Puppy projects: Bright Ideas

August 26, 2011 — BarryK
I already announced the "Puppy Projects" web page yesterday:

I received feedback with great ideas for some very ambitious projects, plus I thought of some myself, so I have added a "Bright Ideas" section to the web page, just scroll down:

So, in the future if anyone asks on the Forum how they can get involved on the developer side of things, point them to this page!

Psip is a great project that languished for awhile, now lobster has revived it: The main thing about Psip in comparison to other similar projects, is that it is very small. That was the main reason that it was great for inclusion in Puppy. I don't have it in recent Wary builds though, as it seemed to not be used by anyone. But perhaps it is a situation where it really needs to be in all Puppy builds, so that it is something that all Puppy users can use right-off, and that will promote it's adoption (and general awareness of its existence).
