I don't want to be too negative, but this project doesn't merit being on Mozillazine (at least not yet).

So far the documentation produced consists of 3 paragraphs, which give a rough overview of the current releases of Mozilla, Firebird and Camino. You can find it at <http://sourceforge.net/tr…e_id=59882&aid=795676>

"I have heard from some Windows users that 1.4 does not install correctly. If that occurs you may want to try 1.5 alpha if you are comfortable with an alpha release."

"Firebird split off of the Mozilla organization in the Fall of 2002, so it has become fairly refined. Initially it was only developed for Windows and Linux. Recently the Mozilla Foundation has wanted to integrate Firebird components into the main Mozilla product instead of the Application Suite."

That kind of thing doesn't really belong in a manual. Of course, the great thing about Mozilla and the internet is that people can put up whatever they like, but I don't see this project is going to produce much more than another short doc covering a few basics for new users, and we do have quite a few of those already.
