[EP-tech] Re: Community Contribution Day



Thanks for that.

There has been talk about starting an Australian Eprints user group.  There are around 7 Universities here in Australia that use eprints currently, but I?m unsure about New Zealand.

Cheers,

Hi Monica

Access is controlled via our LDAP server, which you can register for here:

https://trac.eprints.org/ldap/

It would be great if we could span the world with the community contribution day -- how active is the community in the antipodes?

Hi Adam,

I know that I have tried to go and update the wiki at one point, but I
couldn?t make an account to do so. I assumed only staff were allowed to
update things and left it.
How does one go about getting access to edit the wiki?
I?m very happy to share everything I do/learn on our own repository.

As mentioned in my previous email, I'd like to organise a day on which
the community can contribute to EPrints.  Typically, these days are run
with the coders doing EPrints development, but I think that every member
of the EPrints community has something to offer.

* Perhaps you have some internal documentation that you could get up on
the wiki
* Do you understand an aspect of EPrints well enough to improve the
documentation?
* Are you a developer?  How about verifying pull requests or fixing
issues?
* Could you make a video walking us through how you do something in
EPrints?
* Are you really good at organising?  Can you make a list of jobs that
could be done on the day and act as a dispatcher?
* Can you help people get started -- there might be a lot of
willingness, but contributors may need to be introduced to our systems
(e.g. wiki accounts and best practices).
* Could you take a look at existing wiki pages and classify pages as
Good / Needs Improvement / Needs Removal?

These are just some ideas of what could get done on the day (and in the
run-up).  On the day, we will coordinate online in some way (suggestions,
anyone), and hopefully achieve the following:

* Improve EPrints
* Improve the Documentation
* Strengthen the Community
* Create a Model for Future Contribution Days

Please have a look at your calendars for the last three weeks of
November and mark your availability on this doodle:
