BeOS & Derivatives Every now and then, the Haiku mailing lists explode with emails about something called the distribution guidelines. The Haiku guys set up a set of guidelines with regards to use of the Haiku trademarks and logos; the "Haiku" name may not be used in the distribution's name, official trademarks and logos must be excluded, but the Haiku icons and artwork may be used. In addition to these cosmetic and trademark issues, the guidelines explain what is needed in order to receive the official "Haiku compatible" logo.

Easy testing is a good thing

I'm not a software developer, but as a web developer and designer I do have other skills that could be useful for the project. But I'm not going to pay attention to any project that actively makes it hard for non-developers to get involved.

From my perspective it's a good thing to have "distros" at an early stage, it lets me gauge to some extent what progress has been made. And please don't point out that "distros" may contain non-functional software, I'm well aware of that fact.

This snobbery seriously dampens my desire to take part in the project at all.

Can you be more specific on how we make it hard for non-developers to get involved?

In your specific case, please join the haiku-web mailing list here...

...send an email introducing yourself and tell us in what areas you would like to help out. We have a small team there working on a number of web-related projects that you may be able to contribute to.
