I don't know what to say except I can't do everything myself.

I always felt "contributing" was a shared experience, not a one man job.

I would assume others would help and contribute fixes as you have mentioned.

To me the issue of Netscape is not what is an issue here.

The issue is an individual asking help from a open and collaborative
community and getting shot down in the dark.

Whether Netscape or others can view something is not a big deal with some
testing and changes I'm sure it can.

This sort of testing would be done with others participating, that is the
hope and purpose of group development and collaboration, is it not?


A one man job is not like no job I've ever known.
