OReillynet.com has an article about participating in Mozilla: "
Since its inception more than two years ago, the Mozilla project has been highly
praised and much discussed as an example of the collaborative possibilities of
the open source software movement. Thousands of programmers, would-be
programmers, and interested technical types discuss the Mozilla project and the
philosophy surrounding it. But the process for actually contributing source code
appears complex and intimidating to those not involved in the project, and
non-Netscape developers contributing their work to Mozilla remain a minority."
