I were thinking on what would be beneficial for every camp involved into
OpenSolaris and related development? What would be useful for NexentaOS,
BeleniX, SchilliX, marTux, SCXR, etc ?
I think having centralized place (bugzilla, bounty, project management,
calendar, etc) for OSS packages would be really beneficial for every
I came across launchpad.net and I think it could be a really great
idea to utilize it for OpenSolaris community. NexentaOS is already
registered there, the same way we could register
"opensolaris-generic" and other distros where we could collect all our
patches and together collaborate on ongoing issues.
Few great things about launchpad (as I see it):
1) It could coexist with existing bug-tracking systems, i.e. we don't
have to change NBTS to Malone for instance and re-integrate our internal
2) It provides integrated bounty system. So end user potentially
could pay cache for particular fix in his favorite distro;
3) Its well done.
