Dear SourceForge.net Developer,
With this sitewide update, I'm pleased to announce two new enhancements
to SourceForge.net. First, we've implemented new RSS feeds that are
accessible to all projects and developers to aid in the publishing of
information and project status to other sites. Second, SF.NET has added
two new download servers, including our first mirror in Australia.
Progress on IBM DB2's deployment on SF.NET continues. We are in the
final phases of testing before we rollout it out to SouceForge.net
itself. Currently, only mailing list archives are being powered by DB2.
As you might have noticed in recent weeks, SF.net's project search
database has been overwhelmed at times. As we roll out DB2 to the rest
of the site in April, we expect this issue, and other issues like it to
Finally, in this time of global political uncertainty, it is good to be
reminded that Open Source software has no boundaries. The work you do
on your Open Source project benefits countless individuals and nations
in every corner of the globe. Regardless of location, faith, or race,
developers are collaborating together to create software that will not
only benefit themselves, but all of humanity. At a time when it's hard
to see something positive in the news, remember in our own way, the
Open Source community is making a difference.
Thank you for supporting SourceForge.net and the Open Source software
As always, if you have a question or want to share feedback regarding
the site, please feel free to email me directly at email@example.com
New RSS Feeds.
A convenient way to keep up-to-date with the SourceForge.net site,
project news, activity information, and new projects is now available.
SourceForge.net provides a number of RSS feeds that may be accessed
using an RSS reader or aggregator (some content management systems also
allow you include data from an RSS feed on your website, much as
Slashdot and Freshmeat do in the right sidebar of their layout). Using
these RSS feeds, you can keep up-to-date with the latest project news
and file releases, Site Status updates and SourceForge.net statistics
(such as top projects).
Project-specific RSS feeds may now be accessed using the "View list of
RSS feeds available for this project" link on the Summary page for each
project. Information about the full set of the available
SourceForge.net RSS feeds (14 feeds, in all), including information on
the software needed to view RSS feed data and a complete list of the
options available for each RSS feed, may be found at:
New SF.NET Download mirrors.
SF.NET now has two additional download mirrors. The first, Flow
Communications, is our first mirror in Australia. We know, from
looking at statistics, that SF.NET has many enthusiastic developers
'down under'. We are very excited that SF.net now has a server in
Australia to allow users in that part of the world acquire files faster.
To learn more about Flow Communication, please visit their website at:
Our second new mirror is Aleron, located in Virgina, USA. Aleron
provides high-speed, high-performance Internet connectivity, data
transmission and value-added network applications for it's customers.
For more information, please visit their website at:
The SF.NET team would like to thank Flow Communications, Aleron, and our
other download partners, in helping distribute Open Source code and Open
Source binaries around the world. Currently SF.NET serves
approximately 500,000 files daily and these mirrors help a great deal in
providing global accessibility to all of the software generated by our
SourceForge.net's March 2003 Project of the month.
Keeping a team of people on task and well organized is a difficult
chore. There are timelines to meet, information to organize, and the
need to be more efficient. SourceForge.net's March 2003 Project of the
Month helps with all of these difficult issues. TUTOS, 'The ultimate
team organization Software', is a broad focused Open Source Application
targeted at making groups of individuals more successful when

The reason you are receiving this email.
When the SF.NET team sends out a site-wide email, we sometimes see
replies that look like this: "Hey! I didn't ask to be on this list! You
spammer. I hate you! I hate your dog! (insert other colorful phrases
here)". The truth is, when you registered on SourceForge.net there was a
check box that said "Receive Site-wide updates, low volume". You left it
checked when you submitted the registration form, hence you are
receiving this email. We send these updates every 4 to 6 weeks, so it
truly is low volume. However if you want off, this is not a problem.
