Developers Must Now Consider Mozilla Firebird, Mozilla Thunderbird and Camino When Making API Changes
Thursday January 22nd, 2004
In a newsgroup posting, Mozilla Firebird developer Ben Goodger, Mozilla Thunderbird developer Scott MacGregor and Camino developer Mike Pinkerton have announced that those making API changes to core components must now ensure that they do not adversely affect Firebird, Thunderbird or Camino. For most developers, this will mean monitoring the three applications' tinderbox pages to ensure that their checkins do not cause breakages, as well as searching a little further afield when looking for code affected by API changes. If a developer fails to follow these new rules, they will be required to fix any problems they cause or have their code forcibly backed out.

Remember the old days of Netscape where we had the dual-tinderbox page showing both the commercial AND the public T'box ? I would recommend making a special page allowing to see with one URL access only the status of the 4 tinderbox Mozilla, Firebird, Thunderbird and Camino. It will save a lot of time, will help people checking the tinderboxes. Can only be positive imho...
