11:22 ejat has left IRC (Ping timeout)
11:22 michelleluna: smo is describing the main issue with localizations that this content is not getting to the local users who need it
11:23 michelleluna: is the forums, the numbers of non-English speaking users has dropped off dramatically
11:23 michelleluna: the translations should be used by the local populations, but it doesn't get through
11:25 michelleluna: so, when will the forums be opened to non-English speakers?
11:27 RaulM is now known as RaulM--
11:28 Matt_G has left IRC (Ping timeout)
11:28 michelleluna: the point is that everyone speaking non-English languages needs forum support too
11:29 michelleluna: ibai has talked to several groups who don't want to use SUMO as a platform, but we all agree that we need to offer that as a feature (it is a technical problem and a human problem)
11:29 verdi: Ibai: do you have echo cancellation on
11:30 Jan has joined (janb@moz-25B39DBA.pool.mediaways.net)
11:30 Ibai: verdi..you right

11:31 willyaranda has joined (willyarand@moz-BA0C58B0.dynamic.jazztel.es)
11:31 michelleluna: djst wanted to also wait until there was a clear demand for this, now that we have that demand, we need to figure out when we can do this and what is the scope
11:31 smo: thats it for now, thx gzys
11:31 michelleluna: slovenia will be early adopters of this, kadir and bram will work out the details and put it on the roadmap
11:32 ejat has joined (fenris@moz-ACF11AD4.tm-hsbb.tm.net.my)
11:33 Lucy__ is now known as Lucy
11:33 Lucy: how does community IT factor into the need to onboard community support? ie there are new avenues for helping local communities provide support
11:34 smo: michelleluna can we have the scoobis report pls
11:34 michelleluna: smo: yes, it is on the forum, I'll post a link
11:34 smo: ok thx
11:35 michelleluna: lucy: can you rephrase
11:35 michelleluna: with a bit more detail?
11:35 michelleluna: lucy:^
11:37 Lucy: michelleluna: heh ok, just stumbled on the meeting ;)
11:37 michelleluna: firefox 10.01 went out Friday
11:37 michelleluna: yay! nice to have you lucy!
11:37 Lucy: well there is new community growth, and mozilla is supporting it in new ways
11:37 Lucy: one of the ways is mozilla is paying for hosting for established communities
11:37 Lucy: and even coordinating IT volunteers to help them out
11:37 Matt_G has joined (chatzilla@moz-76E2CF8.bvtn.or.frontiernet.net)
11:38 Lucy: so it might make a lot of sense not to try and onboard these communities to the same sumo site, but help them on their own turf so to speak
11:38 Lucy: and make better use of linking out to community support sites
11:38 smo: KadirČ whats amazing is the drop in w8, 30 ...
11:38 juanb has joined (jbecerra@moz-BBE3ABD.mv.mozilla.com)

11:39 williamr has joined (williamr@moz-C03D0C61.vlan426.asr1.sfo1.gblx.net)
11:41 timc: Lucy: Are you asking if Mozilla will assist local SUMO communities with funding for webhosting local versions of Firefox support forums, a copy of Kitsune/SUMO forum software etc.?
11:42 Lucy: timc: i'm saying that mozilla is assisting local communities
11:42 Lucy: i'm suggesting that it should be considered going forward
11:42 michelleluna: metrics updates: lots of new contributors to the forum in recent weeks!
11:42 timc: got it
11:42 Lucy: onboarding local communities made perfect sense when we weren't providing them with resources in other ways
11:42 michelleluna: thanks to all the new folks and all the moderators for mentoring and for helping so many users
11:42 Lucy: well i'm phrasing it like i think we shouldn't onboard at all
11:43 Lucy: just saying it's a different environment now, and maybe it makes sense in some/many? cases, preserve their autonomy and take on less for the SUMO team
11:43 michelleluna: knowledge base information architecture presentation is posted, please provide feedback
11:45 Ibai: fyi, there's no contact details in the itunes store
11:45 Lucy: argh but i have to look away, too much to do before remo meeting
11:45 Ibai: the only thing is a link to SUMO
11:46 michelleluna: lucy: thanks for this info! very cool, would like to hear more about it
11:46 Lucy: michelleluna: sure, you can contact williamq or mrz, of if you email me I can collect links and info for you
11:47 ejat has left IRC (Ping timeout)
11:47 michelleluna: before we sign off on the info architecture plan, cww has looked at the data and has some concerns about the issues that are specific to a firefox release
11:47 ejat has joined (fenris@moz-ACF11AD4.tm-hsbb.tm.net.my)
11:50 ejat has left IRC (Ping timeout)

11:52 rshetty has joined (quassel@6D51372.3EEBC369.C842849F.IP)
