Hi all, I was recently involved in a discussion about the mechanics of running an open-source project over at Library Web Chic, and I've come to the conclusion that for a project to succeed, it really needs to have at least a small, dedicated community. A community of one is no community at all ;-) For the last few years, I've been in charge of running Libstats, a small, GPL'd reference statistics tracking / knowledgebase project. For a variety of reasons*, I'm unlikely to have a significant amount of time to devote to the project ever again... and there are a lot of things that could use improvement, ranging from squashing bugs to improving documentation to adding features to answering support questions. So... here's my call for volunteers. This project is quite small (<6400 LoC), PHP / MySQL-based, and seems to work pretty well for the majority of its users -- it'd be a great place for someone new to open-source project management to learn the ropes. I'd especially like someone outside our university to have some ownership of the project. Interested? Head over to http://groups.google.com/group/libstats -- that's where the party's at. Cheers, -Nate Vack Wendt Library University of Wisconsin - Madison * Full disclosure: I'm also working on a hosted, closed-source competitor to this project... so for me to stay solely in charge of Libstats would be conflict-of-interest-central. That's not my only reason, but it's a big one.
