Friends of the Tree Friends of the Tree

  • Rajeev Bharshetty [:rshetty] - For being instrumental in helping verify the affiliates.mozilla.org and mozillians.org BrowserID releases. Rajeev spent a good portion of his holiday break away from school helping insure new features were wicked high quality and the team understood the risks associated with shipping the code.
  • Sergey Tupchiy [:stupchiy] - Another awesome contributor to WebQA, who has been instrumental in not only beefing up our AMO automation tests in Selenium, but also helping us complete a Q4 goal of automating tests for Engagement projects, as well as helping out with Socorro, Affiliates (BrowserID), and much, much more, automation-wise. Thanks so much!
  • Jason Smith, Jessica Davis, and Mike Conley for helping out with Firefox 10.0b3 testing

Mozilla Blog Guidelines - Brown Bag Talk

Noon PST in Ten-Forward

Description: The PR and Creative teams have been working to streamline our outbound communication channels. We have drafted a set of Mozilla Blog Guidelines, which will help to better distinguish between personal opinions and an official Mozilla positions, represented on our various blogs. It's meant to give guidance to all Mozilla teams when publishing to Mozilla blogs, when setting up new blogs or when simply seeking support on any outbound communication.

In this session we would like to show and discuss the current draft of the Mozilla Blog Guidelines, looking for your comments and thoughts before we roll them out more broadly.
