Create A User Community to Improve Our Open Source Software

Why?
  • Create impact. Open source software's value relies on its usage.
  • Get feedback, which could be good ideas for the future work.
How?
  • Create a well organized website, easy downloads, a bugzilla system, etc. Twiki and Sourceforge are very helpful in this sense.
  • Well answer questions by email.
  • Create a user list, which includes the project name, url, contacts, etc.
BTW, check out OpenCola, which applies the open source idea in making cola.
