Realistically, we should probably have 2 or 3 volunteers that will agree
to submit at least 1 news item per month. Bryce shouldn't be the only
one. ;) It seems like it should be a fairly minimal commitment.
I'm willing to fill one of those spots myself. I'll throw together
something before the end of the week that talks about the persistent
undo history that the MIT students are working on, and link to their
page. Bryce, are you even still interested? On top of that, do you have
the time? Either way, it is not difficult to find a couple news worthy
items per month. Any other takers?
Work has been sucking my attention the past few months, but going
forward I think I'll be less time crunched. In any case, if people send
me news items directly, I usually am able to get to it within a few
It would save a huge amount of time to have prepared news items written
up (even if in broken english) and sent to me directly to draw from.
The text should be at least one paragraph, no more than 2-3 (if more is
needed, put the additional text onto a wiki page or somewhere, with a
link to it from the brief news item). Graphics to go along with the
stories is also nice to have, esp. if an icon can be created to be
included in the story itself. Then I can take these and do the html and
whatever to put them live on the site.
Bugs & Feature Requests:
Another area that generally needs attention is our bug and rfe trackers.
Agreed. Also, I'd like to emphasize that people can do bug triage even
if they do not have technical experience, as long as they have good
Inkscape know-how and can be friendly communicating with users.
I've been gaining a lot of experience doing bug triaging for Ubuntu's
Xorg (which like Inkscape has many, many bugs), and have a number of
ideas on how we could structure things to work much better that I'd love
to share with new bug triagers.
