Ladies and gentlemen,
I would like to announce you ... the EPrints Forums (for developers)!
The EP-Tech mailing-list is a good place to seek for help to
install/configure the problem and even to report bugs. But it is not an
appropriate tool to have in-depth conversations about, for instance, new
features for the software. So I have decided to set-up a forum where
people can ask questions, bring ideas or make announcements (you will
see there are different post categories).
Important note: the forum DOES NOT replace the EP-Tech mailing-list.
This is a complimentary tool.
*What is it for?*
To discuss new features/ideas/directions for EPrints. The forum aims to
discuss ideas around the development of the software only at this stage.
** To discuss installation/configuration problems, please keep on using
the mailing-list **
*How can I use it?*
The forum is open to everybody - you don't need to sign up to post but I
highly encourage to -at least- sign in with your Google/Facebook/Yahoo
account to keep a trace of who's starting a conversation.
You may also vote on posts - a useful way to view popular issues/features.
*Where is it?*
http://forum.eprints.org/ will redirect you to the forum.
*What happens next?*
I will be setting-up some extra forums in the near future to allow more
narrowed-down topics (e.g. a divide between short-term and long-term
I am also in the process of setting up some extra resources for developers:
- a centralised web-site to easily find information about the API,
- a few pages describing the current road-maps for the short-term
release (3.3.13) and the long-term release (4)
I hope this forum to complement these activities especially the election
of new features for the upcoming releases.
I'm currently the only moderator. Abusive/spam/dodgy posts will be
deleted without warning.
I hope you will find this useful and don't be shy to bring your ideas
