Open Badges Updates plus Website Changes and FixesPaul Withers | 1 week ago | Comments
Over the weekend
we announced two new open badges available for those who run user groups,
There is one that's generic for OpenNTF and one that's for OpenCode4Connections.
If you run a user group and would like either or both of these badges,
please contact Paul Withers (you've almost certainly got one social media
We're aware there
have been issues recently posting discussions, defect and feature requests
via the website and for a bit longer replying to any of these. Some work
has been done over recent days that should have resolved all those issues
now. The refactoring has been part of more significant streamlining in
the design, particularly around registration, password management and account
maangement. In time this will be extended further into capturing last login.
As ever with a site as long-running as OpenNTF, there are a large number
of old and possibly redundant accounts but currently no way to identify
them. This work will eventually allow us to manage the infrastructure better.
No significant changes will be occurring in the short term and we will
keep you apprised.
For the same reason
we will soon be reaching out to contributors to try to identify current
active projects. There will be a number of projects where the main project
Chef no longer works with IBM technologies, where the project has been
abandoned or superseded. This will allow us to keep the list of main projects
fresher as we go forward. This may mean we reach out for people to take
over projects, if they wish them to remain active, but rest assured nothing
will be removed without notice.
Updates To OpenNTF Website ContentPaul Withers | 4 months ago | Comments
Today we pushed up
some changes to the OpenNTF website. The previous area "IP and Legal"
has been split down into "IP" and "Legal". The Legal
area covers legalistic documents for aspects such as our bylaws, IP policy,
process and how to apply it, you should look instead at the IP area. A
lot of the content here has been restructured or slightly reworded to better
explain why we do it, why you want us to do it, and do make it less daunting
to implement. It may seem scary if you've not done it before, but in practice
it's very straightforward and our IP Manager Jesse Gallagher will help
you through any typically minor amendments, if they are needed.
updated all links within the site, but if you spot any or have ideas for
any improvements, please let us know either on the OpenNTF Slack chat or
posting to our @OpenNTF Twitter account.
