Friends of the Tree Friends of the Tree

  • Everybody who got mozilla-inbound off the ground, particularly Mounir Lamouri for doing many merges this past week.
  • The Release Engineering team created an unheard of 10 releases in 9 days. Being able to create these builds--many with record turnaround--is a testament to the time and hard work invested into their automation and processes. Additionally, their tolerance for last-minute changes and overall can-do attitude has made Firefox 5 development a lot less stressful for the rest of us
  • ashughes and the entire QA team for qualifying those 10 releases in 9 days.
