Description

3 years ago
There is a main contributors group, online, that is simply named 'Mozilla Contributor' that David Weir created that I help admin.  However, I had created a secondary group for contributors-a group just for those with disabilities so that those with disabilities can have a place to met to discuss about concernes they have that come up as they contribute with disabilities.  I would like there to be a mailing list forum created for contributors with disabilities, as well.  I am creator and admin of that group, but I don't host it on Facebook, too, just on IRC, for now.  I want to expand that, though, but only for it being through a mailing list (and through a separate mailing list than the mailing list recently granted the main contributors group 'Mozilla Contributors.'  I would like it to be there so that those contributors with disabilities can have a place to go to feel comfortable voicing/saying their concernes, their questions, or their ideas about contributing with disabilities, and the unique challenges that can come up out of contributing with disabilities.

No, because I didn't know that.  But, I had been in contact in the past with a woman Mozillian who posted in the Comminuty Building mailing list forum some momnths, ago, about my group for disabled.  She liked that idea as did Larissa, I think.  Glad you added David Bolter to this bug.

Hello April,

I'm not sure if this request was filed in the right place. Does this form look more appropriate for your request?:

I took your form you linked, and I filed it out and I added you to it, as well, just so you knew I filed in the, "right place" for this.  :)
