Grow Mozilla

Speaker Location: San Francisco

As part of our 15th anniversary, we'd like everyone to help us build a history of Mozilla told by Mozillians. Every week until the Summit, we'll be blogging a different milestone in our history and we'd like you to attach stories, photos of t-shirts, photos of other stuff, and videos in the comments of those posts.

One thing we could do with the stories Mozillians share is update the History of the Mozilla Project. Imagine the possibilities of combining our stories with the cutting-edge technology behind the Horsehead Saga Timelime.

Automation & Tools

  • Many panda failures (intermittent reboots) have been diagnosed as a wiring issue in the chassis. Wiring is being replaced this week. Many thanks to jmaher, dividehex, and kmoir for some amazing debugging on this one
  • Fixed some issues with errant bugmail in bugzilla
  • Working with developers on an experimental microbenchmark performance suite - more to come as code starts to land.
  • We noticed that our mentored bugs/good first bugs had gotten kind of stale and it was hard for contributors to really understand what is needed and what is required in those bugs. We're going to freshen those up this week, and we encourage other teams at Mozilla to do the same.
  • Lots more underway here
