Mozilla Foundation activities, week ending 2007/03/23
This is my report on activities of the Mozilla Foundation for the week ending March 23, 2007.
Projects for the week
Here's a partial listing of what I and others at the Foundation did this past week:
Grants and related activities. My main activity for the week was attending the CSUN conference. The Mozilla Foundation had a booth in the CSUN exhibit area and also a separate room where we hosted meetings of developers working on Mozilla-related accessibility issues. Aaron Leventhal and others did a conference presentation on the "Mozilla accessibility ecosystem", and we talked to lots of other people about Mozilla Foundation-sponsored work to support accessibility of dynamic web applications and related matters. It was great being able to talk to a number of people whose work we've funded; many thanks to those folks who helped out with the booth.
Next action(s): Figure out all the action items arising from CSUN. Do a blog post summarizing our accessibility-related efforts.
CA certificates. For continuing coverage of CA-related issues the best place to turn to is now Gerv Markham's status reports as posted on Gerv's blog.
Next action(s): None at this time.
IP/legal issues. Got another draft of the proposed corporate contributors agreement (as requested per bug 342029).
Next action(s): Review the contributors agreement draft and get it published (schedule TBD).
Other. See also Gerv's report for the week ending March 23.
- Along with Aaron Leventhal I'll be attending a United Nations event in New York City on March 26 to discuss Mozilla accessibility-related topics; this is in association with the Global Initiative on Inclusive Information and Communications Technologies (G3ICT).
Memo to myself: Avoid flying United Airlines in the future if at all possible. An airline that can't guarantee an assigned seat for a reservation made a month in advance is not really an airline I want to do business with.
