With all respect for the people working at Mozilla/Thunderbird and fully
understand the limitation they are faced with, I would like to see a
more detailed mission statement for the products (TB/LG) and the future
of it. Only expressing TB is for individual users, SOHO and not for the
Enterprise is a very vague statement. Are there definitions for those
use cases? If they exists follows Mozilla/TB/LG them?
Beside a mission statement how about a road map? Also the projects are
very much living on engagement of contributors and their very personnel
requirements, likings etc such a plan/road map/(what ever you name it)
would make clearer where TB/LG stands and the force go into -- or should
With David coming on board we have seen some plans, very enthusiastic
eg. about the integration of LG with TB.
Did I missed the updates to all of that?
