Some background Maintenance on Kenai.com

We've just been informed that the registration service that we rely on is going through maintenance on its service hardware starting on Friday, August 7th at 8:00PM and ending on Saturday, August 8th at 10PM Pacific time.  During this time, you will not be able to create new accounts on the Kenai.com site, nor will you be able to update your existing profile data or password.

The rest of the site should continue to function normally.  All Kenai specific services, such as SCM, Issue Tracking, etc. will not be effected.

As usual, if you experience anything, other then what is stated above, during this period, please send an email to kenai-admin<at>sun.com.

Sorry for the inconvenience.  We are working with this dependency to try and remove these continued interruptions.

What is Your Project on Kenai.com?

So many amazing projects now live at Kenai.com! From JRuby, to TwitterFX, to Alice, and more.  The community is building out some amazing projects for developers' participation.

But what about your project? Are you getting the level of community interest and participation that you need? If not,  there's some steps YOU can take to stir interest. First and foremost, provide as many details as you can on your project page.  How do you do this? Simple, from your "MyPage" click on "Manage" for any project you're administering and fill in information.  Make sure you have a solid project description; briefly outline what you're trying to accomplish, what technologies are involved, if you want developers' participation, etc.  Also, fill out the tag field with as many terms that map to your project; this will make it easier for interested parties to find your project from the project tag cloud.

 Manage Your Project

To learn more about how to manage your project, watch this brief screencast.

Also, if you want more exposure for your project, let us know! Send us an e-mail requesting us to highlight your project on Kenai.com's featured project section.  Or perhaps we can reference it on our Kenai Blog, in our Kenai Facebook community, or a mention on our Kenai Twitter voice.  Simply send your request to: kenai-admin<at>Sun<dot>com.

Furthermore, if you have the time, we can interview you on our Kenai BlogTalk Radio show! Again, just drop us a note, and we'll coordinate directly with you.

 Lastly, socialize your project at Kenai.com through your social networks! Blog a lot, blog often! Twitter about it (use #projectkenai so it shows up in our feed, as well - more exposure for you!).

 Let us help you make your code grow at Kenai.com!
