Does Google to finance a gaggle of flacks to push it's agenda?

If so where do I sign up?


The author is against it, why? Perhaps s/he sees this change as a diversion from its [Firefox's] self inflicted drive towards extinction.

Quoting:So now Mozilla has officially embraced a plan for an Enterprise release version of Firefox dubbed Extended Release Support (ESR).

Shouldn't that be ERS? The other question that came to mind is ... would Eric S. Raymond be proud?

No, but "Extended Release Support" should have been "Extended Support Release" according to this article

Quoting:As such, Mozilla has now come up with a proposal for what they refer to as an Extended Support Release (ESR). Instead of the current six week cycle, the ESR release of Firefox will be maintained for 42 weeks.

His argument seems to be that it already exists in RHEL. So? Not every business Linux deployment is Red Hat, as much as some folks here in Raleigh would like it to be. I really don't see any reason to criticize Mozilla for this move. Quite the contrary: it's most welcome.
