I would start with posting news items with a call for help on open source news websites (I'm thinking of the french linuxfr.org, but there may be other similar and more global websites. I could set up an advert on idealist (example: ) and ask readers to contact the public Haiku-inc email. This advertisement could then be shared around on the tech news websites. ...

Gurock Testrail is another commercial tool that is highly intuitive, has a python api client that could be connected to buildbot's release management system [9] and it already has great trac integration [10]. Its website states that open source projects should fill out a form or email them to find out how to get free licensing, however form is redirecting to their main page. Should I contact Gurock and see if the offer still stands ? Cheers, ...

We need a PHP developer to help us jump to Drupal 8 (or whatever PHP CMS we pick). Catchafire can get us free help with the strategic/preliminary work [1][2][3][4], but we will need someone to manage and implement the change over. I'm pretty proficient in PHP. I'm busy ATM, but I do have a copy of vmweb to play around with and try to get working with Drupal 8. So I can handle of [1-4] as well as the change itself. Although [2] [4] can be done in house, the other 2 should be done by a ...

Use a corporate recruitment tool. Haiku is almost ready for Beta. That means it's time to start thinking about professional support staff. Which we don't have the money to pay for. I neglected to say that the three corporate recruitment tools that I gave as examples (Qandidate, TalentSquare and RecruiterBox) are free to use for the basic usage. Qandidate and TalentSquare only ask for a commission when posting jobs to non-free job search websites (plus background checks and other things we ...

One of the reasons why the build process consists of two phases (configure and jam) is because jam can't do certain things like executing a command (e.g. gcc --version) and processing its output. Even if it could, there are certain checks -- like this -- we really don't want to do in order to avoid slowing the build warm-up down.

Fabrice Bellard's BPG format seems to be gaining some leverage, and is touted to replace JPEG. Might be a good idea to write a translator for it.

It's still there, the access key is SHIFT. Though, stacking through S&T is probably more convenient.
