At the Firefox Hackathon in Zurich we used The Janitor to contribute to Firefox. It’s important to note that it’s still in alpha and invite-only. The Janitor was started by Jan Keromnes, a Mozilla employee. While still in an alpha state, Jan gave us access to it so we could test run it at our hackathon.

You can find it here. With these remarks in mind, we started to define goals for 2016. Since there are a lot of changes within one year, the goals will currently only focus on the first part of the year. Then we can evaluate them, shift metrics if needed, and define new goals. This allows us…read more
