Active bug list: October 20, 1999
This bug is designed to depend on all the bugs that were reported by Netscape engineers during the weekly status report. I wanted a list of the top 1 or 2 bugs per engineer, as taken from the assigned bug (and feature) list. Over time, we can look at this bug, and see if we are progressing on the stated high-priority bugs (bugs that folks thought they should be working on). We can also contrast this list with a list that management has created and thinks folks should be working on (Dogfood bugs, approved by PDT+). In the end, we'll see what should be done to either list, and to our joint priorities.

Here's a funny story: Once upon a time there was a lowly engineer who was asked to identify the two bugs he would be working on the next week. The poor engineer didn't have any urgent bugs and he suspected he'd be working on whatever crises emerged day-to-day (as had been the case for the preceding weeks). So, he examined his bug list, searching for bugs that he could pass off as "top bugs." He found 1 reasonable candidate, but the rest were random minor defects that might or might not need fixing ever, let alone during the next week. What to do? The engineer decided to pick the lamest, most inane bug from the list, and nominate *that* bug as one of his "top two", just for fun. Lo and behold, he now receives an email notice that another bug had been made dependent on that lame, inane bug! He followed the link to see what measly defect might actually have sunk to such depths to be dependent on this lamest-of-the-lame bug. That's how I got here. Fortunately, said engineer had marked that bug FIXED the day before, so choosing that bug may have been fortuitous. Anyway, I was somewhat amused by this turn of events and wanted to share it with y'all. Have a nice day.
15576 is a bug about build warnings. You must have the wrong bug. I am taking it off the list.
Removed 16036, which was in weekly status because it was found, not because it was being worked on.
