I'd like to know what that's about, but it's off-topic for
desktop-architects. I know that hundreds of contributors successfully
contribute to Mozilla every year, that the same code review and CVS access
rules apply to all Mozilla contributors (including Mozilla employees), and
that twice we landed nascent Qt ports in CVS and later removed them because
they weren't maintained.

Hopefully things are going in the right direction but there are still a lot
of problems, all very familiar to the people on this list so I won't repeat
them :-).

"He was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are
healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his
own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all." [Isaiah
