Silver's Simple Site - Weblog - 2006 - January - 07


Contributor Relations

The Mozilla Foundation are really trying my patience with two issues right now:

  • No tinderbox graphs.
  • No despot (user accounts thing).

In both cases, the relevant pages have simply been blocked, returning error 403 or 500 and no information whatsoever has been provided. The closest I got was after filing a bug for the first one, where I got a comment from one admin of "That's on purpose. The script has issues.". The only information on the Despot issue is "security" - fat lot of good that is!

I'm am going to assume that both things are currently exploitable, which means that they should be fixing them, which they do not appear to be doing. If they know they can't fix them fast (or don't care), as appears to be the case, where's the bloody message saying so? It's absolutely appalling.
