on vacation last week, Mozilla Messaging All Hands the week before

  2. SuMoMo - next: get SuMoMo localization dashboard, bug 549407 working - will ping Andrei about this hope to get progress before Summit, - no metrics because we turned off Google Analytics but haven't turned on replacement; revamping SuMoMo home page to have top 10 problems (and move list of Articles to another page as per SuMo)
  3. Get Satisfaction (see graphic in Support Appendix - normal week - 411 new topics (365), Sadness slightly up: 62% (69%) - GS contributors please check out our new boilerplate response page as well as GS JetPack Helper 0.3 needs hackers and contributors to use it for frequent support replies, email roland!
    • back to basics for support and user pain - based on discussions with support contributors and staff at All Hands going to sketch out higher level use cases instead of assuming that the solution is to just put a layer on top of GS for new topic input wizard - will document this on a wiki page.
    • searching GS topics to ask users who are technical to test out 3.1 and see if their 3.0.x bugs are fixed
