This is a page where we can discuss the tools that we have and that we need.
- a forum that is linked to the mailing list. Every posting on the list is posted to the forum, and every post on the forum to the list.
- This FudForum Mailing List Manager looks interesting: http://cvs.prohost.org/index.php/Mailing_List_Manager
- where forum-users can subscribe to certain topics to get an email when answers have been posted
- a poll on the website so we can ask users what they want
- RSS feed with the news
- integration with gnome bugzilla for feature requests? how can we do that?
- a place to collect files such as 'made with' icons, language files, snippets files
Here are some Bluefish 2 syntax highlighting definitions for HAML & SASS (http://haml-lang.com/)
Put them in /usr/share/bluefish/bflang/ or wherever your distro puts Bluefish lang files.
Also included is a Ubuntu mime type definition for .sass and .haml files. Put it in /usr/share/mime/packages/ then run sudo update-mime /usr/share/mime
- all sites (wiki, main site and forums) should use the same navigation on the left and the same colors
- administration of all sites must be made by CORE developers, in a manner so no one can take his toys and leave.
We would not like to lose the wiki for example. - or better we host the sites on general servers (e.g. sourceforge.net) and multiple people have the admin account. Core developers have more things to do ;-)
Community Goals and Objectives
- The purpose of the user community is not to give more work for developers. They already have enough to occupy them.
- The purpose of the community is to enable users to help each other ... And help as much as possible the Bluefish's development team.
- The purpose of the community is to offer a place for the users to share snippets and other stuff that can be easily added/imported, without the need for a developer to put to svn or to the main site. Let's say unofficial addons.
Notes and comments
- we use only free tools (b.t.w. Joomla is free!)
- it is possible to embed a free forum in mediawiki.
- FudForum, reported by Anita, can be used with Mediawiki.
- also if a bigger CMS is to be used, we can use Drupal.
- Smaller cms, with a lot of addons, and that can be designed light and nice - textpattern. http://www.textpattern.com/
- a forum could be nice but for us probably lists are faster and nicer - that's why we need both and integrated
