Crowd-Funding of New Tuleap Features

Take the power to decide what comes next!

Over the past year, the Tuleap community has grown a lot. Increasingly, we are hearing:

“I have a need for a new Tuleap feature. How can I get it implemented?”

At Enalean, we are listening. As the primary Tuleap contributors, we feel it is our duty to find a way to hand-over the Tuleap future enhancements to the community as much as possible. We would like to make it easier for community members to suggest, discuss and most importantly choose the next Tuleap features- whether they represent small businesses or large organisations.

After some serious brain-storming, we would like to present the following proposal:

 

To sum up, this is crowd-funding for new Tuleap developments could work.
 

– Every registered Tuleap user would be allocated stars to highlight their favourite features to develop. You can use your stars on any existing feature request. If there’s something missing then just add the feature you would like to have.
– Once a feature receives enough stars, Enalean team would estimate the effort required to develop the feature.
– That estimation is then directly translated into a funding target. Any interesting people get in touch with Enalean and choose to contribute fully or partially towards features. A new discussion forum would appear alongside. It would facilitate discussions about features and ultimately decide other people to crowd-fund features with you.

 

 

Imagine, you could highlight your favourite features in the Tuleap backlog like that.
 

“The crowd-funding of new Tuleap enhancements would be the natural evolution of a fully open-source product such as Tuleap. For some time now, we have been searching for a way to allow every type of Tuleap user to have a say on how Tuleap is developed. We believe this would go a great way to enabling that.”-Manon Midy at Enalean.

You think this idea is cool? Great!
