Roundtable Highlights

usul: Would like to adjust the meeting format - much broken audio made it difficult to understand exactly what, but sounded like wanted individual who is up to what in the wiki to make it more information for contributors

rkent: What are we going to talk about in Warsaw? roland: Working out plan for his section (support) on Etherpad


rkent: Can Mozilla provide clear statement about who and how much time Mozilla staff will put on TB so that the community knows what they can work with?

standard8: JB was planning to post something, he's on vacation right now

... ongoing discussion about who knows what about ongoing Mozilla staff levels, and that Mozilla is not sharing this with the community

rkent: would like warsaw meetings to cover hearing from non-developer people what they currently do, and how the forward plan covers getting that done in future.

jenzed/abourcier/ludo: Some of those things on etherpad already, as a basis for Warsaw discussion; not everybody has fleshed this out yet

13:07 (Standard8)

13:08 (rolandtanglao) rkent i believe all the support stuff (including what i do) is on the support etherpad at:
