objective: 1) The es-MX l10n team lacks organization and education about the process and the tools used in performing l10n tasks. This is mostly because it has been in rebuilding for a period of time. 2) The es-MX l10n team is now dispersed between two countries: Mexico and the U.S. They need to meet and work together in person to determine the future of l10n. 3) Native language l10n teams in Mexico ​​also lack training with Pootle and l10n process. Those who see becoming an official release of Firefox also need guidance to begin to move towards that goal.
