Greetings, SUMO Nation!
We have been away for a while (and for good reasons), but we are back – we missed you all! Have you been doing OK? Has winter caught up with you? Any news you’d like to share with us? We have some want to share with you, so take a while and get reading!
Welcome, new contributors!
If you just joined us, don’t hesitate – come over and say “hi” in the forums!
- LATEST ONE: 14th of December – you can read the notes here (and see the video at AirMozilla).
- NEXT ONE: happening on the 21st of December!
- Reminder – 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 SUMO Release Report is awaiting your submissions – get adding!
- Our Work Week Report will be posted on our blog within the next 10 days or so… We’re working on making it a great summary for all those of you who could not attend, unfortunately. A little (visual) spoiler below…
- The Annual SUMO Report for the period between 1st December 2015 and 1st December 2016 will be posted here within the next 17 days (more or less). You will be asked to contribute your stories/opinions to it, so keep your eyes peeled for more information coming your way :-)
