In bug 213442, Chris Hofmann proposed that we create a Deployments projects and
offered content for the project homepage.  Daniel Wang created a draft page for
this as an attachment to the bug.

I now propose that, in addition to this project page, and as a way to jumpstart
this project, we do the following:
1- Create a Deployments page on the web site that links to pages explaining the
benefits of Mozilla, a listing of deployments, and a set of pointer documents. 
The deployments page would be linked to off the About Section (sidebar entry)
and the Developer section (sidebar entry).  We might make this a top navbar
entry at some later point;
2- Launch a deployments mailing list where people can ask deployment related

Attached is a draft of the Deployments page (not to be confused with Daniel's
deploment project page) and a placeholder Why Mozilla page, with content
provided by Chofmann.

Next steps:
- edit and complete the attached pages
- create the directory of deployments, based on my attached document.  
- create the mailing list
- finalize the deployment project page (213442)
- post and link the various pages. 

Daniel: are you interested in lending a hand with this?

a listing of some large Mozilla deployments

This new page should be the successor/next rev of the Mozilla Hall of Fame -  

What's good about the HOF is the logos and the summaries - we should keep that
in the new page.  The table itself is kind of clunky (logos too big, table
borders not attractive).

What's good in the new page is that we separate out enterprise deployments from
Mozilla apps etc.  Let's try to keep that on the new page.  

So the task is to consolidate these two pages.

15 years ago is the page that might be more
up-to-date.  it also has cool sorting by category and other stuff, but that is a
capability that is only supported by gecko based broswers

needs some real tips... and tools... 
it would be really nice to have a "save profile as system default" 
or "save profile system wide" 
that would also knock out personal information, like cookies and histories.. 
but.. have an option to keep bookmarks. 
I need to know exactly what files in the profile are safe to share with 
everyone, and which ones are required...  It's been hit and miss after 
customizing my mozilla, I spend quite a bit of time creating new profiles, and 
deleting profiles untill I get it right.. 
(my basic steps) 
backup my firefox directory (cp it) 
set up my about:config the way I want it, and set up the tool bar. 
backup the system's copy of firefox's US profile. 
copy random files from my users ~/.firefox/default/asdfkljasdf/ (whatever) 
into the defaults/profiles directory. 
as a different user, start firefox... see if it works, 
if it doesn't, exit that users firefox, and  
copy more files to the systems thing 
delete the test users ~/.firefox directory 
reload firefox as the other user.. 
repeat untill I got the "right" files copied. 
I never know if I copied personal information in there. 
It's too many steps. 
(I need the button/toolbar to be customized)
