        • Start of en-US and fr import on Wednesday to evaluate with French localizer Cédric Corazza
      • Everyone, please join the discussion about what new articles to include for Firefox 3 [2]

    • Great help from the community (cor-el, Bo)

    • Incredible community reaction, a HUGE thanks to everyone who helped us out during the first very hectic days in the middle of the holidays
    • At least 15 new contributors readily available to help Firefox users

    • Software eval by contributors
      • Great, new initiative by some community members to draft a possible future live chat solution based on an XMPP plugin that could work with existing IM clients, e.g. Pidgin.
