Ticket #8802 (closed: wontfix)

Opened 4 years ago

Last modified 3 years ago

'Related projects' suggest improbable related projects

Reported by: sebas_ledesma Owned by: hinojosa
Keywords: ENGR SPT-288 Cc: jogy@…
Private: no



When entering in the 'Sumary page' for OWLNext project ( https://sourceforge.net/projects/owlnext/ ) it show's at the right side a 'Related projects' section/panel.
There, it shows not very related projects to software development, ie:
- A PLC simulator: for industrial users
- SlideDeck: to animate web pages
- tLapse: a utility to launch applications

I suggest to use instead these (wich are 'Frameworks' for software development):
And obviously RECIPROCITY and being included as 'related projects' in those projects.

Thank's in advance.

Thank you for this ticket, I'm opening an inquiry with our engineering team to figure out how the related projects feature works. We'll update this ticket when we know more on this.

I am also interested in finding out how SF determines related projects. My project (https://sourceforge.net/projects/directshownet/) correctly finds one of the projects I think should be related, but misses another.

The engineering team is opting not to dedicate work to this right away, however thank you for pointing this out. We're continually looking to improve our related projects algorithm and you should see better results soon.
