[Ann] New Yahoo Group: REALbasic Open Source Repository

From: Frank Bitterlich
Hi list,

I have just created a new Yahoo group that is meant as a home for
open-source development of REALbasic components, such as modules,
classes, and plug-ins.

It can be found here:
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/RBOpenSource/

I was inspired to do this by a message from Fabian Rueger earlier today
on this list in which he wrote:
> ... which brings up again the desire for a well organized RB open

I whole-heartedly agree with that statement. And while I don't know if a
Yahoo-group can fulfill the requirement of "well organized", at least
it's a start.

Now if you have anything to contribute - maybe some class or plug-in you
want to release as open-source but never had the time to finish it, or
have a great idea for a plug-in but don't know how to start - please let
the group know.

Thanks!

Cheers,
Frank+++

I would highly recommend using SourceForge instead. It is designed
exactly for this sort of thing, and has a number of features you
won't find on Yahoo:

- as many mailing lists as you need with no ads (!)
- CVS server, if you want it
- bug tracking system
- integrated search engine
- other stuff I haven't had use for yet, but may someday

It's become the standard place for most open-source projects in the
world. And of course it's free too. Please check it out.

Cheers,
- Joe

Yes, I thought of using tat instead, but I was a little intimidated by
the truckload of features they offer :) If this project doesn't die by
lack of interest, I'll probably switch.

Thanks for the tip so far...

I would recommend SourceForge either. While I'm very interested in this
concept, I'm not going to bother using a Yahoo group for this, so unless it
moves to SourceForge (or something similar), I just won't bother.

Okay, okay, you convinced me :) Expect a SourceForge announcement on
this list soon...

Hey Frank,

Great to see a place like this, however I don't think Yahoo is the right
place to do it. First you need to signup which not everyone wants to do,
secondly you need to deal with pop-up ads and lastly if you have a yahoo
address you need to deal with unwanted spam...

My suggestion is this... I have a site that is similar to what you are
talking about except for Lasso web software. Check it out at
<http://www.lassotracker.com/> If anyone is interested I could set up a Real
Basic site just like this, then you wouldn't have to deal with pop-ups or
spam or signing up. You would have to signup to post a solution/snippet/etc
but of course the info would remain confidential.

Let me know your thoughts and if you think it is good than I can work on it
this weekend.

Regards,
Phil
