The folks over at mozilla.org posted a series of a dozen or so Netscape
employee training videos about the structure and philosophy of the SeaMonkey
project (also incarnated as Netscape 6.0)
More notably is the first volume, Architecture/Design/Coding Principles,
that is presented by Rick Gessner, one of the head engineers who was primary
in the redirection of Netscape's source base to what we now know as Mozilla.
He talks about what it takes to architect a big project like Mozilla and the
pros and cons of several design methods. He gives and excellent talk and
highlights what seem to be several great books that are immediately relevant
to our task at hand.
Personally, I'd like to see our OHS/DKR built on top of mozilla. A great
deal of the groundwork is there which allows us to focus on more important
aspects like design philosophy, standards and connectivity. And I bet that
many in the mozilla community would be very interested in our work and in
Just a few thoughts to munch on.
