eWeek Reports on New Mozilla Roadmap

Wednesday April 30th, 2003

Peter Lairo wrote in to tell us that eWeek has a report about the new Mozilla Development Roadmap. The article, which is mostly accurate, outlines the changes proposed in the new plan and evaluates their likely effects. eWeek describes the new strategy as "overwhelmingly positive" but does express concern that the stronger module ownership model could slow down innovation.

That's not actually true, at least as far as I know. The front end of composer is basically a tiny piece of code that does composer-oly stuff, whilst the backend of composer is shared between everything else (mail for composition, browser for text areas, particually Midas stuff, and so on). That's why you can't install the browser without composer. Somewhere there's a bug in bugzilla that suggests making composer an optional install, but it's never happened because the composer stuff doesn't really have an existence of it's own.

Of course, someone might correct me on this.
