Reflect reality. Update general description of mozilla.org. Update list of people.
OS: Mac System 8.5 → other
I'd like to know, if mozilla.org is a legal entity and how members are determined. If being an employee of Netscape is no requirement, the page should reflect that, too.
As of 10/28, page needs: 1. Update of Dawn's description 2. Apostrophes changed to proper format for Unix
Very good. The new page is much more "open". But I still don't know, how members are elected.
I just read the old page again and I like the new one even more :-). The involvement of Netscape could maybe go into a FAQ (I guess, Pat Gunn will like to include it in his FAQ) or to NS servers?
Don't quite understand this last comment. Do you mean that more info re netscape involvement should be included? We've been trying to reflect the fact that Netscape is one contributor of many, so I'm not sure we ought to focus much on Netscape.
Mitchell, I completely agree with you. That's one of the reasons, why I like the new page. But I think, many people will be interested in the Netscape-Mozilla relation. Since www.mozilla.org is in theory not the right place to explain that, such questions could go into a FAQ. Please tell me, if I'm still to unclear.
To make it clear: I don't want to change the page. (Well, there's one thing: I would substitute "and a successful open-source product" with "products" (note: plural)).
Understand about the Netscape relationship; people are often confused. You're probably right that this should be addressed somewhere, though I too am not quite sure where.
Mitchell, if you want the term "Netscape" to go away from www.mozilla.org (for which you would have my full support), you might want to take a look at "Our Mission" <URL:http://www.mozilla.org/mission.html>. (Just a hint.)

I cleaned this up, alphabetized people and checked it in. I removed the "mozilla.community" header because that would have made two headers in a row. ("who we are" followed by "mozilla.community")
Netscape-Mozilla-Relationship: We could create a page like either "Get It" or "Who uses Mozilla" (similar to <URL:http://www.openbsd.org/users.html>), which lists products (both commercial and open source), which use Mozilla code and are representional (good use of code etc.). But maybe it's too early for that at the moment.
I've thought about having a list of people using the code. Agree we might be a little early. We're learning that for big companies there's a difference between developers working with the code, and making formal announcements from the corporate PR level. So waiting a while might make this easier.
for some open source conference mitchell did make a list of who is using mozilla's code...
