Friends of the Tree Friends of the Tree

  • Timothy B. Terriberry nominates Greg Maxwell and Christopher 'Monty' Montgomery for working all weekend and staying up all night last Sunday to get an integer-only Vorbis decoder ready for Fennec b2.
  • Asa would like us all to recognize the years of great desktop support (nearly 5000 bugzilla tickets Resolved Fixed) and the super A/V and AirMozilla support for so many meetings and events that Sean Alamarez has given us. His awesome contributions have made all of us more productive and helped us bridge the geography that would have otherwise divided us and slowed us down. We're going to miss you. Thanks, Sean, and good luck.
