Why is this a "Hot Topic"?

    Was this added to Hot Topics by mistake? Or has "Hot Topics" been expanded to include "How to contribute" articles?

    I thought Hot Topics were supposed to be the latest Firefox help and troubleshooting issues, with a main goal being to deflect more questions from the forums (based on what Kadir wrote in bug 816966).

    Hi Alice,

    I added it, to encourage users looking for this information to contribute. Since Firefox OS isn't supported yet (nothing to deflect) and we had a lot of press this week.

    So, I am bending the definition of a Hot Topic for this project, what do you think?

    Thanks! Michelle

    I think this better fits under Mozilla News. I removed it from hot topics and made it the first item under news.
