Project Kenai: a new approach on OpenSource projects

Hi there! 

I, as many other developers, always felt the "need" to help OpenSource projects, but always thought hard to fit in the development cycle, entering the project, sources checkout, update, documentation, ah! So many things to do, to contribute just a little. Kenai offers all the platform for you to host your project.

"And how does that change y(o)ur world?"

Kenai is much similar to a popular portal called sourceforge, but has many more features. It offers you 3 different repositories engines for you to work with what you feel comfortable, mailing list for your project (no more googlegroups or setting up mailman in a dedicated server!), 2 different issue tracking platforms (including bugZilla), wiki, forums and guess what, a NetBeans plugin. All for free and waiting for you to just start coding!

So, structure is not a problem anymore. Since NetBeans can handle the repository updates, no more external apps rampage! There's plenty space for you to imagine and power to make it real. Also, being Kenai a popular portal, people can hear about your project and join it right away! You'll easily get new contributors!

 Also, plenty projects already made Kenai their home. By joining Kenai, you'll be neighboors with JRuby, Alice, JavaFX Compiler and many others. Quite something, eh?

"Wow, how can I start!?"

Anyone can join by going to http://kenai.com.  And you simply need to send an invitation request with a description of your project to: kenai-admin@sun.com.

Here's some useful resources to learn more or stay connected:

Be informed and let the coding begin!
