Hi Kai,

For sure, I will suggest that as well (knowing that there are gatekeepers at play when it comes to having new categories in).

Hi Pierre,

 

Thanks for your clarifying. I’m not able to open the web site and may misunderstand the purpose. Your approach looks fine to me.

One thing to note, could we add one item in the list like below? I thought ‘Kerberos’ the key term for Kerby. Thanks.

 

Kerberos -- Apache Kerby.

 

Regards,

Kai

Hi Kai,

 

The doap file for each (sub) project will enable that, ensuring that it will be properly visible at https://projects.apache.org/

 

Categorisations, and language definitions will create a visibility regarding grouping by:

  • language(s) applied/used
  • area of applicability

but these can also help (adopters/users/contributors) regarding joint development and cross-pollination activities, such as events, tweeting and more.

 

Or am I misunderstanding your positing?

 

Best regards,

Thanks Pierre for sorting this out!

 

Just a quick thought, another way could be like, listing per project, giving each project a dedicated and most distinguished position or summary. This might be able to avoid some confusion due to overlaps among these sub projects.

 

Regards,

Kai

Currently the categories to be used for listing our projects is limited.  See: http://projects-old.apache.org/categories.html

 

We should work on having some that suits us better, like:

  • LDAP - for Apache Directory, Apache Directory Studio, LDAP API, Apache Forrtress,
  • Directory Management - for Apache Directory, Apache Directory Studio
  • Authentication - for Apache Directory, Apache Directory Studio, LDAP API, Apache Forrtress, Apache Kerby
  • Authorisation - for Apache Directory, Apache Directory Studio, LDAP API, Apache Forrtress, Apache Kerby
  • Identity Management - for Apache Directory, Apache Directory Studio, LDAP API, Apache Forrtress,, Apache Kerby

What is your viewpoint on this? Did I miss any alternatives?

 

Best regards,
