Mozilla Communities: Your Community Newsletter

Mozilla Communities (formerly about:Mozilla) is the newsletter that brings you the best in opportunities, news, and more from the Mozilla Community.

The newsletter is contributor-led, meaning that content is collaboratively drafted and created by community and staff alike.

New Release Cycle

The newsletter will aim for a two week release cycle.

All planning will be done on the Guides Journalism Forum.

Please add any comments or requests to this forum.

How to submit material for the newsletter

What is a Timely Contribution?

A timely contribution activity is an activity within your team that is not part of your regular volunteer cycle. This means it is a one-time activity where contributors can help you achieve your goals. These activities are featured as a way to excite and motivate new contributors to do more for Mozilla or provide more established contributors new opportunities within the organization.

How do I submit a timely opportunity to the about:Mozilla newsletter?
