This is my report on activities related to the Mozilla Foundation for the week ending June 13, 2008.
Projects for the week
Here’s a summary of what Foundation-related activities went on last week; for more information about others’ activities please see the weekly status reports published by David Boswell, Gerv Markham, and Zak Greant.
- Grants and related expenditures
- I updated the list of Mozilla Foundations grants and related expenditures for 2007 to include all items approved in 2007.
- Gary Bishop of the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill published information on the atool project, a follow-on project to an earlier Mozilla Foundation-funded project to enable people with physical disabilities to do keyboard input using commodity webcam hardware.
- Legal issues
- CAs and related issues
- Kathleen Wilson updated the pending CA request list to reflect current information received from CAs; she’s still waiting on information from several CAs.
- Public communication
- Zak continued work on the proposed FOSSCoach event at OSCON.
- Gerv continued work on a project to calculate what percentage of the world’s Internet users have a localized version of Firefox available in their native language.
Upcoming events and activities
- The Mozilla Foundation will be a sponsor of the Personal Democracy Forum conference (June 23-24 in New York NY). Brian Behlendorf will be speaking there, and I’m also planning to attend.
- David, Gerv, and Zak will be attending OSCON (July 21-25 in Portland OR) and the Firefox Summit (July 29-31 in Whistler BC). I will be attending the Firefox Summit but not OSCON.
