I'd say the naming thing itself is pretty unofficial, just something the watchers and developers did to keep track of it all. I doubt there was anything as serious as offical coding standards written to describe the codenaming of Mozilla.org projects.

But....

If there was a standard for naming modern Mozilla.org projects it would be to name them after models of cars. Firebird, Thunderbird, Camino, they're all models of cars. I think it's fitting in a way, after all Mozilla.org is engineering a product.

Just for the record...

Is this *bird naming pattern a Mozilla guideline or a project by project thing?
If it is the latter, I'd go with some composer name: Mozart.

great suggestion, i love it :)


Actually in another thread some people recommended Stravinsky, another composer. And for a cool reason too, check it out:

Why so? I'd like to hear opinions?

This may be a fruitless discussion though since DeltaGuy has been pushing greatly for Snowbird.

But I'd still like to hear your opinions.

I did a quick search on newsgroups and found this:
<a href="http://groups.google.com/groups?hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&threadm=19990114053635.25390.00000455%40ng39.aol.com&rnum=1&prev=/groups%3Fhl%3Den%26lr%3D%26ie%3DISO-8859-1%26q%3D%2522cars%2Bwith%2Bbird%2Bnames%2522%26sa%3DN%26tab%3Dwg">cars with bird names</a>

A quick list of cars with bird names:
American Bantam
Buick Skylark
Eagle Talon
Ford Falcon (and T-bird, I guess)
Hupmobile Skylark
<b>Pontiac Firebird
Pontiac Phoenix
Pontiac Sunbird</b>
SS (Swallow Sidecars, predecessor of Jaguar)
Studebaker Hawk & Lark
Buick Skyhawk (Chevy Monza clone)
Nissan Bluebird (home-market Nissan)
Packard Hawk (the Stude-bodied Packard)
Willys Aero-Eagle hardtop (1952-54)

I've gotta say I think the name Talon from the Eagle Talon would be pretty fitting for the "means to an end" possition that the composer is in.

mozart: a great composer
moz: short for mozilla
art: website art
rolls off the tounge better than Stravinsky
Tenuous links: Stage for Soprano, "Bella mia fiamma" "Attractive my flame" Nov. 3, 1787

in conclusion create great works of art in mozilla composer :cool:

plus if its used i wont have to build my own with MozArt replacing whatever other name might be used :wink:

Hmmmm, Blackbird? Or maybe Compzilla? Maybe even Composer SE (SE stands for Standalone Edtion).
Or maybe Stratus?

Here in Minnesota, a "snowbird" IS a car...covered with snow and ignored. The snow plow operators don't care much for them. Truth be known, I'm not too crazy about the whole "bird" thing either.
