Myk Melez has been working with Mozilla since 1999, when he started using the browser as a DHTML application platform. In 2000 he wrote ForumZilla, a weblog reader, and since 2001 he has been working as a webtools hacker for mozilla.org. He was responsible for numerous improvements to Bugzilla including its enhanced attachment handling and code-review request features, and he wrote Doctor, a web interface for updating mozilla.org's CVS-based web site. Lately he's been experimenting with XUL interfaces to web applications, f.e. Bugzilla duplicates report, Bugxula, and tinderstatus.
