4 I would like to create a GLEP for the implementation of an official
5 section of for blogs. Projects such as mozilla have had
6 great success with this. (I like to Read
7 Asa's blog)
10 Fans of the mozilla project read these developer's blogs with great
11 interest and frequency. In addition, it helps to garner interest in the
12 project and the blog's comment feature (where users can respond to
13 developers and developers can respond to users) makes users have a more
14 interactive role in the project. Mozilla fanatics (such as myself and
15 other people I know) frequently find a wealth of interesting material
16 in these developer's blogs and they email interesting posts to their
17 friends, some of whom would never otherwise have heard of mozilla.
18 These blog subjects aren't always about mozilla, which makes them even
19 more interesting. I found Asa's blog interesting during the mars rover
20 project because he created transcripts of the NASA press conferences,
21 for example.
23 This would be a great mechanism for getting people more interested in
24 the Gentoo project. In addition, it would give developers a way to send
25 messages to the community and help users get more aquatinted with
26 developer's personality, which, in turn, would foster an even stronger
27 sense of community between users and developers.
29 Before I create the GLEP, i'd like to see what users and developers
30 think about this blog idea. Because I want to get both the developers'
31 and users' opinion, I'm sending this message to both gentoo-dev and
32 gentoo-user. I hope you guys feel as enthusiastic about this as I do.
