Create Evangelism Product
Currently "Evangelism" is a component under some Product categories. We have need to sub-divide "Evangelism" efforts into regions and languages based on demand. This will also prevent the number of components from increasing. Product: Evangelism Components: US Non-US (CA,AU,GB) Canada, Australia, United Kingdom Asia Europe South America Default owners as follows: US: email@example.com Non-US (CA,AU,UK): firstname.lastname@example.org Asia: email@example.com Europe: firstname.lastname@example.org South America: email@example.com
I guess Non-US GB will overlap with Europe. Maybe we should have instead: Non-US (CA, AU)
Should the default owner also be the default qa contact? Lets call the product "Tech Evangelism" so it matches the soon-to-be-created project on the web site. (although I'd still prefer for one of us to magically be inspired and find some other term that describes tech evangelism but doesn't connote 'net kooks' or 'we're goign to annoy you till you submit'. =) dmose suggested 'advocacy' but that's just as bad.) by "non-us", do you mean "non-us english"? Apparently, so since you added "ca, au, uk". There should be a default bucket for other areas. (middle east, africa, pacific islands, etc) I understand you're grouping things together by geography because the maintainers of sites in english don't necessarily speak english. What about the opposite? Should problems with a japanese or arabic language site go into the US bucket? It seems like hebrew and arabic sites will have smilar problems no matter where they are located and should be grouped together. Please come up with a paragraph (or a sentence) for each component that describes to people filing bugs what kind of bugs are appropriate to file in that component.
For US bugs, the default QA should remain Zach Lipton. For the other intl bugs, I would suggest if firstname.lastname@example.org is the owner then email@example.com be the QA and vice versa, but that is up to Kat and Tristan. I would rather not have the product name longer than 8 characters since it will be truncated on reports. If you really have an objection to Evangelism as the product then pick whatever you think is proper but keep it at 8 characters or less and keep enough of Evang in the name as possible. There is to be a new project on mozilla.org called "Tech Evangelism"?
I am back from vacation and woudl like to move this forward. Here are the component names and short descripotions for each. If these are OK, please create the product, Evangelism or Tech Evangelism and the following ocmponent names. 1. African: (Owner: Tristan Nitot, QA: Katsuhiko Momoi) Evangelism bugs found on African sites or on sites which use an African language such as Bantu. 2. Asian: (Owner: Katsuhiko Momoi, QA: Jon Rubin) Evangelism bugs found on Asian sites or on sites which use an Asian language. For this definition, Asian includes countries and languages of East, South and Southwest Asia. This category also includes languages like Mongolian and Tibetan. 3. European: (Owner: Tristan Nitot, QA: Katsuhiko Momoi) Evangelism bugs found on European sites or on sites which use an European language. For this definition, European includes countries and languages of Russia, Ukraine, former USSR Republics, Western, and East European countries. (United Kingdom is in this category.) Canadian French sites should be included here also. 4. Middle Eastern: (Owner: Katsuhiko Momoi, QA: Jon Rubin) Evangelism bugs found on Israel, Egypt, Libya, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, etc. This category defines sites which use Hebrew or Arabic writing scripts no matter where they are located physically. 5. Pacific Islands: (Owner: Katsuhiko Momoi, QA: Jon Rubin) Languages of the Pacific -- any of the languages classified under region/country names like Indonesia, Micronesia, Melanesia, Polynesia, etc. 6. The Americas: (Owner: Katsuhiko Momoi, QA: Jon Rubin) Evangelism bugs found on North, Central and South American sites. The sites in this cetgory use Spanish, Portuguese, Quechuan, or other languages of the Americas (except English) and are located in the above 3 regions. Spanish and Portuguese sites in Spain and Portugal should be classified under European. 6. US English: (Owner: Bob Clary, QA: Zach Lipton) English language sites in the United States. 7. Non-US English: (Owner: Katsuhiko Momoi, QA: Jon Rubin) English language sites in Canada, Australia, New Zealand.
Asa, can you work on this today?
Why doesn't anyone tell me this stuff?
Done. I think.
zach, the evangelism product owners will be moving the old "evangelism" component bugs to the new Tech Evangelism Product category. I am done with my bugs. Since you're the QA contact for US English, I thought that bclary had already talked to you about this.
Marking it fixed. If there is a glitch somewhere we may re-open this but the product and component names are in as we described above.

I mailed Tristan about this, but I'll put it here, too. How about a mozillazine article about the new structure? Just to make sure alot of people know that they can file regional evang bugs. Axel
I did submit an article about this to Mozillazine on the day this bug was resolved as fixed. But I have not seen my submission appear there yet. I also submitted Status update to tor. This item has appeared: http://www.mozilla.org/status/2001-08-15.html
