Get site admins to stop assuming !=128bit SSL means <128bit SSL Mozilla uses 256bit SSL and can't access https://www.mymerchantoffice.com/ unless you disable 256bit SSL.

A quick search on this one reveals it's a problem in a few places. Should this all be consolidated into 1 bug?

No - each site that has this poor code needs to be fixed separately by different site owners. If there was going to be a fix on the Mozilla side (e.g. by dropping support for 256bit encryption) which would resolve all the sites, then it would be a single bug.

shouldn't there be some negiotation between browser & site, then Mozilla would fall back on 128-bit ?

nevermind, I just checked the URL, it's really a server bug as certificate uses 256bit but somehow, server never thought some browser would actually use it and it chokes on it.

The Pinstripe Theme landed "tomorrow" (it has already landed). That's what the minutes mean.

#9 Roadmap

Will they discuss the roadmap and the mythical update at a future meeting? They said early 2004; we're now in Q2, and still nothing!

#10 The Minutes

I don't know..... The way this all looks, and the way it's panned out, thus far, is that we might not have any "actual" releases, of stable products, until mid-may (which I don't see a actually stable until mid-june, or july). I do like the proposed way of going about testing, release candidates, and such. They are doing great, with the development. I don't have any complaints, and I would like to see what Netscape is going to do, with the new browser. I liked 7.1, and cant wait to see what new features are in 7.3, or 8.0 (whatever they're going to number it). Keep up the great work, with this site, it is very informative, and I have learned a lot, since joining less than 30 minutes ago.
