CentOS project TODO list
Make sure you also read the Contribute page if you are interested in helping out in any way.
Help improve this page
This TODO list is very outdated. Help us improve it by removing items that are either complete, or no longer relevant, and by adding your ideas for how we can collectively improve the CentOS Community.
For the Wiki:
- Add a new page for i586 support
- Add a section for Hardware Feedback Report's, where people can report on success / failure with specific hardware and any specific info required, we seem to really need something like this for the new sata raid cards and some other usb / firewire devices that need more than just kernel modules.
The stub for the Hardware List is there, the problem is: How do people request hardware problem reports for that page? At them moment I'll have them send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, but that is not a long term solution - even if they use the submit form I built for the page.
- Wiki Template for submission is there. Now to figure out on how to give people access to only that part of the page ...
- Add page for Hosting control panels - we seem to get a lot of people asking about them
- Do we need a list of panels first or should we directly say "Ask them first"?
- how about this list ?
- We get the most questions about this one.
cpanel actively makes changes to CentOS, so we should tell people to ask them first, if yum installs behave strangely.
- At least put some advice there (like "Get webmin from dag, the RPM from webmin.tld is broken").
- Direct Admin
- I suppose the next question might be - should we try get someone from 'upstream' maintain their own pages w.r.t these Panels?
Would be a great idea for cpanel. But cpMatt hasn't been seen for a long time now
- Add pages for nvidia / ati support ? maybe a howto for each ?
Should be put into the HardwareList. If sh ./install.bin is enough, I'll give it a shot later on.
- ATI is there. I cannot do nvidia at the moment, as I cannot stop X on my nvidia machine (which is at work).
- Add page about running yum on various RHEL distro's and if possible a migration path. It seems to be question asked often.
For the Website:
- Create layout for the docs sections
For the Project:
- Sparc Maintainers: Pasi is no longer able to maintain the CentOS-4/sparc tree ( he already does loads for the distro ), so we need someone to take over the role of Sparc-Maint.
- DeltaRPM support: We need someone who would like to grab the issue, do the testing, workout whats involved and then try and come up with an implementation plan ? Would be good if you already knew how yum and repomd type repositories worked. yum-presto is an option that seems the most likely candidate, so if you are involved with the yum-presto development that would be great!
- Graphic Designer : we need someone to help with the Distro Graphics
- Website designer : someone with a bit of experience and artistic ability to help in two stages
- Design a skin / help implement a new skin for the present website
- Look at content consolidation on the website and/or transition to a different system(!)?
- It may be worth considering to make it "protected wiki"-driven?
