There have been requests to implement project categories for easy browsing. (Source: direct E-Mail to firstname.lastname@example.org)
What do you mean? There are categories, these are custom tags with autocompletion (if somehome creates a new tag, that tag will also show up when people give their project a tag). Every project can have lots of them. and they are clickable.
Good point! They’re not yet used in the browse+explore tab, tho? (Browse by category &c)
Yeah. I’m going to have to learn some golang before I get started. I’m a front-end dev and UX consultant by trade. I’ll have to look into how these sorts of pages could be created before submitting any new work; especially if it’s without any requirements or an issue outlining what some of the asks are.
Agreed, but it is the sort of thing that makes a difference for those on the fence or new to contributing to open source. Discoverability can be left to those running the projects, but based on tags some inferences could be made about a project given its tags. Esp if we have a tag cloud that is split out to help people categorize the purpose/field/topic of their project.
Is your vision only to be the independent space where OSS can happen, independent of corporations? Or does that vision include driving public interest in participating in open source?
