There are a number of roles within the MDN community that have specific responsibilities.
- Localization driver role
- An MDN localization driver coordinates and leads documentation activities on MDN for a particular language, or locale. They stay informed about the documentation structure in the MDN, the interests of translators, and of Mozilla. They do not have to do all translation work related to their locale themselves, and in fact, they are encouraged to gather a group of contributors interested in translating, and coordinate tasks among the group. See the Localization projects page for a list of active locale and current l10n drivers.
- MDN administrator role
- Of the roles on MDN, the role of administrator, or admin, is that with the highest permission level. Admins can use all features of the site's platform, and even have limited access to the data structures behind the scenes. This article describes what admins can do and how you can talk to one to get help with one of those things.
- Mentor role
- An MDN mentor is a person committed to helping new contributors in a particular topic area and leading documentation work on MDN in that topic area. Mentors stay informed about the priorities and contribution activities in their topic area.
