This page documents all communication channels the Reps program uses as well as their purpose. Additionally this documents our content strategy.
Currently used channels
These are the current channels we are using for announcements and discussion:
|Asynchronous discussions||Main forum for discussions about the Reps program. We create a discussion here for all announcements and other program related discussions we need to have. These links are cross-posted to reps-general. The ultimate goal is to just use Discourse for all discussions while still providing several interfaces to interact with (email is completely possible with Discourse as well). The NDA category is used for sensitive information discussion.|
|Matrix Chat||https://matrix.to/#/!hHmqXvUdKMtqwwHeWu:mozilla.org?via=mozilla.org&via=matrix.org&via=flak.is||Synchronous chat||Chat for synchronous and informal discussions about Reps and Mozilla in general. This channel is not thought to have NDA'd content (please use the Discourse NDA category for this).|
|Matrix Announcement Channel||https://matrix.to/#/!cAyasJUyKZutejteSb:mozilla.org?via=mozilla.org&via=matrix.org&via=t2bot.io||Notifications||Read-only announcements, new Discourse topics and important information is shared through that announcement channel. It is not possible to respond to those. This channel is not thought to have NDA'd content (please use the Discourse NDA category for this).|
|Reps Council Aliasfirstname.lastname@example.org||Governance||Used by the Reps Council for their coordination and discussions. This is automatically posted to a private inbox on Discourse to allow an archive for future Council members. This is the preferred way of reaching out to the Council for private matters. For public discussions please use the Discourse category.|
|Newsletter||https://discourse.mozilla.org/tags/reps-newsletter||Notifications||The Newsletter Team is sending out newsletters to all Reps. This includes all important information and discussions.|
|reps-general||https://lists.mozilla.org/listinfo/reps-general||Deprecated||All Reps are subscribed to the reps-general mailing list. We are posting announcements and discussions with a link to Discourse. Eventually we will decommission this. This is read-only. IMPORTANT: This channel is not thought to have NDA'd content (please use the Discourse NDA category for this). Please read the mailing list policy carefully before writing a message on the list.|
|Reps Twitter Account||https://twitter.com/mozillareps||Communications about the Reps program and Mozilla in general. This is thought to be internally as well as externally facing. This is one of our main channels towards the broader organization.|
|Reps Blog||http://blog.mozilla.org/mozillareps/||Announcements such as OKRs, Rep of the Month, and other program relevant pieces for a broader audience (whole Mozilla org, other interested parties, ..)|
|Facebook Reps page||https://www.facebook.com/MozillaReps/||This page is maintained by Mayur Patil, Vishal Chavan, Yofie Setiawan and Srushtika Neelakantam.|
Communication Content Strategy
Our current strategy is to identify further improvements to be done. For now, in terms of publication of information, we will continue as-is. This means the following:
|Rep of the Month||
|Announcements about the Program||
|Reps Weekly Meetings||
|Council Weekly Meetings||
|Infos about the program||
Tweets by Reps
With Content Queue we can have a GitHub repository which holds issues that will be tweeted through @MozillaReps once the issue is approved.
Repository to hold the tweets, everyone can contribute: https://github.com/mozilla/reps-tweets/issues
Further information on how to file tweets: https://github.com/mozilla/reps-tweets/blob/master/CONTRIBUTE.md
Currently there are no ongoing communication experiments.
