Surveys galore – be they official or not

Surveys galore! There are now official Mozilla surveys available for all to do. The first one talks about your views on Mozilla and the community.

Psst… If you don’t mind doing a Thunderbird-specific one that I myself wrote up at the end-Oct 07, you can still do so by the way. But while mine’s not official, (and probably not done up as well since it’s a one-man operation) there will still be results coming up, along with an analysis done up by me. –not so soon though; my next week at university is packed!

Btw, the number of complete responses has rose past 625. And oh, the survey I did up, was just for fun; it does not help me in any of my homework now at all, be they projects or papers, none whatsoever. 🙁

Edit: The survey has been closed as of ~1pm UTC on 18 Nov 07. It has ~689 complete responses, and exactly 1,000 if partial ones are included.

Some general news on Thunderbird and Calendar

1. Thunderbird 2 survey: Progress

The survey (v1) on Thunderbird 2 is still online, with more than 370 respondents so far. If you haven’t filled it up, please take around 10 minutes to do so. It comprises 10 questions, some optional. An analysis of the results will follow later. Discussions can be found on Mozilla Labs forum or MozillaZine forums.

2. Calendar: A call to action (cross-posted)

The Calendar team has written a blog post requesting for user contributions on end-user documentation, such as installation of Sunbird / Lightning and switching between different calendar views. They add that different types of help could be provided, "either by writing a tutorial, contributing screenshots or thinking of other things that could be documented".

3. David Ascher: MailCo Jobs (cross-posted)

David Ascher has a list of job descriptions for those looking to join the newly-formed subsidiary focusing on Thunderbird development. Experience in Mozilla technologies / process of development is preferred. As he goes, "We are going to be a small team (probably fewer than 10 people in the first year), with, from day 1, an awesome responsibility towards hundreds of contributors, tens of thousands of beta testers, and millions of users.".

Edit 1: Some details added, spelling & grammar fixes.

Edit 2: Updated the borked links to installation of Sunbird or Lightning.

Final edit: The number of respondents has exceeded an amazing 550 (complete responses; >800 if partial ones are included) in the space of merely a week since it began on ~29 Oct 07. It will close by before the end of November or when the limit of ~1,000 complete responses is reached. Once again, I would like to thank the community for hitting this number in such a short period of time!
