Re: [tdf-discuss] The need of a central employment-office-like web structure for TDF/LibO volunteers
the system could be a bug tracker with a less technical UI than BZ, but
I think a wiki with a good template could be enough. Why do you say
Because you have to navigate *a lot* through the currently on line wiki
before finding the info a contributor may need in order to contribute.
Too many clicks, IMO.
A easier wiki template may do the trick, but it should be bare to the
bone, because it's just a matter of going directly to the point:
contributing according to one's skills and available time.
If I have, let's say, 1 free hour to contribute, I should be able to
find fast whatever task I can complete in such an hour. If I have 1 free
day, I should be able to find fast whatever task has a 1 day estimated
time for its completion.
However, it's absolutely important that no potential contributor's time
is wasted in *finding how to contribute". You know, time is money. ;-)
This statement is true both for the core contributor and the casual or
If the project would have such a central system for the management of
the contributions, I think there would be a more efficient work flow
too, because *everybody* would know who is in charge for a task, what
progress has been made and what is still missing.
It may be useful to track contribution too, for future TDF applications
and reviews of such applications. Everything would be (sufficiently) public.
