Trunk Freezes for Mozilla 1.7 Beta at Midnight Pacific Standard Time Tonight

In a newsgroup message about the Mozilla 1.7 Beta freeze, Asa Dotzler writes: "Yep, we're there again. The Mozilla 1.7 Beta freeze happens this Tuesday night at midnight. Beta is last-chance for changes that impact localizations so get those string changing fixes and features landed ASAP or let know if you're going to have trouble getting them in before Beta.

#23 How about this "bug"????

I am not going to quible with you about "should be" versus what you now say is "would be nice" as it is not going to happen in either event.

I remain concerned about the management of the Moz et al project as it seems, to me, to be without focus or clear objectives. The "bug" I referenced (in my view it is not actually a "bug", but a missing feature/capability) has been dragging on for a very long time. The voting system seems an unlikely management tool for things that need to be done.

While I like Moz in many ways, it has yet to improve upon the capabilities/features of IE (yes, I know that there are many technical problems with IE) which is a shame as I would have hoped that the purpose of the entire project would have been to make a browser that is, simply put, better. IE remains my "default" browser because of these shortcomings although I normally browse in Moz.
