  • fixed a bug in beta download links generation for beta locales that did not have a beta status for 3.6 (the version number was not included)
  • Laura Forrest is seeing with google if we can issue an update to our snippets to promote the beta 7 in November, if so I will work on that tomorrow
  • Laura Mesa is seeing if/when we will put beta promos on whatsnew pages, it's ready on the l10n side, just needs to be switched on
  • localized news items on mozilla-europe.org promoting European events (Ubuntu Party in France, OpenFest in Bulgaria, preparing a news item for the Ljibiana event)
  • working on some mozilla-europe.org page logic rewrite (pre-nova redesign work + looking to see if I can support multiple templates). Also an opportunity to clean up old code.
