gathering information and experience to make openFate and its

team of people engaged in openFate to help maintain movement in
openFate and to enhance openFate where necessary.
While I'm neither good at English nor have enough programming
skills, I'm very interested in this openFATE structure.
No enoug programming
skills might be even an advantage and your
english sounds pretty good.
has ideas or wishes to improve openSUSE, they *might* come true - I
think that's the best part of open source project. I'd like to
participate the team, if I can be a helpful member.
Then add yourself to the page,
What comes in to my mind are things like:
- add documentation (how to use openfate, explain the process
etc.) - feature screening (does a feature lack important
information, find duplicates etc.)
- define the process on how to handle features
- call for feature voting in a certain period to make clear which
features are of high importance for the community
- find areas where openFate should be improved
- find people implementing features
Incidentally, I have a question. There are other ways to submit
some features now. We already have Feature Wishlist/Package
Wishlist on the Wiki, can submit a feature as a "bug -
Enhancement" to Bugzilla.
What are the difference between submitting features to openFATE and
submitting them to other channels noted above ? What I am most
concerned with is, the difference between openFATE and Bugzilla.
If there are some differences, I think they should be clear.
Good points and
Let me start with openFate and Bugzilla. In general Bugzilla looks
into the past - existing code which doesn't work or not as supposed.
openFate looks into the future - we need a functionality which
addresses a certain need. And yes there is an overlap wrt to
enhancement bugs. (might be a taks for the openFate team to go
through them and put some of them into openFate).
The Feature wishlist in the wiki IMO should be replaced by openFate. A
wiki tends to be unorderly, is not very good searchable and of course
having 1 place for feature requests is easier to handle then 2.
Or when it comes to "first" feature ideas/drafts ideas.opensuse.org
might the rigth place (currently outdated and not well maintained).
Exactly those are the things our openFate team should figure out and
address to make openFate clear and simple to use.
