During GUADEC I and Alexandre had a few long and entertaining
evenings nights. One of the topics we talked and coded about was the creation about a http://whatcanidoforgnome.org/ website which would have similar contents to our Get Involved page but be inspired by the famous http://whatcanidoformozilla.org/ page. In contrary to the traditional Get Involved page, this website guides users through questions towards suitable projects and is extensible without loss of simplicity.
Because I already did the same website for my coala project, this is a fun thing to do and I’m sick and bound to my bed I finally found the time to finish our little prototype. You can see it live on – take a guess – http://whatcanidoforgnome.org/. Without question, this project is open source and everyone is happily invited to contribute to the questions as well as the theme upstream – Trust me: it’s dead easy!
Please let me know what you think of this website! Currently the question set covers only the contents from the traditional Get Involved page but I think we might want to extend it to e.g. guide people by programming language to the actual projects. There are many possibilities to extend this further.
