What kind of help can the community give?

Post#1 by hayzoos » 30 Jan 2011, 02:16

I have an urge to help. I'm an older techie with a family and such so my time availability is less than it was when I was younger. I can still contribute. I know there are plenty of ways I could help, but what does the project need? How about putting up some suggestions for others who would help if they knew how.

BTW, nice work people. This is working very nice for me.

hello hayzoos,
i'm glad to see your proposition :)

I used to put some requests here for 64bit box (some issues are 32bit related as well):
viewforum.php?f=63
so it's good place to start.

Other than that:
- 'Development' section is designed for all suggestions and ready to go solutions. If you have something to add - please share.
- especially we need a help in these two threads:
viewtopic.php?f=53&t=96
viewtopic.php?f=53&t=122
Windows client for G4D would be required (i know that Quax and Falcony has something). nice gfxmenu in second place.
All good ideas about package manager are also very welcome.

If you have some unique skills like gtk/qt3-4 coding please reveal them immediately :D
Enjoy staying on this site.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

SEO is on my TODO list .... however the list keeps getting longer instead of shorter!

The website runs Joomla 1.5 so if anyone that has good Joomla foo (and free time) i would be happy to pass this on.

@all users here

If there are users who need some help in Spanish, I can try to help *if there is a need* either 32 bit or 64 bit porteus. If there is a need to translate something I can help. If users need help with modems (regular) or winmodems, I can also try to help get these users what they need to achieve a connection. I have been visiting the site, but not posting :(, just seeing how great many community members are here and contributing :), we are really set for a great linux live distribution and I can see the community is here. This is impressive Many great howto's, many involved. I want to try to help out in whichever way I can. Let me know, email me if I am asleep and anyone needs some help in the above areas.
