Open Source Projects

Post by paulej » Tue Sep 01, 2009 3:38 am

I am curious: would people benefit from a sub-forum under the "Product Development and Deployment" section that covers the various open source projects? For example, have a forum that reads "Open Source Projects" and then when you click on that, it would lead you to a set of additional forums, one for each of the various projects folks suggest to add, which might be for things like OpenMCU, H323Plus, GnuGK, Kamailio (formerly OpenSER), etc.

Take the poll and/or feel free to post a comment.

I did not get an overwhelming response to the poll to create groups related to open source, but the majority did express a desire to have such a sub-group. Further, I continue to see a lot of questions asking questions on open source projects. So, I think there is a need. As such, I created the sub-category. We will see how it goes, but I hope that people will find it useful. Can you direct people directly to the sub-category with this URL: http://forums.packetizer.com/viewforum.php?f=45

By all means, feel free to suggest groups that are not listed. I did not list Asterisk, because there is already a vibrant discussion forum for that at http://forums.digium.com/. Should I include a note about that somewhere in that section?
