Peter Torr’s blog post on signing Mozilla binaries (Firefox, primarily) was a good article. Most people will flame it, but his argument holds some water. I respect his opinions and recognize the validity of his statements, especially considering his follow-up post, which responded to many of his Slashdot readers.
Overall, this is good stuff, it helps Mozilla become stronger in the long run and gives us additional motivation (there was already plenty) to “do the right thing”.
In the coming weeks we will be working on increasing the security of Bouncer in its coming version (v2.0) in addition to many other features (versioning, languages, statistics, statistical exports).
More to come, folks, doing the right thing takes time, and sometimes a little bit of pressure and criticism.
