Trunk Frozen for Mozilla 1.5 Alpha
Wednesday July 9th, 2003
At midnight Pacific Daylight Time during the night between Tuesday and Wednesday, the main Mozilla development trunk froze in preparation for the release of Mozilla 1.5 Alpha. While the tree is frozen, all checkins to the trunk require approval from email@example.com or they will not be allowed to land. The freeze is expected to last for a few days and the trunk will be reopened when Mozilla 1.5 Alpha is released. Note that 1.5a will be a Mozilla Application Suite release as Mozilla Firebird and Mozilla Thunderbird are not yet ready to become the default applications. See the Roadmap for more details about milestone schedules and future development plans.
Well the idea was that it might happen during the 1.5 cycle. however, given that it hasn't happened yet, that's not looking likely, so I guess it will be some time in 1.6.
It seems drivers have decided to stick to the date schedule, rather than holding things up for the component switch around, so there's no definite plan for which release will have the switch - all depends how the work goes.
As for the GRE, the idea is that they will all share a single GRE. That may or may not happen initially - again, depends how things go.
