- How to expand Test Days to other aspects of QA
- "Mozilla QAC" (QA Community) - Create a presence at major social networking sites (MySpace, Hi5, Facebook, etc). Some groups already exist for Firefox, but need to figure out whether to tap into that or start a QA specific group.
- "Mini-Projects" - Small, short-term projects that will either help the QA team get work done or allow the community to try out new things and create through learning.
- Action items page that is closely related to everyday QA tasks for community members to hit anytime
Ideas in Action
