In defaults/pref/all.js there is a note that the default of 'news.mozilla.org' needs to be changed to 'news' once the beta ends. So this is a reminder to do that. The note is by, or to, 'sspitzer' but I don't know his email to add him as a CC.
Ring Ring....... Seth, Ben, has this been done, or is it still in neeed of being done? and what exactly does this refer to? NS7 or Moz1.0? Moz1.0 is almost out the door, so whichever it is, this should be looked at. confirming since this seems to be known anyway....
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
Nominating for mozilla 1.0.1 and for the netscape (adt) release. If this bug is determined to be invalid, at least remove the reminder message in the prefs file, and close this bug.
pls have this reviewed by the Nav triage team, attach a patch, and get r/sr= before nominating for checkin to the 1.0 branch. thanks! removing adt1.0.1

Does this need to be fixed? sspitzer? You added this, isn't it time to remove it and change the default nntp_server back to just news?
Change default nntp_sever to just 'news' instead of news.mozilla.org.
Guessing here because the pref is never used :-)
Severity: normal → trivial
Summary: pref network.hosts.nntp_server needs to be changed (reminder) → pref network.hosts.nntp_server needs to be removed
Comment on attachment 109665 [details] [diff] [review] Patch to remove old text. This is an unused pref to IMHO the correct fix is to remote the pref completely and also the line in nsNntpService.cpp that refers to it.
sorry for the spam. making bugzilla reflect reality as I'm not working on these bugs. filter on FOOBARCHEESE to remove these in bulk.

If this pref is no longer appropriate, is there a need for a different implementation of default news server? FWIW this was wontfixed in bug 8053 - perhaps for reasons that are no longer relevant.
