True. As an additional detail, although I don't know him, I'm remembering that Ben was who fixed the dataloss bug 86501 (time ago) in nsBookmarksService::WriteBookmarks, with a very safe procedure, writing to a temporary file and renaming it only if the write operation succeeded. This can be a good example in order to fix other similar dataloss bugs, like 192425. Thanks, Ben!

And, as said before, that document with TMs is previous to the very new branding of this Friday. Today is weekend. Please give the people time to update documents according to the new branding guidelines.

And relax a little, confusions and mailbombings are in the past, and surely the admins of both OS projects will talk between them. It seems that we can go back to normal life. ;-)
