Tree Branches for Mozilla 1.7

Wednesday April 14th, 2004

On Monday, the new Mozilla 1.7 branch was cut from the trunk, in preparation for the final release of Mozilla 1.7 in mid-May. As well as 1.7, the branch will also provide the foundation for Mozilla Firefox 1.0 and several other Mozilla-based applications. Post-1.7, the new branch will replace 1.4 as the stable development baseline. Checkins to the branch require approval from drivers@mozilla.org — the trunk, meanwhile, is now open for 1.8 Alpha development work. Consult tinderbox for the latest tree status.

Jesse, this is not about mozilla having security holes, this is also not about a specific bug number, because there are more security related issues in mozilla still left unfixed. You of all should know that! You even filed some of them, a long time ago. I also filed one a long time ago, but none of them have been fixed (I am talking about bugs that go back as far as 2000/2001). Also, I don't think I have to tell you the bug numbers, because you can easily look for them in bugzilla.

So my first question is: "Are you saying that there are no security related bugs left unfixed in current builds?"

However, there is one specific bug number that I would like to see fixed for mozilla 1.7. This is bug 235457 and that bug was introduced with the patch for bug 198846, but I can't find Christopher Aillon's 'Make 'CAPS not lie bug' but that should be there somewhere...

My second question is: "Do you agree that this November 2003 document should be updated?".
