#1 Two Questions for Those in the Know
Monday July 21st, 2003 10:16 PM
I'd really like some clarifications on FB:
1. "Come from the trunk at the 1.5alpha branch point, so without the big work"
Does this mean FB 0.6.1 is branching, or that for now it is not built on the latest trunk?
2. "It'll take a year to get something shippable to end users (brendan)"
Does this mean the appsuite will go to 1.5?

Dunno; as the Mozilla Firebird developers.

Brendan updated the roadmap recently:
"It's clear now that we will not be able to switch to Mozilla Firebird by the Mozilla 1.5 final milestone. Instead, we expect Mozilla 1.5 to coincide with Mozilla Firebird 0.7. But we intend to implement the new application architecture in the next several milestones, till most of the community is won over to the new apps. We invite your comments, preferably in the mozilla.seamonkey newsgroup."

> Brendan updated the roadmap recently Thanks for pointing this out. I have been reading Mozillazine.org every day for a long time and never saw this big news ont the home site. Is sad to hear that the Thunderbird and Firebird are being delayed. But is not a surprise, beacuse it seems that not all developers thinks that breaking the AppSuite into parts is a good idea.
#2 Machines and FB

> 2. "It'll take a year to get something shippable to end users (brendan)" 1.4 will be the only real end-user product for a ~year
And for those who think that the "machines" line is insignificant, note that that is pretty much 18.104.22.168 through to 22.214.171.124, probably all quad sparc machines. (do a reverse dns and see for yourself).
And the tinderbox'es are quite significant too. Bugzilla doesn't want to be inundated with "compile not working" bugs.
