    Default nubuilder??

    I've helped persuade a company to release their fantastic online database development software under GLP3... the question is where do we go from here??

    Downloads

    pity if companies do this and no one notices.

    can someone let me know what the procedure is to get this included in the repositories??? who do I contact, etc.??

    i know it must be there, but i don't readily find the link on
    nubuilder.com to download the programs' source code..

    perhaps the next step would be to put the source on
    http://sourceforge.net/

    hmmmm...sorry, i guess i just didn't look hard enough on the
    nubuilder.com site..

    ok, back to your question (by the way, i agree it is a pity if it is
    released and no one notices): "what the procedure is to get this
    included in the repositories?"

    such requests used to be taken in via the Wishlists, see
    http://en.opensuse.org/Wishlist, including the wish for new packages
    http://en.opensuse.org/Package_Wishlist

    however, a quick tour of those pages will prove that today both
    openSUSE features and packages wishes (and lots else) is managed via
    openFATE, see here https://features.opensuse.org/

    and, since you already have an openSUSE/Novell account (or you
    couldn't post here) you may add the package wish to openFATE yourself..

    though, since openSUSE is an rpm based distribution i think if i were
    you though i'd make it easy to the openSUSE packagers by providing an
    openSUSE (and probably Red Hat) friendly rpm in addition to the
    currently offered "Ubuntu/Debian installer" and "Linux/Unix" tgz
    file...you will probably wanna work with the "Build Service" on that,
    see http://en.opensuse.org/Build_Service

    and, if i were you i'd offer up a multi-flavored rpm for download, via
    a link on the same page where the Ubundu etc release is offered..

    oh, now i began the download and see it is direct from sourcforge...cool!

    ohhhhh....i now i open and see that your "Linux/Unix" tgz file is very
    off-putting _to me_...it is very un-Linux like...very strange
    indeed...oh, now i get it: it isn't Linux-like because it was
    developed by Windows[tm] folks for Windows[tm] folks..

    hmmmm...oh WAIT, now i read: "Please take advantage of the free to use
    download of nuBuilder, which is a completely web-based database
    development tool similar to Microsoft Access." at
    http://nubuilder.com/nubuilderwww/in...p?nav=download

    NO WONDER it looks so strange, you have apparently built an M$-windows
    application clone and released it open...hmmmm...well, thank
    you....but, having never used Microsoft Access i doubt i'll ever need
    to replace it..

    well, because there are thousands who are familiar with access jumping
    off the M$ ship everyday, and many search frantically for something
    they are familiar with, you might also want to try introducing your
    product to these folks who make lists of open software alternatives to
    proprietary releases:

    http://linuxappfinder.com/
    http://jjmacey.net/blog/?p=179
    http://www.osalt.com/
    http://www.linuxrsp.ru/win-lin-soft/table-eng.html

    there may be others on the net who provide such...if you find some i'd
    love to add them to my list..

    and, thanks for your contribution to open source!
