What’s up with SUMO – 19th December

The last-but-one SUMO blog post for 2014. Can you feel the excitement of 2015 already? I usually get stuck with writing the old year whenever I have to put a date down for a month or so… But, enough about me, let’s talk about you – the SUMO nation!

The latest SUMO Community meeting

Agenda and notes: https://etherpad.mozilla.org/sumo-2014-12-15… and the video is below!

Reminder: the next SUMO Community meeting…

  • …is going to take place on Monday, 22nd of December (unless we decide to cancel entirely, so keep an eye on the forums and our Twitter feed).
  • You can find the agenda and notes here: https://etherpad.mozilla.org/sumo-2014-12-22
  • Remember – if you want to add a discussion topic to the live meeting agenda:
    • Start a thread in the Community Forums, so that everyone in the community can see what will be discussed and voice their opinion here before Monday (this will make it easier to have an efficient meeting).
    • Please do so as soon as you can before the meeting, so that people have time to read, think, and reply (and also add it to the agenda).
