Subject Blatant self promotion of blog
Date Thu, 16 Mar 2006 07:49:06 GMT
Wanted to mention something I've been doing this week on my blog:

Each morning at work I sit down and go over the new and modified
issues in a collection of open source projects - mostly looking for
security issues, but also just generally following what's going on,
especially in legacy releases which tend to be the ones we're

So I thought that it might be interesting to do the same kind of thing
each evening for all of Commons. It's not a full summary of what's
going on (I'd need to be summarising the mailing list too for that),
but it does seem like a useful thing (to me).

Value it adds

* Way for -users of Commons components to follow -dev without having
to keep up with the email.
* Definitely helps me as a -dev get a good feel for what's going on. I
tend not to read the bugzilla emails as they come in.
* Minor things like making sure the [foo] is at the front can be dealt
with for new issues.

Very interested in knowing whether people think it's of worth.
Especially in the long term - say we had a project blog at
that committers could post things like this to. Also interested in
whether it looks to be more useful for users or developers.

Sorry for the blog advertising; hopefully it was enough on-topic :)
