This is my report on activities of the Mozilla Foundation for the week ending May 12, 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 May 12:

  • Accessibility grants. Håkan Waara has been working on the project to create an implementation plan for accessibility on Mac OS X, and has published some work in progress: a comparison of accessibility architectures on our three major platforms.

    Next action(s): Still trying to get another accessibility grant under way.

  • CA certificates and Mozilla. I tracked down some more background information relevant to the application from StartCom to have CA certificates included in Mozilla-based products (bug 289077).

    Next action(s): Complete action on StartCom’s application, start working on other pending CA applications.

  • Mozilla history project. I visited the Center for History and New Media at George Mason University to discuss their planned Mozilla history project. I reviewed the current state of their online site (still in development) and did an interview for the oral history portion of the site.

  • Administrivia. I set up VOIP phone service for my Mozilla Foundation work and fax numbers, and added the new numbers to my contact information.

    Next action(s): None at this time.

Upcoming activities

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

  • Gerv Markham will be attending the XTech conference in Amsterdam May 16–19.
  • I’ll be attending the NetSquared conference in San Jose CA on May 30–31, and staying over on June 1 for other Mozilla-related activities.
  • I’ll be in Mountain View CA sometime in July for a Mozilla Foundation board meeting.

This concludes the report.
