Linux Gazette : Project Status

...making Linux just a little more fun!

Project Status

Updated Sat Aug 8 2009

[ NOTE: If you're a new volunteer, you'll most likely need to set up SVN and read the Proofing FAQ (not just for proofers - contains lots of good material on editing, etc.) Please send your public SSH key and short bio, preferably including a ~200x200 picture (see examples) to the Editor. ]

This list shows the status of some of the current projects at the Linux Gazette; more will be added as time goes on. Each project below is coded by color, representing its status:

Still in the conceptual stage, or simply needs someone to run it. Click on the "Description" link to see the details, and click on the "Contact" link if you're interested in becoming the maintainer for it.
Already has a maintainer, but needs more volunteers to support it. The "Contact" link will put you in touch with the maintainer.
Delayed or stopped due to a problem other than lack of volunteers (it may, for example, require some expertise that we don't have available.) Please check the "Details" link and jump in if you can help!
Running fine, and has enough volunteers supporting it.

Anyone with ideas for improving LG, or adding useful projects to this list, please contact the Editor. More categories/colors may be added if the need for them becomes apparent.
