Status Updates By Team (*non-voice* updates)

Firefox

DevEngage

You might know that we are using UserVoice to allow people to easily report ideas for the developer tools at http://ffdevtools.uservoice.com. We are now extending this to HTML5 Apps as a whole. This will go live soon, and it would be splendid if anyone of you who found things missing in the "web as the platform" to submit them there in order to pre-seed the channel before we announce it live: https://openwebapps.uservoice.com/forums/258478-open-web-apps

Mobile Partner Site

  • The Mobile Partner site (https://mobilepartners.mozilla.org/) is part of Mozilla’s initiative to scale the delivery of Firefox OS devices. The site is specifically targeted to provide self-serve support to the retail/open Market distribution channels and lower volume operators. The intent is to make everything the partner needs to create a Branded Powered by Firefox OS or Firefox OS Inside device available in a curated, guided site with complete and up to date information regarding our product. In order to distribute a Mozilla branded device, Partners must register on the site, accept the click through Prototype agreement, complete and pass Mozilla’s certification process and sign Branding Terms.
  • With the help of the Mozilla Beijing team we are in the process of translating the site to Chinese. We expect to have Chinese (in addition to English) available online by Sept 1.
  • If you are interested in understanding all the steps that a partner needs to undertake in order to bring a Firefox OS device to market, we invite you to visit the site. Its perfectly ok for you to register on the site and accept the prototype branding agreement so that you can have full access to the site – we just request that you use your Mozilla.com email address if you are on Mozilla staff or clearly identify yourself as a contributor so that our Bus Dev team can determine ‘real’ potential partners. We welcome your input and contribution to making it the best site possible!
  • Also we are planning a brown bag on Sept 4, so please plan to join Adam Rogers, Ben Sternthal and Karen Ward on Airmozilla on that date!
