What are Peers?

Peers support the Reps Module Owner. See ReMo/Structure_Governance for more information about the Reps Program governance structure.

Current Peers

The current Peers are up to date and listed on the [Community Portal].

Peers Role

Holding Council accountable

  • Hold Council accountable according to defined Accountability agreements

Day-to-day operations

  • Provide context and strategic thinking in day-to-day operations to help Council make decisions

Strategic discussions

  • Provide context and strategic thinking in strategy discussions the Reps Council is having related to the Reps Program
  • Provide context and strategic thinking in Open Innovation discussions
  • Be up-to-date with recent developments in the Open Innovation team by following the monthly Open Innovation Team meetings (live or recorded)
  • Flag decisions we do not agree with regarding the Reps Program early enough to have further discussions before publishing decisions

Healthy Program

  • Organize Reps Council elections
  • Be role-models - activities are transparent and documented
  • Publicly visible, engaging and getting feedback from Reps

Internal processes


  • All Peers meetings are on the Reps Portal as events
  • We publicly interact in Reps Discussions on Discourse
  • Peers Tasks (as far as they can be public) are documented in the Reps issues repository
  • Peers write Discourse posts about their ongoing projects (such as the Council Accountability document we have worked on) to update all Reps about their work

  • Announce on mozilla.governance list and wait a bit to make sure there is no show-stopper
  • Add to module page on Wiki
  • Announce to all Reps through Discourse
