A few things that can be added to Projects display by ramaddan on Thu, Mar 20, 2008 @ 22:22 EDT (3 replies)

Site is coming along nicely.

I just thought that a few things could be added to make things more organized.

When adding a new project, you could also ask the user for the following:

- License type
- Preferred language (such as Java, C, C#, Python, etc...)

Also, if you could make the browse projects function a bit more intuitive, as my mind relegated it as a search function, and it took me a bit of time to figure out that I could have just clicked on the browse next to the search function to view projects.

All in all, nice site.

External bug trackers integration by DawnLight on Tue, Dec 8, 2009 @ 06:28 EST
Dear ones,

I think that it would be beneficial to have external bug tracker integration. Kind of like what happens in

This is having the ability to attach bugs from various bug trackers of FOSS projects to the FOSSFactory project.

For example, a FOSSFactory project could be simply fixing a certain bug in GNOME or KDE or that it will include or depend on the fixing of several different bugs.

Simply supplying the address to the bug in the bug tracker is OK because that is always unique, but the benefits in this feature are in the automatic importing of data about the bug and changes to that data, like:
1. Importing of the bug's name and if it changes
2. Updating the links and data whenever bugs turn out to be duplicates and are marked as such.
3. Tracking of the bugs status

I've already created several FOSSFactory projects where each of them is about fixing a specific bug.

BTW I'm sure you've already thought of this, but I thought you'd like the reassurance.
Add / edit profile name by robaugustin on Sat, Dec 10, 2011 @ 03:17 EST

I wasn't able to find an option to add or edit profile settings like name, email, password... it's also not noted anywhere on the signup page that changing that info isn't possible once you've signed up. If this is not implemented yet (I might have missed it?), I think it would be a good idea to add it.

Great site by the way. Thanks for your work!
