For me is Ok, but I think is necessary to have a detailed level, maybe
could be great to have a Governance meeting to speak about this and define
details and specific points.
I suggest this because I am part of Mozilla reps program, actually I am a
Council member and I have some mentees. Two of them are working on policy
and Internet governance too and they are very confused about Mozilla's
position and when they can speak as Mozilla reps in Internet governance
field. Is very frustrating to have not idea about details, they have too
many questions and I have not clear answers. I had not an answer for
1. Can I introduce myself as Mozilla Rep in an Internet governance event=
2. Can I introduce myself as Mozilla rep in a political meeting, in the
congress, or government entity?
3. Where Mozilla Stops and my opinion starts?
4. How can Mozilla support my fight against censure laws in my country?
But we have a framework and this is great! I am very happy for your
support and desition to participate in Internet governance.
