There are a lot of Linux communities all over the globe filled with really nice people who just want to help others. Typically these people either can’t (or don’t feel comfortable) coding, and I’d love to harness some of that potential by adding a huge number of new application reviews to the ODRS. At the moment we have about 1100 reviews, mostly covering the more popular applications, and also mostly written in English.
What I would love is for a few groups of people to come together for their next LUG/outreach/InstallFest and sit down together somewhere cozy and write a few reviews. Bonus points if you use a less-well-known application, and even more points if you can write in a language other than English. Submitting a review is easy; just open up GNOME Software, find the application, and click ‘Write a Review‘ at the bottom of the page.
Application reviews help new users what to install, and the star ratings you give means we can return useful search results full of great applications. Please write an email, ask about helping the ODRS, and perhaps you can help a lot of new users next time you meet with your Linuxy friends.
