During the freeze, which will remain in place until 1.6a is released, all trunk checkins will require approval from drivers@mozilla.org before landing. Read Asa Dotzler's newsgroup posting for information about the checkin approval process during the freeze.

I don't like the idea of a Mozilla 1.x and 2.x. This could provide some confusion. Version numbers are normally used to differenciate different versions of the same product, but that isn't the case here. Your run-of-the-mill end user might think that 2.x is just the next version of 1.x, so they either won't download 2.x because they don't like 1.x, or they'll download 2.x and not like it because it doesn't include a HTML editor, but won't download 1.x (which has an editor) because they won't realize that 1.x is a different product.

Just my 2 cents.
