Desperation! The [projects] page is sinking of its own weight!

Why, oh why, can't we have a project index with one-line descriptions? And how about some nice Project Nanny to go around and wipe out the cobwebs?

I should be the one to talk. Heh. Still, the need is there. Advogato isn't Sourceforge, and should not be. Nonetheless, wouldn't it be nice to look through a list of projects that you know are being actively maintained by like-minded geeks? Wouldn't you like to know what project nncfbgh is, and whether it is relevant to something you are doing, have done, or plan to do? Wouldn't it be nice if the projects page required less than 3300 lines of HTML to display?

Or, how about some categories? I know -- this is a shocking and radical idea. I'm willing to put my money (well, time, anyway) where my mouth is and work on features that would make Advogato a more productive meeting of the minds. Anybody else want to come along for the ride?

...this is after the [projects] page was cleaned out quite a bit. Oy.

It's a featureless linear list ..., posted 12 Jan 2005 at 05:00 UTC by jbuck » (Master)

... and one line descriptors would only help a bit. There should be categories, and a way to see only projects belonging to a given category.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
