well I have e-mailed the bloke that was doing the splash newsletter,

maybe we should list a few news storys to make it easier for him/someone to pick up

the items I can think of are:

0.2.6 release
reactos game (lots of posts on the forum and in the wiki)
maybe this thread maybe has enough content for a story http://www.reactos.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=634
USB update
networking update
next release rumors

the wiki, could have a artical


if I get time I will write one of them myself

Splash was a very good concept and I figure it was deserted because of the author's lack of interest, or having other things to do at the time. It needs to get running, that's for sure.

Would it be any help to add Splash working place under Press kit (wiki) :idea: , so any one could add news storys there. Then there should be one person who would check the texts from Press kit and publish them in Splash. This might make it easier, what you think :?:

yes, that seems a good idea, it will also get people used to doing press type things (ready for the 0.3 push)

A newsletter before the next release is needed IMHO.

the format of splash is good, but if it going to be a group effort we need to understand the framework, which seems to be. (roughy)


big story
Notable News
a large bug was killed
a hardware story
a working app story
network update (because everyone whats to know)
USB update (because everyone whats to know)
Recent SVN Activity

I think that whole point of splash is to provide what people want to know, with out them having to search the wiki or forum or go to IRC, a summary of the past months work.
people do need to see that loads of progress is being made.

I just want to add that the big brother of ReactOS Splash is called Linux Kernel Traffic. It might be a soure of insperation.

Because it's not an event ? (A Event for example is WineConf)
Where do you want ReactOS to go today ?
