Mozilla Branches for 1.5

Wednesday September 10th, 2003

A short time ago, a branch was cut for the forthcoming Mozilla 1.5 milestone and the trunk opened for 1.6 checkins. To ensure stability, checkins to the branch require approval from drivers@mozilla.org. The Mozilla 1.5 Tinderbox shows the latest branch status, while the SeaMonkey Tinderbox provides a similar service for the trunk. See the Mozilla Development Roadmap for more about trees, trunks and branches.

I'd thought it was made clear by the roadmap and subsequent discussion here.

Seamonkey won't be replaced until Firebird is mature enough to replace it. Until Firebird is mature enough, development will continue in both. Work done on Seamonkey is often picked up by Firebird, so Seamonkey development translates into Firebird development anyway. The roadmap, and discussion here, originally called for a *gradual* move to Firebird during the 1.5 - 1.7 cycles. There were also no absolute statements as to deadlines or guarantees as there are so many variables that have to be dealt with at each step.
