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.

You are replying to this message

"belonging to someone else"? Are you referring to Firebird BBS? Or Firebird toolkit (viracocha.sourceforge.net)?

Jim, can you please respond to <http://www.mozillazine.or…rums/viewtopic.php?t=9983> or ask your wife to? I'm interested in hearing how the steps mozilla.org took:

- Come up with a new name. - Ask lawyers if they can defend the usage of it. - Stick with it if the lawyers say "Yes."

is different from the steps you and your wife took when deciding to use InterBase:

- Come up with a new name. - Ask lawyers if they can defend the usage of it. - Stick with it if the lawyers say "Yes."

Thanks.
