My question is if status of ClamWin Developments are being published somewhere, and if not, could someone try to offer this service please Question Smile

The reason for this request is that I think it would serve us all if one didn't have to bug you guys with lots of questions like "are you working on such-and-such item" and "what's the status on such-and-such item" or "when will such-and-such item be included" and having to wait for some kind person like yourselves to answer, again and again... Exclamation Rolling Eyes

So, therefore, I am interrested in being able to monitoring, and not interfering with, the current status of ClamWin developments. Idea Embarassed

The type of information I'm interrested in are; Cool
    Is development being done on such-and-such item
    What is the status i.e. how much is done vs. how much is left, what is missing, any problems need solving etc.
    Is help appreciated and if so, what kind
    Is the item scheduled for any specific date or release or otherwise expected to be available in the foreseeable future

I'm sure that you have a good idea of some of the items I'm interrested in so I wont bore you with repeating them here Wink
Anyway, I've been searching http://forums.clamwin.com, www.clamwin.com, and www.sourceforge.net/projects/clamwin/ , and even googled some on this item but, to no avail, so some tips on this subject would be greatly appreciated.

PS. I've had this in the Virus Scanner forum but noone answered for several weeks so I'm moving it here...

Thanks,

Well i do agree that it would be nice to have info like this. I guess the problem is that we don't really have a time schedule for the development, as we work on it when we have the time.

Maybe we could post a sticky saying what is worked on and by whom ? Just a thought though.

Nice to see that someone actually read my post Wink

I think the idea with a sticky post is great.

Also I do understand that the work is not being done on a schedule, but still what I would like to see:


"Is development being done on such-and-such item"

- This should be a real easy one to post


"What is the status i.e. how much is done vs. how much is left, what is missing, any problems need solving etc."

- Even without a schedule, this kind of info should not be difficult to supply


"Is help appreciated and if so, what kind"

- Same goes for this one


"Is the item scheduled for any specific date or release or otherwise expected to be available in the foreseeable future"

- Okay so you can't specify a date ... still you should be able to state something like "not for the next two months or so"
or "if nothing unexpected happens, within a week" ... and I'm sure we all understand that shit happens and noone is gonna
hold you to it, it's just that it's nice to have some idea of how things are progressing, especially if one is really in need of
some specific update ...


Thanks,

Hello:

What you are talking about is formal project reporting. I'm sure the project manager is doing something along this line for his own information. If not, then he should be.

They need a way to formalize this--perhaps a Web page that all project participants could access and update for their status with projections, comments, problems, etc.

If the project manager doesn't have time to do this, perhaps he could provide regular status updates to someone who does--like you. They really need it, I believe. Some would say it might take the fun out of the project, but I think it might help make it a little more formal and more professional. As a result, more might get done faster. I think this would be a good project management change.

However, I think this will have to come from the project manager.

Regards,
