Make a project site.• Answer the newcomers questions.• Aimed toward the end users. • Users who are not as ninja as you.• Make download + install incredibly obvious.• It can be on github, but not the default github project page.
Get your own domain.• Not tied to github, in case things change.• $10/year = dirt-cheap investment• Which is easier to remember? • http://github.com/petdance/ack • http://betterthangrep.com/
I am happy to suggest use cases that Ihave found useful. What is the best way -to mailing list, on a wiki somewhere,email to you.Dont quite feel up to being moreproactive. I am dyslexic and find writingstuff hard (and finishing of writing etc).
Thank you• Put yourself in the newbies shoes.• Make a project home page outside Github.• Visible, documented releases matter.• Optimize for others, not yourself.• Use Github to encourage your community, not fend it off.• Thank you for listening and for Githubbing.
