GNOME Miro Community status - 3/31/2010

Note: This is an old post in a blog with a lot of posts. The world has changed, technologies have changed, and I've changed. It's likely this is out of date and not representative. Let me know if you think this is something that needs updating.

The article I wrote for GNOME Journal about GNOME Miro Community went live yesterday. You can read it here. It's a great introduction to why I created GNOME Miro Community, what can be done with it, and how you can help. Many thanks to Sumana and Paul for their help with getting it published!

While working on that article and the screenshot, I fixed a few templates and some of the CSS (with the help of Parker from OpenHatch). There should be RSS feed links on all of the listing pages now. Additionally, I did a pass through all the videos and removed ones that have disappeared.

Sumana pointed out that in order to submit a video to the site, you had to be logged in. That was a mistake--I really apologize. In order for this site to be useful to as many people as possible, it's important not to have barriers to video submission like that. If you balked at having to sign in while submitting a video, please try again.

There are two kinds of videos I'm really interested in adding to the site:

  • up-to-date videos showing GNOME Shell, GNOME Activity Journal, and Zeitgeist that show new functionality added recently and specify which version is being demonstrated,

  • howto, tutorial and screencast videos for important things that need more of a spotlight; for example, accessibility

If you have anything that fills these needs, submit a video or send me an email!
