The GNOME Foundation Board of Directors is planning a new initiative: the idea is for the GNOME project to start managing a list of cool software that uses or extends the GNOME platform, which we will then promote and support.
The list can include nice apps which use our platform and (loosely) follow our HIG. It can also include libraries that extend the platform, such as additional language bindings. The software that’s on the list won’t have to be hosted by GNOME, but would receive publicity and support from the Foundation, and contributors would qualify for Foundation membership.
In this way, we want to promote, celebrate and support all the great software that people make for GNOME.
We’ll be sharing more detailed plans for the initiative, but for now we want your help giving it a name!
The name needs to be applicable to the software we’re promoting, so you can say this is a GNOME supercalifragilisticexpialidocious application. It also needs to be a cool name, so we can do marketing around the initiative and the software itself.
It would be great if people wanted to share their suggestions or thoughts. At this point there’s no wrong answers so don’t feel shy about posting your ideas!
