What’s Up with SUMO – 8th September

Hello, SUMO Nation!

September sun… Still hot! At least in some parts of the world. How are you doing? Are you missing summer holidays already? We surely are… But there’s loads to do before the end of this year, so let’s not delay and get cracking!

Welcome, new contributors!

If you just joined us, don’t hesitate – come over and say “hi” in the forums!

Contributors of the week

Don’t forget that if you are new to SUMO and someone helped you get started in a nice way you can nominate them for the Buddy of the Month!

SUMO Community meetings

  • LATEST ONE: 7th of September- you can read the notes here and see the video at AirMozilla.
  • NEXT ONE: happening on the 14th of September!
  • 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.

    The Gremlins strike again

    The link to the community meeting notes given above in the blog is
    * https://public.etherpad-mozilla.org/p/sumo-2016-08-07
    That would appear to be incorrect I believe the correct link is
    * https://public.etherpad-mozilla.org/p/sumo-2016-09-07
    The link shown on airmozilla Videos is also outdated as the meeting mentioned is showing the link to be https://public.etherpad-mozilla.org/p/sumo-2016-08-10
