    1 The Sourceforge pages hold the public trackers (bugs, patches, feature requests), Plugins and Skins. The user forums are also there and the downloads. It also provides access to the public SVN repository.

    3 Comments about each part:[[BR]]
     3!SourceForge.net (SF) is the world's largest Open Source software development web site. It is well recognized and is a reference when searching OSS. The pages for the FCKeditor project can be found at:[[BR]]
     4http://sourceforge.net/projects/fckeditor/
    45
    5 The trackers have lots of reports, many of them should be closed as they are related to fixed problems or are duplicate of another ones. [wiki:Cleaning_Sourceforge_Trackers Cleaning Sourceforge Trackers]
     6Many project management and development tools are offered by SF. The following are the main pages used by FCKeditor:
    67
    7 The Plugins and Skins should have higher visibility so new users (and not so new) can see how to extend the browser and avoid frustration.
     8 * Main Report Trackers: Bug Reports, Feature Requests and Patches
     9 * Contribution Trackers: Plugins and Skins.
     10 * Public Forums
     11 * Downloads
     12 * Public SVN Repository
    813
    9 I think that there is already some thoughts about moving the user forums out of Sourceforge.
     14=== Main Report Trackers ===
    1015
    11 The Downloads are fine.
     16These are the most important resources we have from our community.
     17
     18We are aware that there are more complete and advanced (and maybe confusing) bug tracking solutions out there ([http://www.bugzilla.org/ Bugzilla], for example), but the activity on those trackers are essential for our "ranking" (see bellow). In general, the SF tools are ok in this area.

     20'''Note:''' (dec/2006) The trackers have lots of reports, many of them should be closed as they are related to fixed problems or are duplicate of another ones: [wiki:Cleaning_Sourceforge_Trackers Cleaning SF Trackers].
     21
     22=== Contribution Trackers ===
     23
     24The Plugins and Skins trackers should have higher visibility so new users (and not so new) can see how to extend the editor and avoid frustration.
     25
     26=== Public Forums ===
     27
     28Today our Forums are available at SF. There system is quite limited and our community is not happy with it.
     29
     30Even if the forums seam to be considered in the "ranking" (see bellow), we have decided to move them out of there. The following tasks must be done to complete this move:
     31
     32 * Export the current forums threads. (Done: a program has been created. It "spiders" the SF forums and generates a XML file from it).
     33 * Decide which Forum software to use. You should go OSS over PHP. The most obvious choice is phpBB, but comments are appreciated about it.
     34 * Import the old forums in the new one.
     35 * Publish the new forums at our server.
     36 * Create ways for SF users to recover their accounts at the new forum system. So, yours who have contributed in the past can continue posting with their SF name, and have older posts linked to their account.

     38=== Downloads ===
     39
     40SF servers handle all file releases gigabytes of downloads, giving us nice statistics about it:[[BR]]
     41http://sourceforge.net/project/stats/detail.php?group_id=75348&ugn=fckeditor&type=prdownload&mode=alltime&package_id=0
     42
     43=== SVN ===
     44
     45Public SVN access to the under-development version of FCKeditor packages are available at:[[BR]]
     46https://svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/fckeditor ([http://svn.sourceforge.net/fckeditor browsable])
     47
     48== Ranking ==
     49
     50At SF, you may found many "ranking" based listing. The most important is the "[http://sourceforge.net/top/mostactive.php?type=week Most Active Projects]" listing. The project activity is also shown in the project main page (we are usually at 99.99%). Check out our statistics:[[BR]]
     51http://sourceforge.net/project/stats/?group_id=75348&ugn=fckeditor
     52
     53This ranking is very important to promote the project and we should work to always maintain it as high as possible.
     54
     55The ranking algorithm can be found here:
