Consensus required for resource ownership of

Dear community members,
As part of MCWS policy, we need to have documented owner(s) for infrastructure

There is this bugzilla bug which is for Mozilla India.

I’ll copy tad’s message in that:

We need your help in identifying who your community has given the authority
to manage the services we provide you.

In the situation that a decision needs to be made or action needs to be
taken in regards to your service (eg someone is requesting an email on your
community domain) we need the name(s) of the person who can say yes or no,
or initiate change requests.

Your community can identify more than one person who has the authority to
make decisions regarding your services. We will reach out to every person
listed as “owner” for your service. Please be aware though that if you
identify more than one person, we will act based on the first response we
get. The persons named must be responsive in a timely manner. These
persons will also be able to request changes to the owners list moving

You can use this bug to discuss who these names should be, or you can use
whatever discussion channel your community prefers. We only ask that someone
from your community responds within 30 days to let us know a discussion is
happening. If we don’t get any sort of response within 30 days we will
assume your community is inactive and start the process to deactivate your

You can take more than 30 days to give a final answer. Once we’ve received a
response we will recognize the community is active and support you in coming
to a decision that is right for your community.

Discussion and questions about this process should go on this Discourse
thread -

If you need to reach out to us privately, you can send an email to

In short:

  • Communities have 30 days to start the discussion
  • It’s up to communities to appoint their resource owner(s)
  • These owners must be responsive and will have the authority to request
    changes to the serivces owners list
  • We will support communities in making their decision, including arranging
    conflict resolution if necessary.
  • Please cc any active members of your community that we’ve missed

This discussion is to reach at a consensus on who can become these resource owners.

There is a parallel conversation on telegram

It will be good to do this exercise now because later when the community portal is setup we’ll have to similarly nominate group contacts.


Have updated the bug putting myself and @ranjithraj as the documented owners till there is some activity for or against either of us.

As per the discussion on the telegram channel, Akshay and Ranjith have shown interested and commitment to take up ownership of responsibility.
I express my consent for this.
Glad to have these guys manage things at the India community!


As per various discussions on this, I support @asdofindia and @ranjithraj in handling the mozillaindia community through ownership.
