So now we know it! You're producing Firefox just for Mitchell! ;-)

To be serious, congrats for that system, it also worked really well on a
computer for shared use at our student home. I'm looking forward to the
point when we'll be able to use it for SeaMonkey :)

Will there be a Mozilla 1.7.13 along with it, and will that be the last
Mozilla suite release?

Is a real Mozilla developer meeting planned some time as well?
It would be nice to know of such plans long enough before it happens, as
e.g. I would perhaps travel over to California from over here (Europe)
and I guess other people might be willing to travel bigger distances as
well to join such a big meeting :)
