. It will be over when you respect Firebird as a legitimate trademark belonging to someone else.

The attitude of a minority of Mozilla members seems to be "we've stolen it fair and square; get used to it" resonates rather poorly in the rest of the software world.

If it's going to be called Mozilla Browser after its release, why not do yourselves and the world a favor and call it Mozilla Browser now?
