Local Sites

Rationale

Our communities are serving tons of goals they own set up for themselves. They can focus on localization, promotion of open standards, quality assurance, documentation, extension development, evangelization or one of many other ways.

Mozilla's goal is to empower them and help them do what they want. One of the most important element of every community is a website. Our research indicated that building and maintaining a website is one of the most challenging and time consuming elements of working with a community. It's especially visible for smaller communities. For them, web design, website deployment, and keeping the web software up to date is a blocker to productivity that sharply reduces time they can spend on actual goal of their community.

Elements

MCS is a system that is made of several elements that are open sourced, free for use and can be combined according to the needs of its users. The tools are:
