One of Mozilla’s goals for this year is to increase the number of active contributors by 10x. That means that many new people will be joining the community and we want to make sure they have a positive experience.

To help new contributors understand more about what they’re getting involved with, we’ve posted draft text of a new volunteer agreement to Governance. I wanted to share the discussion to get feedback and input.

Before reading through it, I’d like to be clear about a couple of points:

  • This is not intended to be a document that people will sign
  • This is not something that applies to existing contributors, just to new people who are joining the community

VMWare Cluster Migrations - Changing engines at 36K feet without your passengers noticing!

Last month, IT set out to replacing some aging VMWare clusters with shiny new clusters. Being that these new clusters were setup as individual clusters from a clean slate, getting the virtual machines migrated to the new clusters took a bit of strategic engineering. We have published a blog post today outlining the details of our "lifeboat method" of migrating virtual machines from one cluster to another with no downtime or impact. Around 1,000 VMs moved and nobody noticed. Just how we wanted it. Check out this blog post for the technical details of how we did it:

Policy & Advocacy

  • Personal Democracy Forum — The Policy & Advocacy crew is headed to PDF in New York this week. We are a sponsor of the conference and will be running a session on ‘Re-Imagining Advocacy to Protect the Free and Open Web’. Together with panelists from EFF, Fight for the Future, Engine Advocacy and Facebook, we are hoping to share and hear new ideas to boost the global open web movement.
  • Reset the Net — This week is the anniversary of the first revelations from Edward Snowden about NSA surveillance, in which the world learned that the NSA is exploiting weak links in Internet security to spy on the entire world, twisting the Internet we love into something it was never meant to be. A year ago, Mozilla helped launch StopWatchingUs to apply pressure to leaders for reform. This year, Mozilla will be joining with Fight for the Future and a host of other organizations to launch a new effort called ‘Reset the Net’ to stop mass surveillance by building proven security into the everyday internet. We encourage all Mozillians to visit ResetTheNet to learn about security tools and steps they can take, including take the pledge for better security on June 5th.
