Independent Status Reports (2 November, 2004) is an international community effort. It may have originated in the US, but 2 of the core admins are based in Europe. Project requests come in from all continents. Project owners speak many languages. This is the world we live in. For software to succeed, it has to have the capability to reach out globally. Mozilla has known this for a long time, and the latest efforts to host Firefox locales in CVS and have official localized builds of Firefox 1.0 is just another step for Mozilla and Mozilla technologies to make an impact all over the world.

Note: If anyone has an update that they would like included in the next report, go here, or have any feedback on the reports in general, feel free to contact us.
