Most of them are for work on Thunderbird/Firebird, but if the fixes also apply to the Suite then so much the better."


#1 Mark Shuttleworth Offerring Bounties to Mozilla De

The bounties are (currently?) for three bugs: 1.a. File e-mails in subfolders via keyboard (no mouse needed) b. Autofill folderlist (similar to "To:" field in message compose) 2. Bayesian filter to suggest most likely target folders. 3. Show error pages instead of dialogs for network errors (bug 28586).

It seems 2 and 1.b are related. The presented folderlist could look like this:

[ work ] <-- entry field +---------------------+ | most likely match 1 | <-- bayesian matches | most likely match 2 | (even if no letters are entered?) | most likely match 3 | <-- limited list length (to three)? |---------------------| | direct match 1 | <-- e.g., work | direct match 2 | <-- e.g., work clients | direct match 3 | <-- e.g., work clients marketing | ... | +---------------------+

PS. I wonder if Mark would be willing to "fund" other needed bugs...

Thank you Mark for offering to make this very generous contribution to Mozilla. :-D
