  • Many thanks to the superheroes who localize Firefox OS support documentation: inma_610, Pedro García Rodríguez, deimidis, Guillermo López Leal, Angela Velo, RickieES, Nukeador, Maria Solà, and Ximena Lasserre. You are the amazing smiling face of Mozilla Support to the Spanish-speaking users of Firefox OS!

Upcoming Events

This Week

Monday, 10 February

This Monday we having another session of making metal tags at lunch in the SF Commons and MV office at 12:30PST.

The Crafty group wants to recognize contributors with handmade items. We need you to tell us who you would like to recognize! Also, we would love you to make crafts with us (no special skills required).

We will be creating handmade gifts. You give us the name, address and even a very short message, we will send a gift. It would make it more special if you came and made it yourself, but geographical and time restrictions are understood and we are happy to be your hammer swinging stand in. We can probably only do this for the first 20 responders. If there are more, maybe we can do it again!

For contributors you would like recognized we need: -- Name -- Physical mailing address of some sort (nearest Mozilla office the frequent?) -- Some kind of short approx 15 character or less message or we can just write a generic "Thank you". But the cool thing is that these can be customized so think personal. -- IRC handle? It fits nicely on a tag usually.

Please send this information to 831sabina.brown at gmail.com
