Mozilla Calendar Project Lead Mike Potter Retires, Mostafa Hosseini Named as New Head
Friday July 4th, 2003
Yesterday, Mike Potter retired as the lead of the Mozilla Calendar project. Mostafa Hosseini has now taken over Mike's duties, which include reviewing patches, checking in code, creating new builds and updating the project website. Like Mike, Mostafa works for OEone (the company that launched the Calendar project) and has already written substantial portions of the component's code.
The current plan is to work towards making Calendar into a standalone application, along the lines of Mozilla Firebird and Mozilla Thunderbird. Though the team did discuss moving Calendar to mozdev, they have decided to remain a part of the Mozilla project for now. Encouragingly, there has been interest in Calendar from companies such as Sun Microsystems and Lindows.com.
#1 Interest? What kind of interest?

I'm one of the people working on bug 188660 which is tring to get calendar to hook into calendar servers. Our first attempt is with a Sun CDE Calendar Server (mainly because we had one available at school).
What I'd like to know is just what kind of interest Sun has in the calendar? And why no one mentions these things earlier? We would have loved some help with their Calendar interface. :-)
Yeah, I know we can't release inside information about orgs using/developing mozilla, its just weird to see the big companies magically appear without letting the community know of their plans.
On a different note, Thanks Mike for all the hard work. I'm sure the Calendar will be a working standalone app soon, and I know mostafa can keep it going.
