This is a useful endeavour in and of itself but would also have the side effect of having people check out nixers.net if they want to see where the software came from, ask questions about it, contribute, etc.

It's a great idea considering that what most of what the users answered (so far) to what they want to see more on the forums was related to personal projects (what others are working on) and programming.

This could fill the gap and now that we've got a git platform running it's also possible.

The git repo currently exports all tagged releases to http://git.nixers.net/releases, so it's a good starting point to package softwares IMO.

Another way to promote the community would be to create our own CA, and signing certificates for people we REALLY trust, rather than people paying for that.
All nixers could then add this CA to their certificate file and browse a nixers approved web!

All in for some CA with some strong EC like Brainpool and company. It's still pretty new, so most browsers won't even support it, openssl only supports a small amount of curves so far. We could start incorporating those in one of those webkit based browser.

Hahaha, I can tell that you're really into this new project of yours about elliptic curves :P
As we are not well-known, providing an unsupported CA will not help with the adoption though, so I'm not 100% sure it's the good way to go. To discuss.

* Help the authors to clean up platform-specific code
* Try to build and use their software on many operating systems and architectures to find bugs, issues
* And finally, submit packages to Debian, Fedora, {Open,Free}BSD, pkgsrc, etc.

I think this sound like a really good idea. I'm biased since I could use some help with my project, but I'd definitely help others however I can.

Unless you're talking about something else, I already shared it in the Google form :P

We can't see the form results, unless we resubmit it

Patience, I'll write a summary of what has happened within the last years, and where we can aim, by the end of next week.

Be sure to submit your answer to the survey by that time if you haven't already.
