  • How do we organize so many Spanish localizations. How to make it easy for users to know differences between localizations. Do we need just a es-Latin American and just modified search engines? (Only one localization, and then have a country option like ubuntu installation process?)
  • How can we collaborate to localize more add-ons?
  • How can we have more Spanish documentation about the process of creation of add-ons and projects code (like Firefox, Thunderbird, etc.)
  • Can we have a Mozilla Store with shipping process for Latin America?

Jornadas Regionales de Software Libre (JRSL)


One of the newer open source and free software conferences in the Spanish speaking community, expecting 1500-3000 attendees in 2009. The conference is run by Chilean open source community organizations, one of which being Firefox Chile.  We will be there to improve visibility of Mozilla Hispano in the Open Source Community and try to recruit conference attendees to the project.

The event this year will be divided into three topics:

  • Society - On the Society axis we’ll talk about the Free Software as a social phenomenon: this is, as a cultural product that is made, distributed and used by people on a social environment.
  • Technical - On the Technical axis, we’ll speak about the Free Software such as a scientific research object or as in technical implementations.
  • Enterprises - On the Enterprises axis, we’ll speak about the Free Software used on enterprises, succesful cases, business models based on FLOSS solutions, promotion and sales, etc.


Registration is free.  Your name is already in the system and you can pick up your badge on Wednesday, October 7th when JRSL starts.


Three day conference with 2 Mozilla keynotes (by chofmann and seth), 4 Mozilla talks.  The tracks are:

  • Técnica
  • Sociedad y Educación
  • Otras
  • Empresa
  • Talleres

To see the different activities of this congress please visit the JRSL Programa:


This year the JRSL will be realized in Santiago de Chile, at Santiago Sur campus of INACAP, Vicuña Mackenna 3684 (Metro Line 5, Camino Agrícola station). More information here (including a Google Map). Once you reach the campus there will be signs for where JRSL will be taking place.
