The limit is 3 minutes per topic. It's like a lightning talk, but don't feel that you have to have slides in order to make a presentation. If you plan on showing a video, you need to contact the Air Mozilla team before the day of the meeting or you will be deferred to the next week. The meeting is streamed in a 4:3 format in order to allow for split screen. If your slides are 16:9 "widescreen" format, please indicate in the "Sharing" column below.

Notes and non-voice status updates that aren't part of the live meeting go here.

An RTL committee/task force is created!

Delphine Lebédel and Ahmed Nefzaoui (RTL developer, tech speaker) started an initiative of forming a Right-To-Left committee that Mozilla can rely on in expanding RTL support to all of our products and services. If you think your team's projects will need RTL support get in touch with us and make sure to subscribe to our dev-rtl mailing list! This task force is initially made of contributors from all the RTL communities (Arabic, Persian, Hebrew, Urdu), but everyone is welcome to join in! More in: wiki.mozilla.org/RTL
