Clearing Up Mozilla's Status

Friday July 2nd, 1999

David Polberger has some good news from people who were dismayed by comments from Alan Baratz of Sun regarding Mozilla's future.

David writes, "... just posted this news item to its main page [click the link to read the full text of the comment]:

"...Our contributors and staff are responsible for the management of all browser development. As a major contributor, AOL completely supports our efforts... We would like to stress that Sun was not speaking for or for AOL."

This is good news. I got the impression that Alan B. was speaking for himself more than any official position. Anyway, I thought that Sun was only responsible for Netscape's server efforts, not their client efforts...

This was certainly a case of 'mainstream press gets it wrong again'. The same day the story broke last week, i saw ESR at a lecture in Autin, and he was very quick to dispell and doom and gloom rumors. He also made is clear that the Mozilla project has already had great success insuring that open standards on the Web remain open.
