Project Name: gobby
Target Audience: Fedora developers, especially package maintainers
Expiration Date (required): 2007-12-31
From the gobby package description: Gobby is a free collaborative editor. This means that it provides you with the possibility to edit files simultaneously with other users over a network. It supports multiple documents in one session and a multi-user chat.
This project would provide gobby services to Fedora users.
Packager use case: a packager puts up a rpm spec for collaborative review. Documentation use case: a doc editor puts up a draft for collaborative editing. Coding use case: a developer puts up a source file for collaborative hacking.
Project plan (Detailed):
To provide an easier group edit solution than pastebins or CVS. To facilitate package reviews and mentoring.
Specific resources needed
A running sobby instance. On the default port of 6522 would be great.
An easy name for this server like gobby.fedoraproject.org
I setup a sobby instance on publictest2.fedora.redhat.com for testing.
