In a discussion on the Richfaces irc channel with Nick Belaevski, I asked whether there was a centralized news page for everything related to Richfaces and, if not, if it was somehow possible to create one.
I am, as lots of other folks I suppose, very interested in the news about Richfaces and, currently, these are quite scattered in lots of different blogs (on relation.to / this forum / the wiki and so on). Having them all gathered (maybe just even links for a start) in one central place would benefit everybody. We could keep in touch with the updates a lot easier, improving our overal knowledge about it.
Here below the initial discussion on irc:
[23:48] <> Sorry to disturb you guys but I amvery interested in the developement and updates about richfaces and I am searching"the" place to look for news about it and itsdevelopment. Is there something like this available?
[23:49] <> I am constantly checking the forum(and posing there from time to time) and reading some wiki articles but I can'tfind a "timed" page anywhere
[23:49] <> Jerarckill: this channel and themain richfaces site is aboutit
[23:49] <http://www.jboss.org/richfacesand twitter > Jerarckill: we have project page
[23:49] <> Jerarckill: timed = schedule ofreleases you mean?
[23:50] <> Not entirely, just wanting to knowwhat you are working on, some explanations about the things on your mind andthe sort.
[23:51] <> I know some of you have a blog on... [For some reason, I don't remember the name right now]... which is vreyhelpful. But the information is split among the participatingmembers
[23:51] <> I would have liked to find one rootlocation with all the news, one below the other
[23:51] <> well, that's right - split
[23:51] <> relation.to?
[23:51] <> we have another blog at jroller
[23:51] <> (not telling you should, just that,as an interested user, it would help me)
[23:52] <> Jerarckill: sure, that will behelpful definitely
[23:52] <> To give another example, [some other technology] has more or less this: the root page of the website is only about release news(more or less) and you have the one single blog [...] about [...] updates
[23:53] <> Jerarckill: I am not sure we haveone... can you please post your thoughts on forum?
[23:53] <> Sure, i'll gladly do so
[23:53] <> Jerarckill: thanks - from my sideI'll ask Jay to handle that
[23:54] <> If all of you would gather your updates on richfaces on the same news website, I think it would definitely bevery exiting for us all
[23:54] <> (this website can be the one you already have of course)
[23:54] <> Just that I would see it proeminent.
[23:55] <> Jerarckill: yes, I see the point
[23:55] <> (I'll add the post to the forum then). See you!
[23:56] <> Jerarckill: thanks!
[23:56] <> Jerarckill: it won't be coolwithout great community help
[23:57] <> (relation.to was thelocation. Thanks Diable-D3)
