This is my report on activities of the Mozilla Foundation for the week ending April 28, 2006. This week I worked on a number of different projects, with no major theme standing out.
Projects for the week
Here’s a partial listing of what I and others at the Foundation did the week ending April 28:
XTech conference. Gerv Markham will be attending the XTech conference in Amsterdam May 16–19 representing the Mozilla Foundation.
Next action(s): Work to ensure that all necessary arrangements are made for conference attendees being sponsored by the Foundation.
NetSquared conference. I registered for the NetSquared conference May 30–31 in San Jose. I also had a phone conversation with a couple of representatives of CompuMentor (the organization sponsoring the NetSquared conference) to discuss the goals of the conference.
Next action(s): Make travel arrangements.
CA certificates and Mozilla. I had some email correspondence and a phone conversation regarding how Certification Authorities involved in academic grid computing initiatives might get their CA certificates included in Mozilla-based products. (For some background on this topic see the proceedings of the recent NIST PKI R&D Workshop.)
Next action(s): If it’s warranted I might schedule a meeting later this year to discuss this general topic with representatives of various academic networks working in this space.
Next action(s): Put together a final set of comments in time for the May 15 deadline for the first round of comments.
Gerv Markham. Gerv’s surgery went well and he will be working on Mozilla stuff again soon.
Next action(s): Pass back to Gerv various tasks I was doing during his absence.
Here’s what I’ll be doing and where I’ll be in the coming months.
- I’ll be visiting the Center for History and New Media in Fairfax CA on May 11.
- I’ll be attending the NetSquared conference in San Jose CA on May 30–31.
- I’ll be in Mountain View CA sometime in June or July for a Mozilla Foundation board meeting.
This concludes the report.
