Increasing exposure

In Timeline on August 30, 2009 at 1:44 PM

A few days ago I decided to try SourceForge’s Help Wanted feature. It allows projects to “advertise open positions to potential volunteers.” I wrote that we needed help translating our application and returned to what I was doing not expecting the advertisement to have any big effect. I was therefore surprised to be contacted by three people the next day, all showing interest in translating. Thanks SourceForge for this feature.

This was the first time I actively tried to involve others in the project. After the 0.4.0 release I will also register the project on freshmeat to increase the chance that people find out about it. I believe we are now ready for more exposure.
