- Most nominations are being reviewed within 3 weeks. Our goal is to reduce this to 2 weeks before April.

- I’m currently working on porting the XUL School Tutorial for Extension Developers to MDC. This tutorial was originally developed by Glaxstar (now Appcoast) back when I worked for them. I wrote most of it, and now Appcoast has graciously donated the full tutorial contents to Mozilla. I expect to have ported all of the material within a week or so.
