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.
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.
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.
