Same view: Actually to add my own view I like forums better and tend to ignore mailing lists myself. Same with the skills front, I do not have them. Like to comment more on mailing lists: It took me few days (open new account etc) just to post here. Because my other email service blocked it totally.  Gambas also is a big mailing list user etc etc project.....
 Been times where would even post to a forum: "said" project admin would say noone is reading the forums. Post to the mailing list instead and you will be helped.  I'm not totally  trying to whine just share what i see. Honestly and way it affects users who would maybe otherwise approach differently.  Sent suggestions to project leaders before bug reports but used forums. Where mailing list is involved it is so "not me" type.

Hey..

I think it would be nice to have some sort of forum to get people together around this project, but I don't know if it would expand the user base. I've always found mailing lists to be confusing and clunky, because they lack a nice and clean overview of topics/threads.
It is quite frustrating to see this project fail, when I really want to contribute something useful, as it is such a nice program. But I probably don't have the skills to manage the project or write any C++ code. I have some experience in python and php, but that doesnt help much. I would like to help, but don't know where to put my effort. Translating the application to all languages, will neither put this project further. First of all we need a project leader, who can tell people what to help with ;)

Hi,
I am sad to hear that Ktechlab is in decline. I would like to make a suggestion that could help to build up a
community of users and gauge interest in the project.
Some time ago I started a yahoo group to help get people together to translate KICAD (a GPL EDA suit) documentation
from French into English. This was a success and It helped to expand the user base.
Since then a user group and a developer group has been set up. The project is now very active and has attracted a lot of
professional developers.
I have also helped the programme be adopted at the university where I work as a technician. I use Kicad for all my PCB work
and it is increasingly being used by students.
Please tell me what you think of this suggestion and if there is a positive response I may set up a user group and act as moderator.
Or maybe a developer group would be more appropriate.
Please let me know what you think.
Thanks.
 
David
