There has been an ongoing discussion about creating a Powered by Mozilla logo that people and organizations can use as part of their projects or products. We have been working on creating some guidelines to determine how the logo can be used and I wanted to post an update about where we are with this.
Guidelines need to be specific since we don’t want someone to be able to check out just one file from our repositories and then claim that their application is Powered by Mozilla. The problem is that there doesn’t seem to be an existing list of reusable technologies that the Mozilla community creates*.
Since a list doesn’t seem to exist, I took a pass at creating one. I’m pretty sure my list is incomplete or contains things that might not make sense, so I wanted to get some feedback. If you have suggestions about the following criteria or technologies, please comment on this blog or edit this wiki page.
Draft Technology Criteria
- The code should be an official and currently active Mozilla project
- The code should be included in an official Mozilla product or it should be packaged for re-use by other products
Draft Technology List
*There is the old Mozilla Projects page, but this is out of date and contains not just technology projects but also entire applications (like SeaMonkey) and community efforts (like the marketing project). MDC has a list of technologies on the home page, but this isn’t geared toward Mozilla code that others can reuse (for instance, SVG is a specification developed by the W3C and not a technology that the community has created).
