The purpose of this site is to let everyone have a opportunity to participate. Lurk if you feel the need, but any input or suggestion or a simple salutation is a sign that people are actively interested in what we are doing. I want to make this whole site/group better, and better able to work together in many different ways. I want to make some changes to our system, and to add some tools to our site suite. Some ideas of things that I want and I think would be useful for everyone are:
- Task assignment list
- More information on our projects
- Listing of the groups leadership hierarchy
- List of technologies we use (perhaps a tool suite)
- Thank you page and any affiliations
- Well thought out coding style and project process
- Some tutorials, and getting started help
- Help wanted section
- Project calender
- IRC channel
Feel free to tell me what more we should do, or if anything here if useless. I was also thinking of adding a project managment portal, and thats a list of some FOSS versions that I’ve found. I also want to perhaps start some more online activities to generate a more robust community.
Any time you want to talk about GCC related things, post them here or in the BBS. I want questions and discussions to be public, and searchable. This enables more people to be in the know about whats going on and to also learn how we do things. I would like to bring back the weekly online internet chats. It seemed that that was good way for people to interact. If/When I get an IRC channel up, I’ll most likely be a constant in the room, and if a few other people would also agree to man the chat room, we could possibly branch out more easily since newcomers would have a fast and easy way to directly communicate with members.
