Title: Newsletter / mailing
Post by: brononius on January 31, 2012, 07:44:39 am
Maybe an idea to bring a kind of newsletter in the scope?
This way, new plug-ins/versions/skins/nice-to-know/... -things can be better announced?

Personally i want to stay up to date about new evolutions.
It's a bit hard to go each time through the wiki's, the site, the forum to see if anything is changed.

Of course, different ways are possible:

Of course, different ways are possible:
  • mailing
  • blog/rss (think this can be the best way?)
  • updates over fb/twitter
  • ...


We do have the news on www.linuxmce.org, which I also post in the forum.
But to be honest, there isn't so much news that we need to twitter it. The development is slow, but steady. I see no advantage in twittering that I made another bongojoke and golgoj4 laughed and updated 3 bits of code.

I think the wiki is no place for news.

If you give to much updates, people are not interested or get the wrong expectations.

That's maybe why a blog (with rss) could be interesting?
Fe if somebody has created a new skin, this could be posted on that blog. Or fe a nice howto to add a ip-phone. Or ...

Not really official 'news', but i think that a lot of guys are interested in these kind of things?
And could be interesting to have more 'testers' / feedback?

Maybe add svn updates to a rss-feed?

brononi,

thanks for volunteering to do such a thing.

Setup a blog and maintain it. We will add a link to it from the wiki. If, after a couple of month, you find out, that you really enjoy writing about LinuxMCE in the blog, we can link a subdomain to the blog as well.
