It would be useful to have some sort of "activeness" indicator(s) for a project. For example, is the project still being developed and/or supported? Are there future releases planned? I'm thinking of the situation where you see a project that hasn't been touched for say 2 years. It would be ...
It would be nice to have a "follow" function that would allow me to subscribe to a project and receive notifications of updates, releases, discussions and so on. This could help to increase activity, and perhaps more importantly, community, around a project.
Perhaps a daily or weekly digest might ...
Project owners should be able to define the tasks they need help with.
These open tasks should be displayed in each project and/or a global list accessible via the home page.
OpenNTF should provide on request two databases hosted on an OpenNTF development server.
In one database contributors can do the actual development, share code and try the app over HTTP.
A second database (wiki or discussion) can be used to manage internal project information, e.g. specs.
Projects should have a donate button so that consumers can donate money to the project contributors (e.g. via credit card, paypal, ...).
Should not be hard to realize, it helps users a bit to download a application easier.
Often I abandon looking at an otherwise promising OpenNTF project because there's no screenshot or no documentation.
Sometimes I'll be looking for an upgrade to something that I'm already using. In those cases, I'm actually in a position to provide a working screenshot or a "review" or other documentation. ...
I'd like to see some sort of brief description which tells me what the Apache license means and what the GPL license means.
When I go to the download page I see the two categories but I've got no idea what they "really" mean, or what the difference ...
Get a notification if a new project is created under a selected app category predefined in user profile
Get a notification of a new project. It should be possible to enable or disable any notifications. It should be possible to select one or more application categories.
Just like the Lotus Awards / Teamstudio Awards but then for open source projects only. Finalists won't receive prizes, just the honor to get mentioned.
Yes, just like Ideajam. It show's what's hot on OpenNTF...
Alternatively (or additionally) OpenNTF could host some web apps in demo mode live.
I'd like to see a better way of sorting and locating projects. Something like the two-dimensional selection system used on many sites including YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/videos)
First you select the attribute that you want to sort on - rating, downloads, reviews, activity and so on.
Second you select ...
Give contributors the recognition and visiblity they deserve by highlighting 1 or some contributors of the quarter.
We could determine this by the number of new releases, filed defect reports, filed feature requests, blog posts, activity level of project, etc.
How about having an OpenNTF day once per year when coordinated activities take place with a goal of promoting awareness of OpenNTF? All activities would obviously be optional and open to anyone who want to promote OpenNTF.
Promotion on social networks such as Facebook & LinkedIn. Perhaps ...
This may be a controversial one, but from my point of view it's pretty important.
There have been a few instances in recent times where project owners have, for one reason or another, deleted their own projects. I think this is quite troubling from a governance perspective, since it ...
New project UI : add a button to add the HTML code for inline images / embedded youtube video etc in the body fields
