This is my report on activities of the Mozilla Foundation for the week ending August 25, 2006.

Projects for the week

Here’s a partial listing of what I and others at the Foundation did this past week:

  • Sunbird and SeaMonkey. I did some more work related to trademark issues for Sunbird and SeaMonkey (working with the respective teams), including creating a EULA for Sunbird similar to the Firefox EULA.

    Next action(s): As appropriate.

  • Grants. The board approved a grant proposal to an academic institution to support some proposed Mozilla-related initiatives; more on this later as things get finalized. I also did more work on an accessibility-related grant; again, more info to follow later once details are worked out.

    Next action(s): Get the administrative issues sorted out on the above-mentioned grants.

  • Other. I assisted Seth Bindernagel with getting some questions answered regarding the proposed Mozilla Corporation corporate giving program. I discussed with Gerv Markham and Zak Greant the possibility of making a Mozilla Foundation donation to an appropriate nonprofit organization to offset carbon dioxide emissions associated with air travel by Foundation staff.

    Next action(s): As appropriate.

Upcoming activities

  • I’ll be on vacation (sort of) the week of September 4–8.
  • Zak Greant will be attending the Government CIO Summit in Ottawa on September 28.

This concludes the report.
