"Mike Shaver, a Canadian who bore the whimsical title 'international incident,' headed developer relations and open source evangelism for Mozilla.org, the AOL-sponsored group shepherding the open source development of the Communicator Web browser, acquired last year along with Netscape Communications. Shaver also was involved with product architecture and some coding work."

"Shaver succeeded Mozilla founder and open source advocate Jamie Zawinski, who resigned on the eve of Mozilla's first anniversary in April last year.

Zawinski left Mozilla expressing frustration that after a year of work the project had failed to produce a full-featured, usable browser. Since Zawinski's departure, Mozilla has encountered still more delays, though the project reached a significant milestone with a relatively complete trial version, dubbed 'M12,' last month."

Shaver said his departure should not be seen as a vote of no-confidence for Mozilla. He said one of the conditions for accepting his new job--at a company he would not name--was that he could continue his involvement with Mozilla on a part-time basis."
