This is my report on activities of the Mozilla Foundation for the week ending September 15, 2006.

Projects for the week

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

  • Grants and related topics. I concluded arrangements for the Foundation to fund Henri Sivonen to develop an HTML5 conformance checker prototype, based on existing work he’s done in this area. I also approved a grant to Knowbility Inc. for Mozilla accessibility developer travel expenses and general sponsorship of the Second 2006 California Web Accessibility Conference (CalWAC2) at the California State University at Long Beach on September 28–29.

    Next action(s): Sort out administrative arrangements for a couple of other projects we’re planning to fund.

  • IP-related issues. I formally initiated trademark applications for the Sunbird word mark and logo, and for the SeaMonkey word mark. Gerv worked to ensure proper licensing for language dictionaries contributed for use with Mozilla products.

    Next action(s): Initiate application for the SeaMonkey logo after any needed paperwork gets done.

Upcoming activities

This concludes the report.
