Project Name: gobby

Target Audience: Fedora developers, especially package maintainers

Expiration Date (required): 2007-12-31


From the gobby package description: Gobby is a free collaborative editor. This means that it provides you with the possibility to edit files simultaneously with other users over a network. It supports multiple documents in one session and a multi-user chat.

This project would provide gobby services to Fedora users.

Packager use case: a packager puts up a rpm spec for collaborative review. Documentation use case: a doc editor puts up a draft for collaborative editing. Coding use case: a developer puts up a source file for collaborative hacking.

Project plan (Detailed):


To provide an easier group edit solution than pastebins or CVS. To facilitate package reviews and mentoring.
