Documentation/Macros Contest 2007
From Apache OpenOffice Wiki
How many contests
- make an international macros contest, let the DE project do his own extensions contest
- make an international macros contest, then make an international extensions contest
- make an international macros & extensions contest
- All entries are informed of the Project's copyright policy--PDL, CC for non-editable things, JCA for things include
- Don't explicitly support third-party proprietary licenses, unless we are being asked for that by applicants in the installation sets.
Rules of Participation
- We should decide whether we want to let everyone join, or - as the DE project planned - pick up the most interesting applications so we have a fix number of participants, each for one theme, so no theme is done by two applicants.
- Do we want to give some themes as examples, or do we just want to wait for applicants to send in their ideas?
- One open point is, which languages do we support.
- Only English.
- Foreign languages are also supported.
- Foreign languages are also supported, but a translation into English is obligatory.
- Announcement: Let's say mid-September for that.
- Closure: Mid-December, applicants have to send in their final work
- Awards: At the end of this or the beginning of the next year, we can award prizes.
Review Process and Criteria
- Technical implementation/Coding efficiency
- User experience/Ease of Use
- Maybe translation (see below)
- Our primary sponsor as of right now is Russell Ossendryver, of Worldlabel.com.
- Do we want
- several sponsors for the international contest?
- Or do you speak of contests to follow?
- Another idea would be to have one international sponsor and "small" sponsors in the NLC projects.
