Description

19 years ago
I pulled SeaMonkeyAll via CVS on January 27ish 2000.
The mozilla/README/mozilla/unix-details.html document does not list
the amount of harddisk space needed for a build in its 'requirements' list.
The document points to an updated version of unix-details.html at
http://www.mozilla.org/build/unix-details.html, however the document at this url has the same bug.

This bug can cause someone to accidentally run out of hard disk space during a build, thus making
the build fail with an 'out of disk space' error and causing unknown troubles for other programs running on the same machine.

Note the macintosh, windows, and BeOS build documentation at www.mozilla.org/build do not have this bug.

This is especially true since the build requires over 1GB of space.  I don't
know how much exactly since I don't have enough free space to build it.  The
source itself takes up just under 150MB.

*spam* changing qa contact from nobody@mozilla.org to me (BlakeR1234@aol.com) 
on 121 open or resolved (but not verified) bugs.  sorry for the spam everybody, 
but most of these bugs would just remain dormant and not checked by QA 
otherwise.  I'm not sure how so many bugs have nobody as their QA contact, but 
I suspect this is the fault of some sort of bugzilla corruption that happened 
at some point (most of these bugs are in the 20000-26000 range, and I don't see 
where in the activity log that QA contact explicitly changed to 
nobody@mozilla.org)

Anyways, sorry again for spam.  If you really get annoyed, I'm usually 
available in #mozilla on IRC for torture.

QA assigning Mozilla Developer bugs back to nobody@mozilla.org (not critical to 
be checked by outside QA contact)

accepting QA for mozilla developer docs.

some of these bugs have been around for a _long_ time. Reporters, would you
please review the bugs, see if the issues have been resolved, and close bugs
appropriately.

I will do a full review of all bugs not touched in one week (8th April). 

Thanks.

Remove myself from the 2 open Documentation bugs and assign to default owner for
triage.  Not gonna happen until I get a working browser on OpenBSD.
