Pidgin brainstorm back to life

Thanks to Nicolas Deschildre, the Pidgin brainstorm is now back to life. He provided the infraestructure and ideatorrent setup. There’s some work needed to have a fancier theme, but for now it should work.

The next step is to spread the word so as many Pidgin users as possible hear about this, since it’s not officially supported by Pidgin developers (won’t be on the Pidgin site), although they are OK with it in “unofficial” form.

I strongly believe an active brainstorm would be very useful for the Pidgin community. We can for example link trac tickets to brainstorm ideas, in order to make them more visible so they are not forgotten to oblivion. Or we could suggest a pack of ideas for a Google SoC student. This could open the doors to many things.

So let’s organize and spread the word! Digg it, slashdot it, or whatever😉

  1. Well done Felipe, managing to rope Nicolas into helping out. As we talked about in the #pidgin irc channel and to a lesser (and angrier) extent on the pidgin-devl mailing list, it’s going to be great to have a place for people to openly discuss ideas for Pidgin in a positive way. I’ve been looking for a place where people can suggest ideas that I can pick up on and develop and now we have one!

    I really really really (really) hope that we can convince enough people to use it and look at it. Perhaps to help kick it off, you could copy over all the ideas from the previous Brainstorm?

    Again, well done, as always🙂
