I think a lot of Lotus users want the same new feature/s for an existing project. For example, adding an upload file control for an existing application. So it would be a good idea to have a central place or "view" where people ask for new features for existing projects ...
When starting a new project, provide a zip file containing all required licensing information depending on the licensing type selected by the chef. For example, the zip file would contain LICENSE, NOTICE, readme.txt, and a blank .NTF file with all licensing text pre-populated. The chef would then just need to ...
Place a "More Like This" link in project home pages that will display a list of other projects that are similar to the one being viewed.
Should not be hard to realize, it helps users a bit to download a application easier.
One problem I, and some customers, experience is when we want to check out an app here. We can't unless we download it, then configure it, then find out there is no docs to install it or whatever.
If we had all the "final" versions running or accesible on a ...
Allow user to edit their own posts e.g. comments or bug reports.
Integrate Sametime into OpenNTF.
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 ...
Have a quarterly competition based upon a changing theme.
- write an application that demonstrates the usage of geolocation (Google Maps) in Notes.
- write an application in the category 'personal effectivity'
The theme of the competition should be announced one month before the period ...
Quote from http://openntf.org/Internal/home.nsf/dx/About_openNTF:
It took me a while to even find this page http://openntf.org/Internal/home.nsf/people.xsp on the site. It would be good to:
a) Highlight the owners, chefs, etc in a dedicated page that is easy to find
b) "approved contributor" means nothing unless they have actually contributed code (in fact, ...
For new projects it would be handy to have a clean starter template. The database should have a minimum interface for the Notes client.
I have uploaded an example which we use ourself:
This makes the delivered projects a bit more genuine (hey, this is an ...
For freelancers it can be of value to have your contacts available as a vCard.
For newbies or those who want to complete their toolset it can be handy to share development bookmarks.
For example the OneUI documentation: http://www-12.lotus.com/ldd/doc/oneuidoc/docpublic/index.htm
I guess a table with such refs can contribute to better projects.
Yes, just like Ideajam. It show's what's hot on OpenNTF...
Some people have already created presentations themselves about the goodies on OpenNTF http://www.lotusguru.com/lotusguru/LGBlog.nsf/d6plinks/20071106-78PLD2 .
I guess this demonstrates there is a need for a presentation (slideshow or leaflet (pdf) for print) that summarizes what is in store, and which can be distributed via mail.
The description field for a project differs from project to project.
A blueprint (a shortlist of questions to be answered) could make the descriptions become more identical in format. It will improve the quality of the information.
What does this application do?
Who is the ...
Alternatively (or additionally) OpenNTF could host some web apps in demo mode live.
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.
I would love to see a place where people can download:
Thanks for considering my idea.
