Hi! Many thanks for the many reactions on my mail. If everything goes well, I can start at the preferences team(thx Sikosis). What I see is that there are some "small problems" with OpenBeOs Management. I am new to this community, but I can say that I am following it since Be Inc "stopped". I love BeOs, but on new systems, it does not work good anymore. I am very glad to see that there is a group of volunteers that want to make Beos "competitive" again. But this is "shit" we hear every time. What I see and hear now is that some things don't go very well and these are: 1) Communication problem with the management. We hear everything in "beos news-sites" but nothing on the "OpenBeos-site" Solution: A good and UP-TO-DATE news forum with easy acces. What I mean is not a newsletter( the ones that exists are very good for those who are developing). I mean, if someone leave a team or gets into it, this should be posted in a central place. And not somewhere in a 'dark corner' of the site. A potential developer should have the possibility to send a mail to the "right" responsable team-manager. There should not be old email addresses. 2) There is no easy way to contribute to the project. Solution: A webpage where you are able to fill in your interests and in which team you want to work. When you "submit", a mail should be sent to the responsable team-leader I just want to help, because I think this is important. I'm just 23 years old, but one thing I know for sure. If there is a lack of communication, you will have troubles sooner or later... and that is not what we need. With better communication you will see that a project will develop faster and better. greetz Jan-Rixt ------------------------ openbeos@xxxxxxxxxxxxx wrote: ------------------------ ----- Original Message ----- >From: "Kevin Czapla" >To: >Sent: Wednesday, September 17, 2003 7:48 AM >Subject: [openbeos] Re: Contribution to preferences or > > >> Everybody, please stay calm.
