Hi all, I'm a Python web dev who wasted far too many hours playing MoO 1 & 2 back in the day. I'd love to start contributing to FO but have a pretty steep learning curve (glad to see Python being used in a few places though).
One thing I'd love to help with is migrating away from SourceForge! Maybe I'm alone, but I find SF.net obnoxious to use, especially the bug tracker.
I can think of a few options that would be better, and I'd be willing to help migrate to any of them:Google CodePros
Google Code is like sf.net done right. Its much faster to navigate. The tracker is a ton easier to use. The integrated wiki is decent, and administration is a breeze.
It uses subversion as well, so migration would be a breeze.Cons
Migrating everything would be a pain (but thats where I can help!).
Google Code doesn't let you customize much. That doesn't matter too much right now, but down the road I'm sure you'd like a site custom tailored for FO.Launchpad (bazaar), GitHub (git), or BitBucket (mercurial)Pros
I personally use bzr & hg (mercurial) these days over svn, and I think they're pretty ideal for open source projects (makes contributing patches and branching for features so much easier).Cons
While Launchpad has a great tracker, it has no wiki.
GitHub & BitBucket both have a wiki, but no tracker.
So none of these are a full fledged solution, but IMHO are all better than the similar services offered by sf.net.Trac
I love Trac and use it for work everyday. It has the wiki, source browser, ticketing, and great roadmapping/milestone features. It supports all the major open source version control systems, so you could stay with subversion now and migrate to something else later.
The only downside is you have to host it yourself or beg free hosting from someone like WebFaction or myself.
I think I have enough room on a server to sneak you on for free, but I might want to ask for donations or something down the road depending on how many resources FO takes up.My Humble Opinion
And I'll help with the setup & migration. Its just really easy to use and beautifully integrated. The base theme is fine, but you can always customize it down the road.
At any rate, perhaps you guys love sf.net or at least have better things to do than re-invent the wheel. I won't be offended if you ignore me.
Thanks for all your hard work on FO!
