|How has this individual helped advance the core mission of Mozilla?

1) The hosting service provided should not be considered an ISP;
2) The hosting service will not serve as a web tool similar to a forum where there is liability;
3) We will provide a limited space to each localization (what will that space allotment be?);
4) We need to limit liability. Beginning thoughts were that we start with a standard file sharing solution where localizers and developers can store information.
