As we all know,
Reps are not a power structure over other Mozillians; instead, they are here to help, empower and inspire people to contribute to Mozilla projects.
and Mozilla wants to enable radical participation.
Therefore, it should be a right question to ask “What are the things that only a rep can do that a mozillian (vouched) should not be able to do”
From what I see being enforced, the following is a provisional list of that.
- File budget request
- File swag request
Create events on the reps portal(this is being addressed in the new community portal)
Sign an NDA and have access to whatever NDA’d information lies out there.(Staff can vouch mozillians)
Join Mozilla slack? (Can reps do this?)(not specific to Reps program - see wiki)
View bugs related to the reps program(Swag and Budget Requests are private as explained here - Reps Portal and general Reps issues and tasks are open)
Access various infrastructure behind the IAM where NDA clearance is required.(See NDA point above. This is not automatic)
Vouch a reps application(This is probably being corrected)
- Nominate someone for “mozillian of the month”.
- Access the group chats of reps program on Telegram, etc.
I’ll make this post a community wiki so that you can add to this list or remove from it. (Please use strikethrough to remove items like I’ve shown)
Which of these are being unfairly denied to mozillians? Which do you think has to have a rethink?
