This is my report on activities of the Mozilla Foundation for the week ending March 17, 2006. Much of the activity this week was related to internal administrivia and related matters; other than preparing for the CSUN conference, significant topics were Mozilla project governance and discussions with CAs.
Projects for the week
Here’s a partial listing of what I and others at the Foundation did the week ending March 17; as I did previously, I’ ve omitted the “next action(s)” comments because they were out of date:
Project governance. We participated in some internal and newsgroup discussions relating to improving project communications and overall project governance. (“Governance” in this context basically means “how the Mozilla project is run.”) Zak Greant also set up a special Bugzilla category for governance-related issues (product “mozilla.org,” component “governance”).
CA discussions. I invited representatives of the NSS development teams at Red Hat and Sun to join discussions with CAs and other browser supplies around “extended validation” certificates, and got them plugged into the relevant mailing lists, etc.
This concludes the report.
