We are thinking about significant changes to the OpenNTF.Org web site, both in terms of UI and functionality.
One goal is to provide version control systems on OpenNTF. Right now projects with multiple owners can use SVN repositories on OpenNTF. We'd like to extend this and also offer Git and Mercurial repositories for all projects.
Another goal is to update the project management UI. In this context Declan Lynch has promoted Redmine for a long time. Redmine is an open source project management application. OpenNTF project owners could benefit from it since, for example, each project can have it's own Wiki and it's own forums. Furthermore Git and Mercurial can be integrated in Redmine.
We'd also like to extend the reach and be present in other established communities. That's why we ask XPages developers to use StackOverflow and that's why we integrated questions from StackOverflow on XPages.info. Another established and growing community especially for open source is GitHub with over 4 million open source repositories. We'd like XPages developers to be able to use GitHub also as version control system for OpenNTF projects. Redmine supports integrating projects from GitHub (with some manual configuration).
Below is a deck describing some of these ideas in more details. Please note that none of this has been committed yet.
There are some technical questions that we need to figure out first. Especially the SSO between Domino and the Ruby on Rails/Apache based Redmine is a challenge. Declan and Bruce found some starting points (here and here) but we'd appreciate help from the community.
There is also plenty of other work. Please contact us if you are interested in implementing certain parts.
XPages Extension Library Stocking Filler
Fri, Dec 19th 2014 9:11a Padraic Edwards Hopefully the eleventh XPages Extension
Library release for Notes/Domino 9.0.1 will serve as a nice stocking filler
for you all as 2014 draws to close. It's been a great year for XPages
on OpenNTF with a total of nine releases delivering lots of new features
and fixes. This new release is notable for two things in particular. First,
it contains a bunch of fixes and improvements relating to the Bootstrap-based
responsive design offering that shipped in the previous release (901v00_10.201 [read] Keywords: domino
XPages Goes Responsive
Fri, Dec 5th 2014 10:11a Padraic Edwards As was recently announced, Bootstrap
is now part of the OpenNTF XPages Extension Library, added in release 10.
The ExtLib includes a new plugin that contains Bootstrap 3.2.0, providing
new renderers for the XPage core controls, the ExtLib controls, and two
new Bootstrap themes. An added benefit of supporting Bootstrap is
that the ExtLib now includes jQuery 2.1.1, giving XPages developers the
power to use jQuery in their apps as well.
As most XPages developers know, Responsive Web Des [read] Keywords: ibm

room for new blood.

OpenNTF's member companies) and three board positions open for Contributor
Directors. Member Directors are elected for two years and Contributor
Directors for one year.
So, if you work for an OpenNTF Member company or if you are an [read] Keywords: openntf
