We’ll want to mess around with it a bit to make sure that all is well and that security is as it should be, but if you’re interested in either working on Performancing Firefox or just checking out the bleeding edge code ahead of general release, we’ll shortly be opening up subversion access to the source code.
The code has always been open source of course, but now we’ll be able to invite people in to actively contribute, and with the next version having support for skins and languages and even plugins of its own, it’ll be a lot of fun.
Jed will continue as lead developer of course, but with the extra help, and the kind of creativity try community development can bring, we should all benefit.
Anyone will be able to checkout the latest code, but those with a desire, and the necessary skills to contribute will be able to add to the codebase directly.
If you’re interested, comment here or drop me an email at [email protected] — we’ll automate adding developer access eventually, but for now its all by hand.
