Is the score identical for both 4.5 and Seamonkey??

Is anyone willing to help fix some of these dependent bugs?
Steve, I'm sure, it's not identical, but I guess, the evaluation will look
similar - some problems fixed, but some new problems :-(.

Maybe, it would be good to do a "preview evaluation" by ourseves (i.e. look over
the requirements to see, if we fail in new places), if we care. Maybe I'll do it
some time, when I'm in the right mood.

I'm working on 35158 (fixed in my tree) and 9202 (mostly fixed in my tree) and
indirectly on 6276.
> Maybe, it would be good to do a "preview evaluation" by ourseves

I just noticed, John did the 4.5 evaluation. He would propably the right guy to
do it, then.
I'll do a full evaluation latter, but for now...

Followup-To and Reply-To no longer shown by default.

Followup-To: poster -- is addressed to the "newsgroup" poster.

When I changed that to the newsgroup I was using for testing,

and posted the message, the content-type said plain/text but

the body was HTML (this despite my having to answer a dialog

asking if I wanted HTML).  More latter

Ok, finished enough for the moment.  I haven't submitted it, but
I've put it up at: <> for
the moment.

Some points -- there isn't a command for Reply Via Email, so I've
failed it on 8a and 8b.   I didn't test it for server load, it was so slow
I doubt if I could have got it to even attempt a second action before it
completed the last.

Did someone just change this to "fixed"?  If so why?
> Did someone just change this to "fixed"?  If so why?

No, a depending bug (#71121) was changed to 'fixed'. You can turn of e-mail 
notification of related (depending/blocking) bugs onthe BugZilla e-mail 
preferences page.

John Moreno's evaluation is no longer available on, AFAICT.
I assume you mean my  unfinished evaluation of m15 at, 
<>, I changed the directory 
name and didn't provide any links.  Sorry about that, I've fixed it.

But it's way out of date, and according to the docs my computer is no 
longer supported (not too surprising given the speed when I did the 
evaluation).  And at least some of the failures in that version have been 
fixed in later versions.

Should bug #95623 take the place of #17796 in this bug's dependency list? 17796 
is listed as blocking only because it could be used to fulfill the GNKSA 
section 2 requirements. The subject of 17796 (dual menubuttons for replying, 
forwarding etc.) is not itself a GNKSA issue.
Depends on: 73403
This bug is not OS dependend. Please someone set OS=ALL

Adding bug 37088 (Trailing whitespace when folding QP encoded headers) to
dependency, this one is for GNKSA requirement 5 b) (Preserves entire original
Subject), adding additional white space destroys the original Subject.

Scott, over to you for safe keeping :-)

Hows about adding the 'meta' keyword and setting target milestone to Mozilla 1.0 ?
Also, should this be nsDogFood or nsCatFood ?
unfortunately, the chance that this will get in before 1.0 is next to 0. Today
is feature deadline, I think.

Removing dupes:
Bug 4567 is a dupe of bug 73403 which is already in the list.
Bug 17124 is a dupe of bug 13767 which is fixed (so I don't add it).
Bug 34549 is a dupe of bug 6276 which is already in the list.

Should we also remove other resolved bugs?

No longer depends on: 4567, 17124, 34549
I discussed with Jonas that it would be better to have the dependencies for this
bug an bug 76449 (Must-fix GNKSA bugs) non-overlapping. This will enhance the
overview. Changing summary etc. to make this clear. Of course, bug 76449 blocks
this here.

Removing bugs listed in bug 76449:
Bug 3744, bug 3745, bug 3746, bug 17796, bug 35338, bug 66150, bug 95623, bug 169614
