Community Building/Events (ideas and progress) [marcia/ashughes]

- MozCamp Malaysia Status

QA Videos [marcia]
Meeting Notes/Action Items
- (tchung) at mozcampasia, i learned that people's backgrounds were mostly localizers and contributer engagement folks, and web developers. Many of them were not really technical, but they have the heart and excitement of outreach.
- 5 countries expressed interested in a testday, and learn more about products.
- indonesia in particular, will be participating 3 folks in this week's OWA testday
- future idea: localized communities understand what testdays are, and we provide a list of projects they can take on. then they can run a localized testday in their region, in their own time zone, while fulfilling tasks that mozQA initially provides through docs and posts.
- target the community localizer contacts first. (eg. Viking from Indonesia, Bob from Taiwan)
- mozQA makes an effort to join their localized testday when that happens. A place to start, helping nurture and mentor initially.
Action items/Notes from (20111130) meeting
- Suggest a Blog Post on QMO that defines BHAGs -
- Start categorizing these and standardizing the areas.
- "be careful who you tell your dreams to"
- "vagueness of the definition. The specificity of the BHAG may be to a certain extent something that changes over time.
- transparency - even folks that are close to the QA org have no clues as to what QA does. Huge deficit that need a BHAG to improve.
