wow... there were a lot of articles about the Firebird name argument, weren't there? This quote: " published a branding strategy, which stated that the standalone browser and mail projects should be referred to as Mozilla Firebird and Mozilla Thunderbird respectively" is a very selective reading.

The document says: 'When referring to Thunderbird or Firebird before or during the 1.4 release cycle, make sure to use the project name with Mozilla pre-pended as "Mozilla Thunderbird" or "Mozilla Firebird" instead of Mozilla alone or Firebird/Thunderbird alone. ... Use the names "Mozilla Browser" and "Mozilla Mail" to describe the Firebird and Thunderbird projects after the 1.4 release. ... Project names are transitory.'

Just thought I'd note that for the record.

Aside from that, a lot of good stuff has happened. Happy 2004 everyone :)
