Reading blogs is fun, but staff meeting minutes is definitely the preferred way of keeping track of mozilla developments.

> mscott and chofmann hired last Monday. Hey that's really great! I like these meeting notes very much, compact and clear information.

Can anyone tell me what is meant by "not 501c3 yet"?

501c3 is apparently something to do with being a non-profit organisation.

"issued discussed" should be "issues discussed". I only point this out because the error is being carried forward from each MZ article about Mozilla minutes...

Ximian GNOME provides bug-buddy hooked up to all of its applications. If they crash, it generates a backtrace and walks them through reporting the bug. Very similar to what FullCircle Talkback does. It's available at:

The problem is Mozilla also works on Windows and Mac and in fact most of its downloads are on a Win32 platform, will this also work on these platforms?

Actually, as I understand the discussion on n.p.m.seamonkey, the main problem with bug buddy is that it requires extra information to be included in the excecutable, which corresponds to a significant increase in the download size.
