One moment, fixing dependencies ... (Bugzilla won't let me do this in one step)
No longer blocks: 34549
... there we go. Much better.
Depends on: 34549
4.5 evaluation: <http://www.xs4all.nl/~js/gnksa/Evaluations/netscape-communicator-4.5.txt>
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: <http://www.newsreaders.com/john/m15.html> 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.
Nomination for mozilla 1.0.
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 newsreaders.com, AFAICT.
I assume you mean my unfinished evaluation of m15 at, <http://www.newsreaders.com/john/m15.html>, 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 But it's way out of date, and according to the docs my computer is no longer supported (not too surprising given the speed when I did the evaluation).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.
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. pi
Depends on: 37088
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.
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 pi
Summary: GNKSA tracking bug → GNKSA tracking bug (except for must-fix GNKSA bugs)
Whiteboard: Only add dependencies which do not fit into bug 76449.
