Notes from www.mozilla.org planning meeting on 10/2

Present: ss, davidwboswell, kairo, sheppy, fantasai, cilias, reed

- Recent Activity

Since the last meeting we have been mostly focused on the archiving
process.

- New Design

This is still pending but we should have information about this soon.

- Localization

There is a site configuration issue that stopped our last effort to
post localized versions of the Mozilla Manifesto. For next steps,
Fantasai is going to try something and if that doesn't fix the problem
we will try to find someone to help figure out what is going on.

- Archiving/Migrating

The archiving process is still ongoing but most of the easily archived
material has been removed and we are now carefully going through the
remaining content that requires more investigation. David has
recently been going through the hacking/ and docs/ directory to figure
out what to keep, what to migrate and what to archive.

We also still plan to set up automatic redirects for archived content
but have run into a problem adding a script to the site. For next
steps, Fantasai and Reed discussed some things to try that might get
this working.

- Policy Documents

A new Policies page has been added to the site at:

http://www.mozilla.org/about/policies/

This collects links to a variety of policy documents, but may be
missing some. Feel free to respond to these notes if there are any
links to be added.

We discussed possibly locking down the policy pages to limit who could
edit them, but we feel that for now we don't need to add any
additional access restrictions for these pages. We also discussed
moving the relevant documents into the new policies directory, but
agreed to keep files where they are unless they are in a place that
didn't make sense (for instance, keep hacking policies in hacking/ and
trademark policies in the Foundation section).

- Staging Server

We discussed that there is a need to set up a staging server for the
site in order to give us a place to work on the new design and also to
work on migrating from CVS to SVN, to move from Doctor to Kubla and to
move away from the build system currently being used to a PHP based
templating system. David will open a bug about this and Reed will
look into setting things up.

- Projects

David mentioned that he had some ideas on this and will update the
relevant bug when he has a chance.

- Other

Reed let us know that Gandalf's wiki is now live at
contribute.mozilla.org but still needs to be worked on more before it
is linked to from the site.

We also mentioned that there is an effort underway to create a
community database but it can't be hosted at people.mozilla.org since
that name is already being used. As an alternative we may want to use
mozillians.org.

We also discussed updating the Roles and Responsibilities page. There
is a patch with suggested changes, but we need to determine the status
of the Drivers page before going forward. Fantasai was going to
contact the release drivers list for further discussion. More
information is in:

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=233840

- Meetings

To make the coordination of meetings easier, we decided to meet on the
first Thursday of every month at 10 pacific.

Go to Mozdev at <http://www.mozdev.org/> for quick access to
extensions for Firefox, Thunderbird, SeaMonkey, and other
Mozilla-related applications. You can access Mozdev much
more quickly than you can Mozilla Add-Ons.

Thanks for the suggestion. I've added that link.
