« QA/Community/QMO Design


Getting QMO off the ground is going to require collaboration between the QA and marketing teams, as well as the community. In trying to stay in sync with marketing's branding strategy and the SpreadFirefox launch, we will have a couple of alpha cycles to give a few folks a chance to use the site and give feedback, and will make an official announcement when everything is in place (site features + branding).

We hope to open the site up for public use before beta, in order to give existing community members an opportunity to get involved early...and to accelerate the QA team's transition from the old blog to the new site.
