Mozilla Reps mailing list policy

reps-general

This list is used for general discussions about the Mozilla Reps program and to share punctual news about an event or initiative that is relevant to the Mozilla Reps program and that can inspire/help other Reps.

This list should be used for:

  • Updates from council
  • General webdev updates
  • Suggestions for improving the program
  • Share slides/ presentations or detailed event summary, the information/ format that can be useful to other reps - when doing this, please also make sure to add to the ReMo Tools and Ressources section on the wiki

This list should NOT be used to:

  • ask a technical/practical question (eg. how do I create my profile page?)
  • you should ask your mentor :)
  • discuss topics that are not relevant to the Mozilla Reps program
  • write a one sentence congratulatory note (eg. Well done!) because these pile-up and distract from the more relevant/productive discussions on the mailing list --> you should leave a comment on the Reps profile page or on their blog/FB/twitter etc...
  • share events unless you need guidance from other reps' experiences. Regional events should be planned/discussed at regional mailing lists. So basically we just don't talk what we done on hosting event as reps on the list?
