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.

Is it 5000 bugs, 5000 symptoms, or 5000 reports? Are they all really open, or just not verified to be closed? How many of them are really bugs, and how many are symptoms of not-yet-implemented functionality? How many of the bugs are for marginal plaforms or experimental code?

I'm not even certain 5000 real, open bugs is a large number, given the size and stage of the project, that it is developed in such an open manner, and the variety of platforms supported. The much smaller projects I have been can easily reach 100 open bugs during the pre-alpha stage.

With regard to the increasing number RFE's, thats just a sign of good design. A good design make people think of what else could be done in the current framework.
