Reporting and Nominating Bugs for Mozilla Firefox 1.0

Thursday April 29th, 2004

Ben Goodger writes: "We're beginning the drive to Firefox 1.0 and we need to make sure that every bug people think is important is filed in Bugzilla and has a blocking0.9? or blocking1.0? request flag set. 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 don't think he meant it that way. The way I see it, basically he's saying: Thanks to a strong lead and the ability to say "NO", Firefox is what it is today. I (ben in this case) am currently the project lead, so it's my responsibility do keep Firefox lean/mean and a major browsing machine. If you don't like it, tough luck, I'm open to suggestions and appreciate any contributions, but if in the end I don'y think it should happen, I'm not bending over and implementing everything YOU think would make Firefox great."

This kind of stance is what is needed and I don't see hyow this is "without humility" or "regard for others opinions". Could he have expressed himself in a better way? Sure, but I'd like to see you having to read-respond to all this crap everyday of the year.
