This is my report on activities of the Mozilla Foundation for the week ending October 6, 2006.

Projects for the week

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

  • IP-related issues. I did some trademark-related work for SeaMonkey, plus various other items.

    Next action(s): Look at creating trademark policies for SeaMonkey, Sunbird, and other non-Corporation products.

  • Grants and related activities. I finished up paperwork for funding some more accessibility-related work, and will announce it soon. There’s also another grant proposal we’ve received for an unrelated area, plus we’ve gotten expressions of interest from a number of other organizations regarding applying for grants.

    Next action(s): Get a decision made on the current grant proposal being considered, and take a look at other grant opportunities to gauge their suitability from a Foundation point of view.

  • IDN. The Foundation will be sponsoring Neil Harris to speak on the Mozilla project’s work on Internationalized Domain Names at the Internet Governance Forum meeting in Athens Greece on October 30 through November 2.

    Next action(s): Assist Neil with travel arrangements.

Upcoming activities

  • I’ll be in Cambridge MA on Tuesday, October 10, for the first day of the Mozilla accessibility summit, and will be taking a vacation day on Friday, October 13.
  • Zak will be stopping by to visit at Mozilla HQ in Mountain View in late October while he’s in town for the Zend/PHP conference.

This concludes the report.
