To do a quickscan if a Project on OpenTF is interesting I always go through the screenshots before I start downloading a release.
Unfortunately this screenshots require a lot of navigation back and forth.
Easier navigation between different screenshots would help me ...
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 ...
There are a lot of projects, which you can use, but not every one is ready to be deployed. Some are frameworks, some are just not ready (yet).
It would be great to distinguish them so you can only browse the "drop it into your domino ...
Similar to the "Theme Repository" idea (linked with this idea).
I suggest that a section of OpenNTF be set aside for XPages custom controls.
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.
It's hard to find a project with the current search method. Currently you can search only with keywords and select some areas. You need to be able to search by Project. this would include the description and title. I don't need the forums, comments, etc.
My current username is not my real name, since the correct one is connected to an old email address which I cannot access any longer.
It would be nice that my email is unique identifier, and that I would be able to change my name whenever I want to.
add field there we can list which techniques have been used building this app
OpenNTF should allow for more collaborative work on open source projects on OpenNTF.Org. There should be code control and version management including check-in/check-out, branch and merge, audit trail of code changes and rollback, etc. for design elements.
There are some theoretic technical alternatives for which existing ...
When rebuilding the project UI I would like to suggest that each project be given it's own IdeaJam instance integrated into the new UI.
The IdeaJam instance could replace the bug and feature requests of the current project infrastructure by having idea spaces for these areas.
For feature ...
OpenNTF should improve the user experience of the home page:
- The UI should look more modern and clearer
- Full text search needs to be a first class citizen to find content, people etc.
- Recent content (projects, samples, blog entries, ideas) should be shown
Lotus Notes Application to manage all Domino design elements and templates, using an Open Source version control back end (like Subversion.)
The emphasis for this idea is to use a Domino application as a front-end for managing and deploying all design elements and have them stored in an Open Source ...
Projects should have a donate button so that consumers can donate money to the project contributors (e.g. via credit card, paypal, ...).
I've never understood the word 'testimonials' within a project. I think everybody knows about writing reviews.
I would love to see a place where people can download:
Thanks for considering my idea.
