This is my report on activities of the Mozilla Foundation for the week ending October 13, 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 had some more discussions with folks about how to handle the SeaMonkey trademarks.

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

  • Grants and related activities. I attended the Mozilla accessibility summit in Cambridge MA to talk to the various people we’ve funded to do accessibility-related work, and get an update on accessibility-related development activities. It was a great event; for more information on what went on see Mark Pilgrim’s accessibility summit blog post. As noted in Mark’s post we also completed paperwork on funding XUL accessibility work by WebAIM; I’m glad that got done and we’re able to announce it to everyone. Finally, I’m happy to note that the Mozilla Foundation will be a sponsor of the W4A conference on accessibility next year.

    Next action(s): Follow up with some other candidates for funding.

  • Press. I did two interviews about the announcement that future versions of Eudora will be based on open source (namely Thunderbird).

    Next action(s): None at this time.

Upcoming activities

  • 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.
  • Frank to be at Mozilla HQ in Mountain View November 15–17 (tentative).

This concludes the report.
