Please add your name to our new Apache OpenOffice "Directory of Volunteers"

Rob Weir
(Follow-up posts to ooo-dev only, please)

The new Directory is on the wiki here:
https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/OOOUSERS/Directory+of+Volunteers

Every volunteer is able to sign up for a wiki account and edit this page.

1. Volunteers of all kinds are encouraged to add your name.
Developers, Support, QA, UX, Marketing,  Translators, etc.   This is
not only for committers.  All Volunteers can add their information.

2. The list is currently in alphabetical order by given name.  Let's
try to keep it that way ;-)

3. Feel free to link your name to your blog, website or similar.

Thanks!

-Rob

+1 to the list.

Does anybody know of an app or something so new volunteers do not the edit
the whole list but simple add their names (I managed to ruin the list for
about 30 seconds until I got it right :-)

Should we write on top "use edit, not add", to make it obvious.

In moin moin these feature are done by using templates. I remember
mediawiki having something similar but you need to digg through the
documentation of Confluence to see if it support forms.

Then again most wiki users are more used to editing the page.

Agreed, but this list is huge and one error and the list is not a list
anymore (I forgot location, and simple entered skills/interest).

Do not forgot that some volunteers may not be as technical as others (e.g.
people involved in the linguistic side) for them an easy way might just be
the point where they go ahead and do it :-)

but I might be wrong and just old-fashioned, can very well be.

That said, sooner or later most users will need to deal with the wiki
in my experience. Most project use the wiki to make lists like this,
record votes, or just publish information, and is expected for regular
volunteer to use the wiki or the mailing list for assistance.

On your point on destroying the table due to bad formating, wikis are
usually foolproof thanks to rollbacks or just the next user fixing the
possible formating errors.

You got a point there...rollback is a very handy thing :-)

And eventually we all have to learn wiki (and also the different flavors).

At least I got my entry right.

I have already filled in my information in that list. My question is how do
I contact my fellow Chinese in that list?

The cwiki list is the current one.

I'd recommend a note to ooo-dev to start.  Even if the topic seems of
interest only to you, it is good to get it into the archives.  I've
solved many build issues by searching the archives for my error
message.
