Mozilla is under a much looser license than the GPL. The license says that if you want you can treat it as if it were GPL, but that there are other options too.

As a result, GPL code in fact _CANNOT_ be put directly into Mozilla. So if the new code is written under the GPL it cannot be contributed to Mozilla.org easily.

Which has no bearing on what glazou plans to do; I'm pretty sure he will attempt to land everything he can in cvs.m.o.
