Pulling the Plug

A session at Open Source Bridge 2011

Tuesday 21st June, 2011

2:30pm to 3:15pm (PST)

The end-of-life portion of a product’s life-cycle is certainly the least glorious, but it doesn’t have to be something approached with sorrow or dread. This talk will be focused on the issues Mozilla is facing with its conglomeration of 130+ websites. We will look at the organization’s process of creating an oversight committee for all of these websites, as well as the subgroup responsible for identifying and taking down websites that no longer supported the organization’s current mission. We will discuss the privacy, security and political issues that the organization has faced during the removal of a website, as well as the act of documenting a website’s role and purpose in the Mozilla Website Archive. Finally, we’ll look at the process of defining end-of-life plans for all new campaign websites prior to launch.
