Small m on - it's a domain. Possibly a comma after "play with".

"discussing confirming"? :-| How about "discussing whether to confirm"?

Is anyone working on this at all?

"Bug 16009" needs brackets.

That seems like an unwarranted slur. What security holes?

That last sentence makes no sense. The Mozilla project has no "LDAP 
configuration"; we don't use LDAP. Mozilla::LDAP is a generic Perl LDAP 
module like Net::LDAP; it just doesn't seem to be maintained any more.

Buglists are now available as JavaScript structures as well as HTML and 
RDF. This allows things like the "update buglinks" bookmarklet:
which updates the status of all the buglinks in a page to have the 
correct strikeout/tooltip etc.

This <a href> is improperly closed, meaning it runs on for the rest of 
the paragraph.

Which file did this change? The sidebar? It seems like a Mozilla change.
