FreeDevelopers Students Group
27 January, 2001
FD-Students is the group setup within FreeDevelopers for the purpose
of encouraging students to research and contribute to free software.
Students will be encouraged to bring their existing projects to this
list and FreeDevelopers, and there will be a framework setup where
students can get assistance with their free software project. These
projects can be organised with developers in small working groups to
help out students in need of assistance. An area will be setup such as
a noticeboard/discussion forum
on this website, where students can
post essays and other forms of their work.
- No personal attacks on other list members; respect that people have
differing points of view, you can disagree with their ideas, but do
not attack them personally.
- All projects submitted to the Students list, must fall under the
general FreeDevelopers guidelines; i.e., they must be GPL-licensed.
- Topics of discussion: As the main purpose of this list is the
encouragement of development of free software by students, we will
not tolerate off-topic threads that do not fall into these categories:
- research into new ideas;
- assistance with free software projects of other students;
- requests for assistance, and announcements of projects (this
should be kept to a minimum, and approved by the list maintainer);
- discussion of existing free software projects by FreeDevelopers
(preferably kept on the appropriate project list, but discussion
of ideas to involve more people is ok).
- All rules listed here will be superseded by appropriate parts of
the constitution, once the constitution is finalised -- these rules will
not be unconstitutional.
This is a list of projects that we on FD-Students are currently
planning or working on:
- The first project that is in the planning stage is a GNOME application,
built using bonobo components which can be distributed over a network.
This is mainly a project where we learn about distributed
applications, and document what we learn; there is a lack of
decent documentation on this subject, from what I've seen.
