We had more than a quarter million downloads for
M13 binaries and more than 22K downloads of
the source. Are that many people really building

Thanks to Dawn's assistance, I had moved all submitted language packs,
localized builds, and localization tools to http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/l10n/.
This shall take down the size of files on Mozilla's documents server
and also improve the visibility of our localization contribution.
The directory structure looks like this:
http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/l10n/ --> top directory
glossaries/ --> contains all 4.x glossary files
lang/ --> contains all localized builds/lang-packs
m8/ ... m14/
tools/ --> contains all localization/leveraging tools
All future submission will be pushed to the appropriated directories.
Feel free to let me know if you have access problem.

Brian Ryner (email@example.com) has accepted our offer to work on XPToolkit
for an internship this summer! You already know Brian from such mozilla
contributions as wheel-button mouse support, and the Finger protocol.
We recently landed some of the crypto code onto the M14 branch. In
particular, we landed stuff like the HTTPS protocol hander, and the
PSM client libraries (see the PKI page for more info on PSM: http://www.mozilla.org/projects/security/pki/). This
landing will make it possible for people to use PSM with Mozilla daily
builds in addition to the Milestone builds.
We're not landing PSM source just yet, though we are working our way
toward that goal. See the FAQ for more details: (http://www.mozilla.org/crypto-faq.html#1-2). Also,
we are trying to build an XPI file so that you can quickly add the PSM
binary to Mozilla with one or two mouse clicks. As soon as it works
at all, we'll publish a page with instructions and ask for help
This past week we released a version of PSM which
works with Mozilla's M14 branch. Now you can shop with Mozilla! See this
page for more info.
After Netscape branched for Beta, Pav migrated all our changes to the
trunk. PSM should work with our nightly builds starting in the
next day or so.
bugs last week
We're making great progress getting rid of the beta stoppers
UI meeting finishing up with Password Manager, with help from Steve Morse

be much nicer for beta2.
