This is my report on activities of the Mozilla Foundation for the week ending April 14, 2006. The major news for this week is the grant.

Projects for the week

Here’s a partial listing of what I and others at the Foundation did the week ending April 14:

  • The Mozilla Foundation board approved a $60K grant ($30K/year for two years) to the Mozdev Community Organization to support their efforts to improve the site for third-party developers of Firefox extensions and other Mozilla-related software.

    Next action(s): Up to the mozdev folks.

  • Mozilla history project. The Mozilla Foundation is making a small grant to the Center for History and New Media (at George Mason University) to help fund oral history interviews for their Mozilla/Firefox history project.

    Next action(s): Work with CHNM further as appropriate.

  • GPLv3. I participated in another GPLv3 conference call and started writing formal comments on GPLv3 license compatibility issues.

    Next action(s): Continue drafting comments document, with goal to finish in plenty of time for the May 15 deadline for comments.

Upcoming activities

Here’s what I’ll be doing and where I’ll be in the coming months.

  • I may be in San Jose May 30–31 for the NetSquared conference.
  • I’ll be in Mountain View in June for a Mozilla Foundation board meeting.

This concludes the report.
