Hi,
since there are many projects on Codeberg it would be useful to publish a regular (e.g. monthly?) “community spotlight” with a short text interview to developers of popular or interesting or .. regular software, to give some visibility and encourage a stronger participation.

I know that making this proposal without volunteering to actually do the interview and writeup is rather silly, but before that I wanted to see what others think and if there’s enough interest.

I see this proposal has some support, fantastic!

Perhaps for the time being the best thing is to keep track of the proposed blog posts here.

There seem to be two ways to “measure” popularity of repositories: stars (“favorites”) and forks. For both criteria the most popular repository is Gadgetbridge. So it would seem appropriate to start with the most popular repository for the first blog post.

Another indicator is having a look at the activity tab and counting recent commits, PRs, Issues, amount of code lines changed etc ...

We could either set up some collaborative docs (Etherpad or CodiMD) to start writing the blog posts ... or start a rotating model - like discuss the editorial things here and someone assigns him or herself for the next spotlight, next months someone else etc ...

I’d love to help on that.

@fnetX that’s great!

My suggestion is to create one issue for each blog post, possibly at https://codeberg.org/Codeberg/blog/issues so we can keep track and submit pull requests with the content before it’s published. Each issue could link to an Etherpad, be assigned to someone etc.

@hw does that look OK?
