Summary:pgFoundry Open For Business
Project:Support

PostgreSQL's new collaboration site for associated projects, pgFoundry, also known as projects.postgresql.org, is up and running at http://www.pgfoundry.org/. This is the beginning of our transition from our own GBorg to a framework which is maintained and improved by a broad external community -- GForge. And of course it runs on PostgreSQL.

GForge offers us the following features over GBorg:
-- A glossy new look
-- Multiple search interfaces
-- Multiple catagorizations for each project
-- User-driven project and programmer ratings
-- Project "job openings"
-- ability to support project "home pages" (limited to static HTML right now)
-- surveys

Right now, we are taking new projects only. Next week, we hope to start porting old projects from GBorg, on a strictly voluntary basis. New projects already on pgFoundry include plperlNG, framewerk, pathetic.org, and my2postgres. Your new project is welcome!

If you logged in with GBorg before April 18, 2004, your login has been copied over from Gborg, and you can just use it. If you are a recent GBorg user, you will need to create a new login.

Over the next few months, we will be enabling the following features (all of which currently have some bugs)
-- Code Snippets: A library to share small scripts and functions, like Roberto's old "PL/pgSQL Library", but supporting multiple languages;
-- lightweight personal blogs for developers
-- PostgreSQL databases for each project

So, if you've been holding on to a new project idea, please create it now! Your new project will be accessable as <projname>.projects.postgresql.org as well as through pgFoundry navigation.

pgFoundry is online due to the efforts of Andrew Dunstan, Gavin Roy, Josh Berkus, Marc Fournier and Chris Ryan, with help from GForge's Tim Perdue. This project has not yet categorized itself in the Trove Software Map
