GNOME Annual Report 2008 Kickoff

It’s time to start working on our 2008 annual report (actually, we’re already late…)! Last year we had a very nice report. So, let’s make it even better this year! I’ve created a wiki page to organize the work. The current content is just an initial proposal. Feel free to add your ideas there.

Any kind of contribution is welcome! There are several ways to help:

  • Assign yourself to write one of the sections
  • Add links, references and other information sources to help writers to produce the content
  • Add new ideas, suggest, review the content
  • Add links to high resolution photos of GNOME people
  • Anything else! :-)

I’ll soon start to directly contact some people for specific tasks (as this is a more effective way of getting volunteers). Anyway, if you want to help and/or have any questions, feel free to contact me.

  1. Hi Lucas…I couldn’t find your email so this is just a general question. How does a *user* go about requesting features in GNOME? I wrote a blog about some things (six to be exact) I would like to suggest located at . It’s a pretty short read.

  2. @Eric, thanks for the feedback. Unfortunately, we no official way for getting user feedback (other than the usual bug reports). We should definitely try to do something in this regard. Getting high-quality feedback from users is a very challenging topic for opensource projects.
