All-hands Status Meeting Agenda

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

Friends of Mozilla

Thank you to Lyre Calliope, Jan Bambach, Jessilyn Davis, Brian King, and William Quiviger for being Community Building Superstars. You all are assets to the project, and we appreciate your dedication and motivation.

Thank you from the CBT to Sean Rich, Sheeri Cabral and Anurag Phadke for their contribution metrics help

Thank you to Ally Gibely for connecting Payam to people team contribution opportunities and stepping up to be the People team’s Steward

you all rock!

Thanks to Shu-yu Guo for diagnosing the build system issue responsible for numerous orange builds on trunk recently, each requiring tree closure and a CLOBBER to fix. The entire JS team agrees he’s a shoe-in for Friend of the Tree this week!

Upcoming Events

This Week

Mozilla will be participating in Mobile Asia Expo 2014, held in Shanghai June 11-13. Mobile Asia Expo is also organized by the GSMA and is the sister event to Mobile World Congress.

At this event, Mozilla will have a booth with a similar look and feel to what we had at MWC, with demos, meeting spaces, press activities and partner collaboration. Stay tuned for more updates from our team in Asia.

New Phonebook Awesomeness! (Integration of LDAP and WorkDay)

IT has been working with the HR team to make our staff phonebook more useable — by syncing several fields with Workday (our HR system of record). Linking the two systems means the org chart in the phonebook is the same as it is in Workday, updated real-time.

The three fields that will be linked in phase one are:

  • Your manager
  • MozLocation (new field) : this is a new field that will use office names or designate you as a remote employee with province, state or country.
  • Team (new field): name of the team you belong to.

You will still be able to update the following info on your individual phonebook entry:

  • Indicate what projects you are working on
  • Update your photo (hint: add one if you don’t have one!)
  • Update your office city and office country
  • All contact information

This change will go into effect on Friday, June 13th. We will follow- up on Monday, Jun 16th to make sure everything went okay.


Do you have a question about a Mozilla Project or initiative? Let us know by Friday- we’ll do our best to get you an answer.

Please note that we may not always be able to get to every item on this list, but we will try!
