Decipher the Code Words

What do you suppose Mozilla means by this? Mozilla says Firefox 3.0 bug-free, launches RC2?

Do they mean:

  • They have only tested enough to find the easy problems and have fixed those that they found.
  • They have not tested at all (the no testing=no defects philosophy).
  • They have reclassified all issues as known issues or have marked them as not reproducible or user error in the defect tracker.
  • They do not believe that it’s an issue if a workaround, however convoluted, exists.
  • They explain that only an experienced QA person would find the issue, so it’s not worth fixing.

Because, frankly, if there aren’t any open issues, you’re not trying hard enough.
