Hmm...see my other email. I think we can make better use of LP: bug
tracker, blueprints, translations, answers and (hopefully) code as well.

Well, many people code or, at least, help different kind of projects
although not necessarily interested  100% for them.

True - Debian & Ubuntu are important distros. 

I also do not use git and prefer not to learn it. However, bzr or hg are
nice and popular DVCSs, so using them for code won't be big barrier for
potential developers.

Sebastian> If you have any idea on how to capture the attention of

Sebastian> GNUmed. 

Why not trying to activate LP more?

Having some nice blog post in a proper place, can make wonder sometime.

I'll think more about it...

Sebastian> Of these many are on MS WIndows. Which in itself is no

True. Maybe it's possible to simplify it.

Sebastian> For MS Windows we think about a one-in-all version which
Sebastian> ships python etc. For the time being we lack the resources to

I believe that potential developer should be able to install development
tools, otherwise, he is more in 'users' group.

Sebastian> I have experimented with py2exe and the likes in the past and
Sebastian> even had a thumb drive version but it needs a dedicated
Sebastian> maintainer for this.

However, there is installer for the GNUmed?

Sebastian> Right now we support: Debian, openSUSE, Mandriva, Fedora,
Sebastian> Ubuntu, Windows, MacOSX. We are looking for maintainers that
Sebastian> focus on one platform and act when a new relase comes out.

Gentoo ebuild would be nice. If we manage to simplify it a bit, I can
ask my friend running Gentoo to submit ebuild (I was running Gentoo for
5years, but now I use Arch Linux.)

Sebastian> Debian/Ubuntu is well covered but the other one need a
Sebastian> maintainer. I have build packages for all of these archs so I
Sebastian> can mentor if someone steps up.

Let me think about it...
