Reporting and Nominating Bugs for Mozilla Firefox 1.0

This will allow the FDT (heh) to develop an action plan for the milestones between now and 1.0, prioritize bugs and so on. It's essential that people start doing this now, rather than later, otherwise bugs might slip through the cracks!" Further details are available in Ben's posting to the Firefox forums.
I've read the charter several times, and it's not telling me anything more each time you post it, and yet you keep posting it, assuming that the people writing this stuff havenít read it.
I don't understand how you can still be confused by these opinions, given that you've been reading them over and over again for however many years. They may not have any relationship to what the "market" needs, but that doesn't mean they don't exist.
You asked a community of geeks to point out every bug that "people think is important". Obviously they are going to point out what is important to them. Surely you weren't expecting people to only point out things that are important to your own goals for Firefox?
Posting links to the charter doesnít magically mean everyone will agree that the charter is right, or will change their expectations.
