Greetings, SUMO Nation!
This is it! The start of the last month of the year, friends :-) We are kicking off the 12th month of 2016 with some news for your reading pleasure. Dig in!
Welcome, new contributors!
If you just joined us, don’t hesitate – come over and say “hi” in the forums!
SUMO Community meetings
- LATEST ONE: 30th of November – you can read the notes here (and see the video at AirMozilla once we get it up there, since we had some technical issues).
- NEXT ONE: happening on the 14th of December!
- 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 State of Mozilla Report is here!
- Help us connect all people to the open Internet through the #EqualRating Innovation Challenge.
- Please remember that Persona has shut down as of yesterday. All affected services will offer alternative log in methods, so look for more information about that on their sites.
- Final reminder: If you want to help us brainstorm how to promote “Internet Awareness” among our visitors, please join us here.
- Get musical with SUMO! The playlist is here… and the forum thread is here.
- Check the notes from the last meeting in this document. (and don’t forget about our meeting recordings).

- Postponing of the final migration until the first week of 2017.
