    Community effort sharing

    “A system to share your efforts with others”

    It would be nice to have a place where people can let each other know about their efforts and progress concerning Ubuntu (read on I'm not suggesting a newsgroup).

    In this place you can let others know about an project your working on, an article you wrote, a deal with a company, a new driver, information you found and is worth knowing about, etc.

    Adding the possibility to give kudos and discuss efforts, would greatly benefit to the motivation of our community to contribute to Ubuntu. Also it can be motivating for others to read about their efforts.

    Sounds sort of like planet but with a broader spectrum? Maybe you could start an RSS aggregation site for people to hook their blogs up to for this purpose?

    I didn't know about ubuntu planet, had a look there and look very good. Some of my idea is implemented there, but not all. I still think it's an good idea.

    the rss part is a nice one. I'll keep that in mind.

    Er...well Launchpad tracks all your bug reporting, triaging, fixing, etc. But Planet is a blog aggregator so if you have a blog where you track that stuff, it automatically shows up on Planet if you're an Ubuntu Member and have registered your blog with it.
