OpenNTF Charity for Copyright Ownership

:July2010
: license
I recently wasted many hours trying to take over the dormant DominoTeamMailbox template that hadn't received an update in over a year. In the end, I got buried in all kinds of unnecessary hassle regarding Intellectual Property and Copyright and for this, and a other reasons, I pulled my code ...

Sign all projects (nsf/ntf) with an OpenNTF id

:July2010
: sign, database, security
would be nice not to have trust all those tropical signatures from everyone when opening a downloaded application

Activeness indicator

:July2010
: project, indicator, july2010
 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 ...

:July2010
: ideajam, applications
a permanent ideajam for new application types can be the feed for new application projects on OpenNTF. Who can deliver an app for a high demand?

Starter database/templateView Linked Idea

:July2010
: template, ntf
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:
 
http://www.openntf.org/Projects/pmt.nsf/29b713283ca92bf5862570ef00653b4e/F129F42459FD6FDD862576E1006B7B45
 
This makes the delivered projects a bit more genuine (hey, this is an ...

Disallow project deletion by project owners

:July2010
: project, governance, july2010
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 ...

Contact page for OpenNTF

:July2010
: contact, email
I know you guys probably do not want to have your mailbox spammed but a contact page to drop your 'general' questions would be nice to have.

Brief Explanation of license types

:July2010
: licensing, apache, gpl, july2010
 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 ...

:July2010

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.

:July2010
: july2010
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.

Make openntf DB available

:July2010
: openntf, template, xpages
why can´t we get template from the http://openntf.org/Internal/home.nsf   site ?

LinkJam for development

:July2010
: linkjam, delicious, bookmarks, development
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.

Contibutor vs "approved" contibutor - better recognition

:July2010
: contibutors
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
and
b) "approved contributor" means nothing unless they have actually contributed code (in fact, ...

Sametime integration

:July2010
: sametime
Integrate Sametime into OpenNTF.

Contributed Codebin for a project.

:July2010
: project
A form to contribute new code for an existing project. The form would require specification of added/changed design elements. Form would email Project lead to consider for next release. Ability to upload .nsf with applied enhancements would be nice.

Downloadable leaflet / presentation on good projects

:July2010
: presentation, summary
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.
