$2,000+ Offered to First Person to Port Mozilla to Amiga OS

Wednesday May 21st, 2003

Several people wrote in to tell us that DiscreetFX has started a fund for the first person to port Mozilla to Amiga OS. An initial contribution of $2,000 has been provided by DiscreetFX's CEO, Bill Panagouleas, and donations are welcome from other individuals and groups. To get the bounty, all a programmer/team has to do is get either the browser portion of the Mozilla Application Suite or Mozilla Firebird up and running on the Amiga, even in beta form. At the time of writing, the fund stands at $2,667.

>are offering $2000 to the lucky coder(s) that can send us even a beta of this browser for Amiga OS. You don't have to port the e-mail package or some of the other tools, just the browser portion of Mozilla.

What do they mean by "beta"? Does it have to have any functionality beyond being able to be opened? Does it have to use only internal libraries or can it use 3rd party packages? A little more info on the rules before coder x burns the midnight oil only to find that his version does not meet the minimum requirements.
