Long time nixers
We could try to get nixers' software projects into official distro and OS package repositories. 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.

I'm thinking about the window managers, cool utilities, ricing-related programs etc that members of the community have written. The best method of advocacy, IMO, is proving that your community (or at least members of the community) write good software.

It will be interesting to see the "personal projects" answers to the survey. Maybe we could just start going through those and, for those that want to participate, we could:

* 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 can start doing this, but the only OS I have contributed to is OpenBSD, so I'll need help from the community to contribute to other operating systems. Also I don't even know how to contribute packages to most Linux distros.

Thoughts?
