I know source tarballs are currently not available. Is it possible to download the Phoenix source via CVS? I'd like to look to help strip out some of the mail/news code to trim down Phoenix.

Of course if a single tarball could be provided, say when 0.5 is released, we could get a lot of eyes looking. Only <a href="http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/buglist.cgi?target_milestone=Phoenix0.5">2 bugs left</a>!

As far as I can tell, the Phoenix source is in the <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/source.html">Mozilla source</a>; I've got a bunch of batch files set up to compile Phoenix from the Mozilla source pulled from CVS. You bascially have to define the environment variable MOZ_PHOENIX before starting the build. (See <a href="http://lxr.mozilla.org/mozilla/source/browser/README.html">Phoenix Readme</a>)

If anybody wants it (and can tell me where to put it), I'll happily upload / post my batch files to build Phoenix from the Mozilla source. Just make sure you know how to get <a href="http://www.cygwin.com/">Cygwin</a> with Perl, and have a copy of Microsoft Visual C++.

(Note: I have it all set to work on Win2k with VC++ 7; should be able to change that to VC6 with something like one line)

oh. I know that if you look at about:config, you see lots of variables that Phoenix doesn't use. They're set somewhere, so I was gonna track that down. I know Phoenix shares code with Mozilla, but I know it's not all of it (ie Bonsai shows certain items being ported). Well, now I know where to start. Thanks.
