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

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

Automation & Tools

bugzilla.mozilla.org

Notable changes to bugzilla.mozilla.org during the last week:

  • bug 1041964 Added an indication that a comment is required when setting some tracking flag values

All changes.

Engagement

Apps & Marketplace

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!

All-hands Status Meeting Agenda

Items in this section will be shared during the live all-hand status meeting.

Friends of Mozilla

Huge kudos to Benjamin Kerensa!
Benjamin is a super active rep, a former WebFWD Scout and key contributor for Release Management. Most recently served as chief herder for Mozilla’s presence at OSCON. He not only spoke, but organized two large social events and Mozilla’s social media presence (and more). If that weren’t enough, Benjamin also served as a critical subject matter expert on CDNs, sussing out vendors for hosting the Flame developer phone builds. Please take a minute to tweet, email or give Benjamin a fist bump if you are up in PDX!

Many thanks to Linear Li in the Taipei office for producing the first-ever Intern Brownbags on Air Mozilla from the Taipei Office. They’re in the Mozilla Intern – 2014, and Taipei channels on AirMo. Borting Chen discusses his work on the Resource Statistics API, Ricky Chien talks about integrating test report coverage into the Gaia unit testing framework, Test Agent, and KD Chang presents work on the MozPost recommendation system and Huhu, a bookmarklet that lets you keep a virtual pet in Firefox.

Nagarjuna Verma and Rahid Hasan of the Mozilla South Asia community are no longer with us as recently reported but their contributions and positive impact in the Mozilla Community will always be remembered.

Thanks to Sami Jaktholm for fixing lots of Devtools bugs including some frequent test failures.

Codingfree is the latest app reviewer to reach level 6 of the reviewer program, with 97,068 points–congrats!

Thanks to erosman and XrXr, new to the add-on review team, who are off to a good start and have helped greatly reduce the length of the AMO review queues.

Björn Steinbrink has written dozens of optimizations for Rust. In the last two weeks he taught LLVM to reuse empty stack slots, making Rust significantly more efficient.

Congrats to Clint Talbert, this week’s community building superstar!
