[Marketing-Public]feature comparison sheet

One of the most important documents for press and companies that are
looking at Mozilla products is a comparison chart comparing the various
Mozilla products to each other and to other commercial and open source
We've shied away from this because it's a big task keeping up with all
the competitive products, especially since products upgrade so quickly.
What we'd like to do is use a Wiki so that everyone (that means YOU) can
contribute to a big table that's maintained by the community and then
once a quarter (when we do a Mozilla 1.x release, for instance), we
would do a release of the feature comparison chart and post that on the
Mozilla web site.
I'm looking for a volunteer to launch this project and maintain it as
(hopefully) dozens of people start contributing to the wiki. One
starting point is Ben's Firebird comparison page at
http://www.bengoodger.com/mlx9346/compare/. This page is of course
biased towards Firebird, which is fine.
Generally, we're looking to build a document that highlights the
strengths of our various products while being accurate and generally fair.
Some products to include in the table: Mozilla 1.x, Firebird,
Thunderbird, Opera, Safari, IE, Netscape 7.1, Konqueror, Outlook,
Outlook Express, Eudora, Netscape 4.79(?).
Let me know if you're interested in starting this project.
