MWC 2013

With Firefox OS scheduled to have a major presence at Mobile World Congress 2013, it's important that we have a fairly thorough suite of documentation for its various key components. This page will help us track what those components are, who's working on them, and what their statuses are.

Important note: The documentation team will do its best to have as much of what's listed on this page covered as possible prior to MWC. We can't promise to have everything done, so it's extremely important that if you see something on this list that won't be ready to document, won't be ready to use, or won't be urgently needed before MWC is labeled as such! We need to be able to prioritize this list so we can allocate our writers efficiently.
