Axel to work with Adrien on Moz2.
  • Comm Dev
    • Community pack project - Mic/Gandalf -
    • current draft of a potential community oriented [site]

Community pack objectives: Our main objective is to improve our community resources overall by (a) attracting more resources - making it easier for people new to Mozilla to start (b) enabling existing communities to expand and in different areas like testing, translation, marketing, etc. (c) creating more efficiencies in our ecosystem by creating this site for people to react to and provide feedback on others? generally we'd like to avoid falling into the trap of bounding ourselves to this first project and the set of projects we have. We want to think of what a user who never meet with Mozilla project may think, what they are looking for, what project we should offer them, maybe there are more "missing" elements beside those listed.

Approach (1) Validate our first model (http://labs.braniecki.net/mozilla/como/front/) by identifying key stakeholder inside and outside Mozilla to give us input and feedback (expect this will take a few weeks - to June) (2) Discussions with stakeholders to: (more weeks, June to July)

    • Gather a set of requirements for each section
    • Prioritize each section of the site (p1 - must have with launch, p2 - nice to have, p3 - build out over time)
    • Identify any missing sections and/or feedback on how the site is organized (right categories and sub-categories, anything missing identified)

(3) Build out each section based on those requirements (more weeks July to September)

  • some sections may be very light and simply have a descriptor and then link to other existing Mozilla sites or some may be a new build out of many pages to follow

(4) Launch the new site in the Fall (too agressive on timeline? or ok, I was trying to do this within the time Gandalf is working with Mozilla)

Stakeholders by Section (I tried to list a main contact to start who might introduce us to whomever else they think should be included - I feel like I'm missing leads from the localizers who should also be involved, you may have ideas there for specific people) Contribute (?):

  • QA - Tim Riley
