    So, the concern about lack of developers and testers might be over...?

  4. Hmm the article was poorly worded.

    Reverse course? That was the plan for a long while already.

    Meneer, concern about lack of developers or testers? You referring to firefox ?

    Firefox's problem isn't the lack of developers or testers, it's the failure of the core 'peer' group to review patches on a timely based and more importantly their failure to invite others to join them as reviewers.

    There are a lot of patches submitted but very few are being reivewed by the 6 who have the power to do so. Which discourages everyone.

    One of the biggest problems with peer support for FF is the organization of the support forums. I gave up on them fairly quickly when I found that quite typically I'd see 4 to 6 pages of new topics in the main help forum in only a couple of hours.

    I still love FF, of course (I'm a recent convert), but at this point I'm sticking to trial-and-error plus watching for updates.
