Making Macto into an OSS project? Volunteers needed

I don’t have the time to actually sit down and build Macto, but I got a couple of people asking about another option. Making Macto into an OSS project that will build this application under my guidance and assistance.

What do I have planned?

Assuming I manage to get a few people (and I’ll probably limit it to a small number), I’ll open a private mailing list and github repository and we will start working on that. I’ll provide guidance and direction for the project, as well as reviewing everything.

This is going to be a private project for about a month, after which we will hopefully have something at hand that we can talk about and show around.

Any volunteers?

Update: Comments are closed, we have enough volunteers

Do you have anything to say about this except for being a showcase OSS project? what Macto actually is?

Paul Cox

I'd love to get involved; my github username is coxp.

Not sure if it is outside the scope of the project, but I'd love to see some bounded contexts in there, maybe a basic staff management system or MI system? Most systems I've seen end up using a shared database.
