Please do not edit schedule dates unless you are a project driver

These dates are supposed to reflect the schedule decided, rather than being predictions of when releases might happen. Each time these dates are changed, discussions are sparked off in various forums about the new schedule. They should be left to reflect the "official" schedule, even if that is clearly out of date. When the information is out of date, people can see that it is out of date, which is better than people believing that a new schedule has been decided when it hasn't. --Michaell 03:57, 1 October 2010 (PDT)

ordinal numerals in release dates

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calendar_date#Expressing_dates_in_spoken_English says ordinal numerals (aka december 1st vs. decemer 1) etc are also proper english form to express dates in the english language. when i grew up and learned the english language, we have learned to write the numerals. i wonder why people keep forgetting them, or why some dudes make an explicit edit of this releases page just to get rid of my ordinal. wikipedia edit wars anyone?

The answer to this question

This page browsing people from different countries, who may not understand the meaning of a particular end of the word. This is table, and please, do not be offended (If I offended you) --Tro 12:13, 2 December 2009 (UTC)

Use ISO dates instead?

The other option would be of course to use YYYY-MM-DD dates instead, which are standardized by ISO and also used by bugzilla as locale-independent representation. Anyway, not a big deal, except that the archived release listing are inconsistent in providing also the year in the date. --Rsx11m 14:42, 2 December 2009 (UTC) - BTW: MediaWiki is using "day month year" for its time stamps ...

Gecko versions

Please indicate the Gecko version for each release so that viewers can correlate releases of Firefox, Thunderbird, SeaMonkey, etc.

Page updates

Who is responsible to update this page? Because the recent released Firefox versions still marked as being scheduled for release in April, and this is not the first time this happening. If this page is obsolete, can you please link it to a better source? Thanks. Tomer 02:00, 26 March 2011 (PDT)
