SeaMonkey project areas
The project areas list describes who can review which part of the
SeaMonkey code base.
Bugzilla components list gets derived from it.
It's similar in purpose to the
Mozilla Module Owners
list, and the
Ownership document applies as far as possible, esp. its "Criteria for
Module Ownership" section.
Additionally, SeaMonkey code reviews need
to be done by area owners or peers listed in this document.
The list is managed by the SeaMonkey Council; contact us with any comments or suggestions for changes.
Note that only the owner of an area (or its parent area) or the SeaMonkey Council can decide on changes for a specific area. So if you want to get on the list as a peer, contact the owner. If you want to own an area, contact either the parent area's owner (if there is one) or the SeaMonkey Council.
If the table is too wide for your little screen, try a widescreen high-resolution one. :)
