RedHat to Invest in Mozilla

Monday November 29th, 1999

Gerbil writes, "Our 'beloved' ZDnet has another Mozilla-related article, and it's actually positive this time! It states that Red Hat plans on investing money and resources in Mozilla. After all, Red Hat does use a version of Bugzilla for their bug tracking. Very interesting."

We'd be remiss if we didn't mention Chris Blizzard of RedHat, whose contributions to the Mozilla project have been invaluable.


#18 or how to fix 5000 bugs in 10 days

Yes, the buglist keeps growing because new features are still being implemented. After feature freeze expect a steady downhill slope for the bug counts. But... expect a jump up during the early months of beta release.

The statistics have shown that while preparing for a milestone, 2.5 bugs have been resolved per day per developer. If that rate could be kept, fixing 5000 bugs with 200 people would take 10 days! That is not realistic, though, because resolving bugs for milestones also meant moving some of them to later milestones. Still, it shows that 5000 open bugs is not a catastrophe.
