Note items here that you want to be sure the community is aware of. We won't rehash what's listed here, but may raise and discuss questions about these items.

  • Happy 10th birthday to MDN!
    • We're gathering links to blog posts and news stories about this occasion to share on the MDN at ten mini-site.
  • An outline has been drafted for the Python tutorial that will be added to our Learning area.
  • We've brought in a social media expert contractor, Danielle Vincent, to help us promote MDN and get the word out.
    • 10th anniversary campaign
    • General social media promotion stufff
  • Macro/template news
    • The {{bug}} macro now lets you specify, optionally, a comment number to link to.
    • The VersionTimeline macro, used on XPCOM interface summary pages, now uses the Nightly version number as the "current" version instead of the release version of Firefox. This fixes issues with rendering the timelines on XPCOM interface reference pages, where we update docs before the change is shipped. Let Sheppy know if this change breaks anything.
    • IFSummaryStart macro bug fixed; it was generating invalid links to the article explaining what a scriptable interface is.

Topics for Discussion

Are you facing a challenge with something related to MDN, or need help from others in the community? Please bring it up for discussion.

  • (jswisher) Fate of "Contributor of the Month"? Voting on the "best" contributor seems antithetical to a collaborative culture. Plus we have many awesome regular contributors. How should we address this?
    • Decisions:
      • Eliminate "Contributor of the Month," replacing it with a monthly interview post “Meet [SoAndSo]"
      • Investigate automatically displaying badges on MDN
        • A page showing the badges awarded in the past two weeks
        • Related: [bug|1174275] about showing badges on users' profiles
      • Each month, post about new badge recipients on dev-mdc
    • klez will put together an initial outline and then encourage people to contribute to that via dev-mdc.


Anything else we need to discuss synchronously?

  • Who will moderate the next meeting?
