“The Thing about Volunteers and Civility” (#modernperlbooks.com)

I copy the post The Thing about Volunteers and Civility by chromatic on modernperlbooks.com. Though the text refers to aspects of the Perl community, I believe the message is more general. The formatting (numbered list, etc) is mine. The thing about volunteers is that they don’t have to do what they’re doing. If you’re getting …

Ποιο είναι το λάθος του Hellug;

(σχετική προηγούμενη δημοσίευση για το ίδιο θέμα). Είναι ένα μεγάλο ερώτημα τι λάθος κάνει ο Hellug και δημιουργούνται καταστάσεις που περιγράφονται σε κάποιο βαθμό εδώ. Παρόμοιο ζήτημα υπήρξε πριν από επτά μήνες περίπου αλλά και παλαιότερα, και φαίνεται ότι επηρεάζουν την γενικότερη κοινότητα ΕΛ/ΛΑΚ στον ελληνικό χώρο. Είναι το λάθος με τους «άλλους» ή στον …

Code of conduct και ελληνικές κοινότητες ΕΛ/ΛΑΚ

Ένα πρόβλημα με τις κοινότητες ελ/λακ είναι ότι μερικά από τα μέλη δεν ακολουθούν τους τυπικούς κανόνες συμπεριφοράς, και αυτό έχει το αποτέλεσμα να δημιουργείται συχνά ένα αρνητικό κλίμα. Ένα πρόσφατο παράδειγμα είναι στη λίστα gnome-i18n, όπου ένας νέος μεταφραστής ήταν πολύ αρνητικός και προσβλητικός στη συμπεριφορά του απέναντι στο συντονιστή της συγκεκριμένης γλώσσας και …

Update on planet.ellak.gr

Planet EL/LAK (πλανήτης) is a blog aggregator of Greek-speaking users that work on free and open-source software. Though the users speak Greek, it is OK to write in English as well. We started in 2004 at http://xnum.sourceforge.net/PlanetHellas/ and quickly realised we had to move somewhere else. We enjoyed hosting at hellug.gr and in February 2007 …
