Hello, SUMO Nation!
Welcome to the hot-hot-hot July! Wherever you are, remember – don’t melt! It’s a bit hard to achieve that over here (air conditioning only gets you so far), so I hope you’ll have an easier challenge on your side. Speaking of hotness – here are the red-hot-
Welcome, new contributors!

Most recent SUMO Community meeting
The next SUMO Community meeting…
- …is happening on the 13th of July!
- If you want to add a discussion topic to the upcoming 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 Wednesday (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).
- If you can, please attend the meeting in person (or via IRC), so we can follow up on your discussion topic during the meeting with your feedback.
- PLATFORM REMINDER & UPDATE! The Platform Meetings are BACK! If you missed the previous ones, here is the etherpad, with links to the recordings on AirMo. We are closing the sandbox preview – huge thanks to everyone who had the time to take a look around and provide feedback!
- The sandbox is now closed and we’re moving towards discussing more (non-)technical details of a potential migration to Lithium.
- Different approaches to making l10n work in Lithium have been discussed – next week, we will hopefully know more about the option of using Pontoon with Lithium. The initial plan is to roll out an “out of the box” solution with low-level customizations to make it easy for localizers to continue working on the KB.
- POST-LONDON WORK WEEK UPDATE:
- A second Show & Tell post coming your way… Have you already read the first one?
- Heads up! The Release Report for Firefox 47 is almost here!
- FINAL REMINDER: help us shape and improve Mozilla’s brand!
- To quote Tim Murray: We are now open for feedback on these 7 themes—and for new theme ideas covering anything that might be missing—through the comments section of the blog, on Medium, or directly to me or Janis Greenspan. Now’s the time to add your voice.
- Ongoing reminder #1: if you think you can benefit from getting a second-hand device to help you with contributing to SUMO, you know where to find us.
- Ongoing reminder #2: we are looking for more contributors to our blog. Do you write on the web about open source, communities, SUMO, Mozilla… and more? Do let us know!
