#5 Status of GRE?

Is there any place (newsgroup) I could follow and discuss the development of the GRE?

If the only place is bugzilla (which would be unfortunate), could you tell me a good sort criteria (or even a link)?

It seems that there is a great need to have a GRE-system in place that would allow all mozilla-based standalone applications (firebird, Thunderbird, Sunbird, Editor, ..., Lotus Notes, GameSpy,...?) to access one or only a few GRE's.

My main reason is that I want development of the Calendar and Editor to focus more on the standalone apps (as opposed to XPI hook-ins to the other apps).

Also, I would like to suggest that the *profile names* start being changed to what the applications will be called:

- MozillaBrowser - MozillamailNews - MozillaEditor - MozillaCalendar - MozillaIRC

There needs to be coherency, recognizability (for ease-of-hacking) and brand-recognition (yes, even here in the profile name!)
