This will may entail a few phone conversations, and we will assist where possible (especially in those cases where we have contacts). If you're interested, please send mail to blake AT cs DOT stanford DOT edu telling me a little bit about yourself and your background (if relevant). If you're fluent in languages other than English, please also mention that, as we definitely want a few non-English speakers on the team to help us capture international magazines. Thanks everyone!"

As a matter of fact, companies do exactly that. Look e.g. at how many different editions there are of Microsoft Office. You can also look at car manufacturers where the platform strategy - offering a variety of models that are based on the same technical platform - is the norm nowadays. In terms of software, that would be versioning.

I am very hard pressed to think of a company that offers just one product. I do understand that the Mozilla foundation only has limited resources, but I honestly don't see where a coexistence of the Suite and Firefox would hurt.
