Questions, Comments, FYI

  • (self pimping) Christian wrote a tool to scrape input.mozilla.org and make CSVs
    • Please play around with it, lots of insights to be gleaned there, like a "quality index" (feedback ratio for Firefox 7beta/7/7.0.1)
  • Related: input.mozilla.org now supports OR queries ("hang | freeze")
  • Has a decision been made on the possible respin for 8 (LegNeato answered this, decision by eod--depends on the security and cert team)
