I just posted this to the Gentoo development list, but I thought other projects could use a similar idea so I decided to add it to my blog.
I’m sure I’m not the only one with a number of projects I’ll never get to, but I’d really like them to happen anyway. I suggest we create some sort of page that aggregates all of these personal projects together, so anyone can browse through them and look for stuff that sounds fun.
The goal is to increase contributions from outside by giving them a ready list of projects of all sizes and difficulty levels to work on, projects that go beyond what happens at Bugday. Further, it could also help current Gentoo developers who are bored or have lost interest in what they’re doing by helping them to find somewhere new to contribute.
A prototype with just my projects is at http://dev.gentoo.org/~dberkholz/proj/
Thanks for your comments!
