Some additions to have made

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
  • Wiki

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.

Thoughts? Ideas?

One thought on “Some additions to have made”

  1. I definitely agree with all of your concerns and had most of them in mind myself. With juggling all other things I just have not been able to mention a lot of them outright. I think that all of the things you listed either should be incorporated fully or should be merged with other ideas. One thing I want to stress is the ease of navigation and ultimately the good organization of the site/group. All of these things can be accomplished successfully if we all work together give input as you are mentioning and think about these changes before implementing them. This is the time for planning these ideas and changes thoroughly so that we know exactly what the end results will be.

    a good thing that might help us get these things accomplished is organizing these into groups…ive done this a little below:

    Members page:
    * Listing of the groups leadership hierarchy
    Projects page:
    * Task assignment list
    * More information on our projects
    * Well thought out coding style and project process
    * Project calender — this could go here and the home page
    — the following could go here(projects) or in the wiki/resources page
    * List of technologies we use (perahaps a tool suite)
    * Some tutorials, and getting started help
    Resources:
    * Wiki
    * List of technologies we use (perahaps a tool suite)
    * Some tutorials, and getting started help
    other:
    * Help wanted section > could possibly also have a side section on home page with a few of most needed/recent listings
    * IRC channel
    * Thank you page and any affiliations
