To: Mozdev Project Owners List project_owners@mozdev.org


Sorry I'm late to the conversation (I've been away), but I would be
interested in volunteering in the extra time that I sometimes have. I might
not have too much time (at least an hour a week, though). I can help
moderate the mailing list if you still need help with that, or help with
other stuff (I have a bit of php experience, and a bit more web development
experience...but a lot of people here can probably also say that).

Also, Arturo (and everyone else): I'm not sure if I'm just boring everyone
by bringing this up again (or if this might be helpful to you), but I found
out a few things about the FCKeditor problem a few months ago:

   - Doug was having the same troubles, but he fixed it:
   https://www.mozdev.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=18975#c18
   - In the initial Drupal roll out (
   https://www.mozdev.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=17703#c2), before Doug fixed
   that bug, the Apache mod_rewrite stuff pertaining to Drupal (see link)
   didn't serve xml files (like the one FCKeditor needs and can't find)
   statically with all the other static files like it should have, but
   redirected them to Drupal (which is what it is doing now - and Drupal thinks
   that it is a Drupal page, can't find it in its DB, and serves up a 404).
   - As far as I can remember, we've been having this problem ever since
   Mozdev began locking down PHP usage and only allowing it for approved
   projects. I'm not sure if someone was messing with the mod_rewrite stuff,
   and that caused this, or if it's something totally different.

 Hi!

 Mozdev needs you! We need more volunteers to help keep the site alive.
 At the moment I'm doing all the day to day stuff (mostly mailist
 moderation). Since Axel got his new job sometime back he hasn't been
 able to help me prune the spam and answer questions sent to the
 feedb...@mozdev.org address. The last time there was a call for
 volunteers a handful responded (but only two of us actually turned up).
 I hope that we get significantly more volunteers this time round because
 with more people it's easier to spread the load around!

 So who should volunteer?
 * People who can commit to at least an hour per week.
 * People who know how to moderate a mailman mailing list (this shouldn't
 be too difficult for most of you).
 ** This shouldn't take more than 5 minutes a day.
 * People who have some sort of sysadmin perspective, that is with
 experience administrating a site remotely.
 * People who know how to administer a multi-site Drupal installation.
 ** We're a bit handicapped as nobody around knows how to manage Drupal
 and in particular to fix the FCKEditor problem.
 * People who know Mercurial configuration and setting up.

 At the moment I'm trying to get in touch with our ex-sysadmin in order
 to learn how to set up a new project. If I can manage that I'll do a
 write up so that other peole can help me do this.

 I can't do this all by myself. Any help will be received with extreme
 gratitude!

I've set up a Wiki page for the current round of volunteers:

http://www.mozdev.org/drupal/wiki/Mozdev-Volunteers
linked to from
http://www.mozdev.org/drupal/wiki/Main-Page

The 2009 volunteer list might still have some useful information:
http://www.mozdev.org/drupal/wiki/Mozdev-Transition-Roles-Takeover#SiteManagementTeamRecurringTasks

TODO:
1. Set up a mailing list for volunteer admin discussion.
2. Arrange for Arturo to look at the FCKEditor problem.
3. Discuss with Vinicius on Mozdev PHP security
4. Set up BenoitRen as a moderator for feedback@

I keep forgetting to do things. If these things aren't done by next
Monday, someone remind me.

Still haven't found out how to approve and set up a new project. I
managed to make a unstarted project disappear, except that it's still
listed at http://www.mozdev.org/projects/unstarted.html

Oh wait it isn't there today. Must be some sort of caching issue.

 Would you like to help moderate the Feedback mailing list? It involves
 mostly deleting spam and approving the very occasional legitimate

Sure, set up a new mailing list if you want.

BTW, I think moderating the mailing list is a pain, but isn't the most pressing 
need.  If we can't start new projects or keep the server secure and running 
then having a functioning mailing list isn't a big deal :)

Good point. No reply from Doug yet. I'll try email again again on

Yeah I guess so.

For the feedback list, just reject all subscriptions (except your own of
course). It's just there for the (volunteer) administrators to keep
track of legitimate incoming email. The most tedious bit is to check the
pending incoming and delete all the spam (99.5%) and let through real
email (e.g. reporting problems). When I first got started I got a bit
glazed-eye and accidentally deleted a couple of non-spam.
