Mozilla Foundation activities, week ending 2007/09/21
This is my report on activities related to the Mozilla Foundation for the week ending September 21. I spent a lot of the week handling internal administrivia.
Projects for the week
Here's a summary of what Foundation-related activities went on last week; for more information about others' activities please see the weekly status reports published by David Boswell, Gerv Markham, and Zak Greant.
- I'm still waiting on more feedback on the proposed corporate contributors agreement.
Grants and related activities
Alexander Surkov completed the second milestone on his implementation in Mozilla of the IAccessible2 accessibility API for Windows (to be used by future versions of Firefox and Firefox-compatible screen readers on Windows). The IA2ToGecko project page has more information, including links to the relevant bugs.
Ariel Rios completed the second milestone on his project to implement a new Collection interface for the GNOME AT-SPI accessibility API (to be used by future versions of Firefox and Firefox-compatible screen readers on Linux). For more information (and to track progress) see GNOME bug 326516.
Steve Lee completed the final milestone for his project to create a prototype switch-activated on-screen keyboard for Firefox; he'll be showing this at the Mozilla accessibility summit.
- David continued work on getting old www.mozilla.org content archived.
I'm considering attending the Mozilla accessibility summit on October 5 in Boston.
I'm also considering attending one or both days of the Seneca College Free Software and Open Source Symposium (FSOSS 2007) in Toronto on October 25 and 26.
