Sheppy, Janet and a group of volunteers have been expanding our developer-oriented documentation on MDN, both for Firefox/Gecko-specific features and for open Web standards. As the docs community grows, we are getting interest from other vendors, like Google, to contribute and find ways to do more together. We would like to see a world where all the vendors working on open Web technologies bring their doc writers together to create content that benefits all Web developers -- and Mozilla is the best organization to pull it off. But there are questions about ownership, branding and social structure that we need to sort out. We hope to get the discussion started with Mozillians, so we can better prepare a plan to share with Google, Adobe, Opera and Microsoft to see if we can make something happen.
