AltME: Community


Adrian, thanks for getting this restarted.
I think we should put this up on the Wiki for a start. This will give us a convenient location to point to.
Actually, we had such a page before:
Should probably get that cleaned up.
Also, note an additional "chat" venue: IRC.
A few of us hang out in IRC in the channel #rebol on freenode (irc://, 128 messages in December. If you don't have an IRC client handy, freenode also provides a web-based client for quickly looking around:
I took the liberty of taking AdrianS's posting, reformatted it to Markdown (only minimal changes necessary), added IRC, reordered things slightly, and updated two few counts.
Here's a rendering of this updated Markdown document to HTML:
Here's the Markdown source of the updated document:
Ladislav, I agree about the level of activity not being as useful if the number of contributors is not specified, but for now this will have to do. The way to do this is through some reasonably smart scripting that can obtain a better breakdown of posts by user, either through scraping or some sort of API, if available.
GrahamC, Ladislav: are you ok with this group becoming web-public as is?
(For the record: I am ok with it.)
Thanks for the additions, Andreas. It was my intent to have this in Markdown or something like it to have it be easily posted to any web site that could accept such content.
"obtain a better breakdown of posts by user" - I do not criticize your findings, I do not even think it is needed to know how many contributors there are; that was rather an observation from me related to one "prolific" contributor
well, I actually think that this breakdown is useful myself because it's true that some people are just so much more 'prolific' than others
Thanks for reviving this Adrian.
I'm okay.  This summary though looks like it would be tedious to do.  Can it be scripted?

Group is now web public.

Andreas, your R3 binaries page looks really nice.  Might be worth putting up a link to the Android binary even though it's not built (yet) by your build farm just to have everything available in one place. I'm assuming Saphirion wouldn't mind if the right attribution is made.
Would it be worth putting what compiler switches were used for the builds? Do you think you'll want to provide debug builds at any point?
wrong group... ugh.
well, maybe not - you are providing pre-built binaries for the community!

Not sure where to post this.  Links on the R2 Desktop are broken, notably rebolforces.  Anybody have news of this?
