This is my report on my activities related to the Mozilla Foundation for the week ending April 20, 2007.
Projects for the week
Here’s a partial listing of what I did this past week:
Grants and related activities. I approved two new accessibility-related proposals, and send another to the Mozilla Foundation board for consideration; more information to come later as things progress..
IP/legal issues. Due to competing priorities, I again didn’t make any progress on the proposed corporate contributors agreement (bug 342029).
Next action(s): Spend more time on getting the contributors agreement moved forward.
Other. I published a blog post discussing my intention to step down as executive director of the Foundation. I published the Mozilla Manifesto and the current Mozilla Foundation statement of direction to www.mozilla.org.
Next action(s): Help put together a plan for community involvement in the search for a new executive director.
- I have a house move tentatively scheduled for May 4, so I’ll be mostly unreachable around that time until the chaos settles down.
- I’ll be in Atlanta on July 2 to speak at annual meeting of the National Federation of the Blind in Computer Science.
- I’m considering attending at least part of OSCON 2007 July 23–27.
- I’ll tentatively be in Boston on July 30–31.
