Submission + - Should The MPL 2 be GPL-Compatible?->

Gerv writes: The Mozilla Public License is currently being updated from version 1.1 to version 2. MPL 1.1 is not compatible with (any version of) the GPL without multiple licensing. I am trying to find out what projects currently using the MPL 1.1 think about whether MPL 2 should be automatically GPL-compatible or not, so hackers can use their code in GPLed projects.

If your project uses the MPL or a derivative, read my blog post, have a chat about it on your mailing list and let me know. I'm also making a list of projects using the MPL and a list of GPLed projects using MPLed libraries — do add your project if you fall into one of those categories!

(Note: this survey is just a survey — it's not official or binding on the MPL 2 drafting team.)

Submission + - Worldwide Firefox 3 Release Parties->

Gerv writes: "The Mozilla project's Party Tool is now up and running, arrange Firefox 3 release/Mozilla 10th Anniversary parties all around the world at some point this month. The map shows parties in your area; if there isn't one, start one. :-) There are 255 at the moment; for Firefox 2 there were 648 parties with 5754 registered partygoers. So some way to go to beat that..."
