Several more projects have mentioned to me that they’re looking for developers to take over, or assist, in the development of their project.
Box2DFlashAS3 is a Flash ActionScript 3.0 port of Erin Catto’s 2D Physics library Box2D. The current developers have moved on to other things, and the port is falling behind the original. If you’re interested, let us know.
WANem – Wide Area Network Emulator
WANem is a wide area network emulator. It supports various features such a bandwidth limitation, latency, packet loss, network disconnection among other wide area network characteristics.
WANem won the FOSS India Awards in 2008, and the SourceForge Community Choice Awards that same year. But the various developers have moved on to other things, and they’re looking for new maintainers.
Get in touch with me, and I’ll make the necessary introductions.
Juice, cross-platform podcast receiver
Juice is a media aggregator that automatically downloads files to your computer or portable device, leaving you ‘one-click-away’ from latest media. Based on the iPodder idea of Adam Curry.
Although it’s been a long time without a release, Juice still has a large number of users.
There are a few people wanting to help, but restarting the project requires a massive time investment that is too big for an occasional helper.
It is not developers that this project is lacking. This project needs a project manager that will dive into the code-base and study the current state of the project (which hsa changed since the 2006 official release) and make a plan of how to continue the development, where should this software head to, what features needs to be added, what should/can be removed, etc.
Only after such a road map exists, it would be beneficial to gather and build a team of developers to wake up the project and put it back on a development track.
If you’re interested in any of these development efforts, please contact us, and we’ll put you in touch with the right people.
