<p class=MsoNormal style='mso-layout-grid-align:none;text-autospace:none'><span
style='font-size:14.0pt;font-family:Times-Roman;mso-bidi-font-family:Times-Roman'>The
communication methods used in development of this project were face-to-face,
e-mail, instant messanging, and over the telephone.<span
style='mso-spacerun:yes'>  </span>We used instant messanger and the telephone
mainly for small details such as Mozilla related questions or other dumb
questions.<span style='mso-spacerun:yes'>  </span>E-mails and in-person
meetings were used mainly for status updates and assigning the next steps to
the individual group members.<span style='mso-spacerun:yes'>  </span>These
methods worked well for our three person group, however would most likely not
scale well to larger groups.<span style='mso-spacerun:yes'>  </span>That would
likely require e-mail lists.<o:p></o:p></span></p>

<p class=MsoNormal style='mso-layout-grid-align:none;text-autospace:none'><span
style='font-size:14.0pt;font-family:Times-Roman;mso-bidi-font-family:Times-Roman'><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></span></p>

<p class=MsoNormal style='mso-layout-grid-align:none;text-autospace:none'><span
style='font-size:14.0pt;font-family:Times-Roman;mso-bidi-font-family:Times-Roman'>We
used CVS to maintain our code and ensure that each person was working with
eachothers latest versions of their part of the project.<span
style='mso-spacerun:yes'>  </span>It seems this may have been overkill for our
small group, but would be very necessary for a larger group.<span
style='mso-spacerun:yes'>  </span><o:p></o:p></span></p>

<p class=MsoNormal style='mso-layout-grid-align:none;text-autospace:none'><span

<p class=MsoNormal style='mso-layout-grid-align:none;text-autospace:none'><span
style='font-size:14.0pt;font-family:Times-Roman;mso-bidi-font-family:Times-Roman'>Each
member of our group had a part of the project that was somewhat separate from
the other parts.<span style='mso-spacerun:yes'>  </span>For this reason, any
bugs that were found could be directed to the person who wrote that part of the
project.<span style='mso-spacerun:yes'>  </span>And since our group was as
small as it was, it was easy enough to just mention the bug to the appropriate
group member.<span style='mso-spacerun:yes'>  </span>This made it unnecessary
for us to utilize bugzilla.<span style='mso-spacerun:yes'>  </span>Again,
bugzilla would make development much easier on a larger scale.<o:p></o:p></span></p>
