Hello, SUMO Nation!
Yes, it’s Friday the 13th this week, considered by some cultures to be a day of “bad luck”, so… Read quickly, before the bells chime for midnight! But, before we get there… Happy birthday, Charles Perrault! and a happy National Youth Day to everyone in India!
Welcome, new contributors!
If you just joined us, don’t hesitate – come over and say “hi” in the forums!
SUMO Community meetings
- LATEST ONE: 11th of January – you can read the notes here (and see the video at AirMozilla).
- NEXT ONE: happening on the 18th of January!
- 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.
- Have you had a chance to take a look at the 2016 Report for SUMO? (and if you do, say “thanks” to Rachel for her hard work on all the data!)
- Roland will share his plans for Internet Awareness this quarter soon. In the meantime, we are keeping our ears and eyes open to your ideas – brainstorm with us!
- Reminder: If you are struggling with using Vidyo on Ubuntu, please contact Seburo – he may have found a solution for your pains.
- Reminder: Are you interested in working together on training for new contributors? Talk to Rachel!

- The latest test migration was kicked off only recently. Results to follow soon.
- No anonymous kudos (upvotes) in Lithium (you need to be logged in to upvote someone’s contribution) mean probably fewer upvotes as a result.
