Well, hopefully I've been something more than a figurehead ;-)

Aside from meetings, conferences, and a good chunk of time working with Netscape, I've been spending a good amount of time working with other companies using Mozilla and/or wondering how to get involved in Mozilla development. This is a more complicated question for a company development team than it is for an individual hacker.

I also spend a lot of time trying to forge consensus about mozilla.,org policies and procesures, and beginning to document them. The Review and Super-review FAQ <http://www.mozilla.org/ha…king/code-review-faq.html> may not seem that complex, but actually writting something down, tracking down the people involved, verifying how things actually work, and developing consensus on how they ought work is a very time consuming task.

As to the future, I'm not sure what sort of job I'll have. I am delighted to have a break. I started at Netscape back in its dim pre-history and am very happy to have a rest. The Mozilla project is both important and filled with great people. I plan to stay involved.
