Per discussion on mozilla.governance, point to the Firefox Technical Leadership module for the modules that make up Firefox.
Mozilla operates under a [http://www.mozilla.org/hacking/module-ownership.html module ownership governance system]. A '''module''' is a discrete unit of code or activity. An '''owner''' is the person in charge of a module or sub-module. A '''peer''' is a person whom the owner has appointed to help them. A module may have multiple peers and, very occasionally, multiple owners.
The system is overseen by the owner and peers of the [[Modules/Activities#Module_Ownership_System|Module Ownership module]]. For the modules that make up Firefox, oversight is provided by the [[Modules/Firefox_Technical_Leadership|Firefox Technical Leadership module]]. Owners may add and remove peers from their modules as they wish, without reference to anyone else.
===Creating A New Module===
For many areas, the ability to create, alter ownership of and destroy sub-modules has been delegated to the owner of the module whose broad scope covers that area. This is true for Firefox, Thunderbird, and all of the other areas listed below except for [[Modules/Core|Core]], [[Modules/Activities|Activities]] and [[Modules/Other|Other]]. The controlling module is the first one listed on the page. Please contact that person about getting new modules created.
For Corethe modules that make up Firefox, ultimate oversight is provided by the [[Modules/Firefox_Technical_Leadership|Firefox Technical Leadership module]]. Therefore, please post your inquiry in the mozilla.governance newsgroup, cc'ing the owner and peers of the [[Modules/Firefox_Technical_Leadership|Firefox Technical Leadership module]] at tlmc [at] mozilla [dot] org. If there is something sensitive about your inquiry that you aren't comfortable writing in the newsgroup, or in case of uncertainty, please send it to tlmc [at] mozilla [dot] org. For all other modules (e.g., [[Modules/Activities (|Activities]] and the non-codeFirefox modules in the [[Modules/Other|Other]] category), and Other modules, please post your enquiry inquiry in the mozilla.governance newsgroup, cc'ing the owner and peers of the [[Modules/Activities#Module_Ownership_System|Module Ownership module]] at module-ownership [at] mozilla [dot] org. If there is something sensitive about your enquiry inquiry that you aren't comfortable writing in the newsgroup, or in case of uncertainty, please send it to module-ownership [at] mozilla [dot] org.
