Because they get paid, that's why

Someone sent me feedback yesterday, and I've seen similar questions in the forums, asking why the product cycles are much longer for Camino versus FireFox. The answer really is very simple.

There are a group of people who are paid non-trivial sums of money to develop, QA, and release FireFox and Seamonkey. Camino developers, myself included, are doing this work free of charge, in our spare time, simply because it's the right thing to do.

Any questions?
