The new Get Involved page was posted on mozilla.org last week and we’ve had a good response so far. The page encourages people to contact us* about what they’d like to do and we’ve had:
- 7 people contact us about QA
- 2 people contact us about localization
- 2 people contact us about webdev
- 1 person contact us about coding
- 1 person contact us about stats analysis
There’s nothing to compare these numbers with, but having over a dozen people in a week express interest in contributing to Mozilla seems like a good thing. (Thanks to Tomcat for responding to most of those emails).
As I mentioned before, getting the new page up is only the beginning for what we could be doing. How do we get more people to this page? What’s the best way to help people get started when they express interest? Would having mentors for different community areas be useful?
If you’re interested in these questions, please come by our next contribute group call:
