A lot (all) of our prog-ids are still in the netscape "domain", e.g. "component://netscape/editor/htmleditor". Change all of them to "mozilla".
Is <quote src="http://lxr.mozilla.org/seamonkey/source/netwerk/streamconv/public/nsIStreamConverter.idl#117">#define NS_ISTREAMCONVERTER_KEY "Software/Netscape/streamconv/"</quote> covered by this bug?
this is ridiculous.
Using "netscape" as domain implieis, that the component belongs to NSCP, which is wrong - it belongs to Mozilla. I don't know, why "netscape" ever made it in in this way. (Note, that this bug doesn't necessarily has to be fixed by you.) > this is ridiculous. Can you explain, please?
i think we should come to consensus in n.p.m.xpcom about what progids should look like. news://news.mozilla.org/38F61824.615CF4C2%40netscape.com
As to ridiculous. This bug is ridiculous if the point is the wanton removal of the word "netscape" from the source tree. In the old (?) ProgID scheme, the first part of the path was the vendor that provided the component implementation. In which case, "netscape" is perfectly valid as the contributor of the implementation for a component. If the point of the bug is to fix ProgIDs to some new and better scheme (which, by the way, doesn't mention vendor), then I'd like to 1) hear the merits of the new scheme, and 2) get buy in from people that they'll actually fix the code. Otherwise, we'll just have a messed up mix of old and new ProgIDs that'll be even more confusing than a single broken scheme.
There'S a new bug on this with a lot of discussion.

Chris, Netscape is not the vendor for Mozilla components. Mozilla is the vendor. Netscape is the contributor.
moving from architecture product to Browser. Architecture product is going away.
