Sample text

If a project has no dedicated mailing list, then all support requests will be sent privately to the maintainer. If there is no public bug tracker, bug reports will be fewer and less helpful. Without a world-editable wiki for user documentation, the developer is left with extending and refining the documentation continuously. If the development trunk of the source code is not accessible, then users will not be able to check the latest version before complaining about bugs. If the code repository is inherently closed, then it is impossible to admit external contributors.

This is always a magical moment for a project, and a sure sign that it is on a good path. Ideally, the core maintainers should still provide support for tricky questions, but at some point certain users will take the lead in discussions, and it is important to thank them (personally) and to involve them further in the project. Conversely, unhealthy developments must be stopped where possible, and in particular aggressive behavior can be a real danger to community development. Likewise, not all well-meant enthusiasm is productive, and it is often necessary to say no, friendly but clearly, to prevent feature creep.

Third year and fourth year students get to collaborate on a common goal, which usually leads to teams of seven to ten students. The first year of our experiment we hooked up with that program, proposing new topics for the projects, focusing on software developed within the KDE community. Henri Massi´e, director of the course of study, has been very welcoming to the idea, and let us put the experiment in place. For that first year, we were allocated two slots for KDE related software projects. To quickly build trust, we decided that year to provide a few guarantees regarding the work of the students: ❼ to help the teachers have confidence in the topics covered: the chosen projects were close to the topics taught at the IUP ISI (that is why we targeted a UML modeling tool and a project management tool for that year); ❼ to give maximum visibility to the teachers: we provided them a server on which the student production was regularly built and remotely accessible for testing purpose; K´evin Ottens 35 ❼ to ease the engagement of the students with the community: the maintainers of the projects were appointed to play a “customer” role thus pushing requirements to the students and helping them find their way in the ramifications of the community; ❼ finally, to get the students going, we introduced a short course on how to develop with Qt and the frameworks produced by KDE; At the time of this writing, we have been through five years of such projects.
