Отворени послови на GRASS пројекту

Растућа инфраструктура и обимна корисничка подршка захтјевају више напора да се интегришу корисничке донације и да се одржи ажурност. ова страница садржи листу послова за које су нам потребни добровољци. Описи ових послова могу дјеловати превише формално, али правилно осликавају потребе.

Волонтери на веб сајту (отворено)

Неколико волонтера за одржавање веб сајта су потребни ради посла на ажурирању и одржавању постојеће структуре. Циљ би могао бити прелаз на CMS систем као Drupal који захтјева веће напоре. Волф Бергенхајм (Wolf Bergenheim) је тренутно задужен за припрему ОСГео базираног сервера за GRASS.


  • познавање стандардног HTML кода (једна PHP функција је упослена за формирање менија)
  • вољност да се користи едитор обичног текста за писање страница(да би се избјегло гомилање вишка HTML кода)
  • фамилијарност (или ворност за учење) са GRASS-овим веб сајтом CVS (види инструкције)
  • програмерске вјештине нису потребне


  • ажурирање застарјелих страна
  • размисли о кориштењу "корисничких прича" да би сајт био занимљивији
  • размисли о превођењу важнијих страна
  • поједностављење структуре
  • додавање нових скриншотова са Криејтив Комонс лиценцом
  • редовна провјера функционалности мирор сајтова

Процјена потребног времена:

  • у просјеку: 1 или више сати недјељно

Вики менаџер (отворено)

GRASS вики (тренутно га користите) захтјева стално надгледање.


  • basic knowledge of mediawiki usage
  • no programming skills required


  • update outdated pages
  • simplify structure where needed (merge pages)
  • clean up Orphaned pages (link, merge or remove)
  • keep Categories up to date (add at bottom of pages where needed)
  • keep an eye on spammers

Развој графичког дизајна (отворено)

We need someone with good graphic design skills to maintain the artwork used in the various GUIs and the web site. The initial priority is to rework the icons used in the various GUIs and clean up the screenshot gallery.


  • Graphic design, graphic design software
  • Artistic
  • A sufficient level of familiarity with the GIS in order to capture the precise meaning of a button's task in a simple picture.
  • No programming experience needed, but it would be helpful if willing to learn a little Tcl in the short term and more wxPython in the long term. (present and future GUI frameworks)
  • Manage binary files in CVS. (fairly simple to learn)


  • Create new icons for the various GUIs
  • Work with website manager to create, solicit, and maintain screenshot gallery
  • Work with the GUI team to perfect GUI layout and menu presentation.
  • Help promotion and newsletter teams in preparing logo banners, layout ideas, etc.

прихваћене позиције (предложене овдје)

вођење документације

NEWS: Kindly accepted by Eric Patton

GRASS documentation (HTML/MAN pages) need to be frequently revisited and updated. Some pages are still lacking examples or clarity.


  • knowledge of standard HTML (ASCII editor is preferred over HTML editor)
  • willingness to use plain text editors to write pages (to avoid that HTML cruft creeps in)
  • familiarity (or willingness to learn use) with GRASS Web site CVS (see instructions)
  • no programming skills required
  • excellent knowledge of English language (native speaker preferred)


  • update outdated manual pages
  • homogenize style and layout
  • add relevant graphics/screenshots with credits/CC license into page
  • receive and merge contributions from external contributors; remove offensive HTML tags not understood by g.html2man (say: reduce to simple HTML - see instructions)

Estimated workload:

  • in average: 1-x h per week


NEWS: Kindly accepted by Carlos Dávila

The translations manager is responsible for maintaining the translation of GRASS messages (translation page; [ mailing list)


  • knowledge (or willingness to learn use) of translation tools (kbabel, poEDIT)
  • familiarity (or willingness to learn use) with CVS (see instructions)
  • no programming skills required


  • work with GRASS CVS-Head (latest GRASS)
  • merging translation contributions (with 'msgmerge' of .po files or simply use
  • invite translators to contribute (ask regularly, find new), make them use recent GRASS
  • create template files for new languages ('make pot')
  • update existing translations after having received latest submissions from translators ('make update-po')
  • keep headers of .po files intact and up-to-date
  • add new translators to AUTHORS file in source code

Estimated workload:

  • in average: 1-2h per week or less

Представник за односе са јавности

NEWS: Kindly accepted by Malte Halbey-Martin

Despite the continuous growth of the user community, we seek "GRASS GIS awareness" especially for public administration and companies. A multi-language brochure is needed to promote GRASS in a more effective way. Funding for a high quality print is to be defined.


  • communication and design skills


  • find like-minded people to form a GRASS promotion group
  • communicate the existence of the GRASS project
  • design of a multi-language brochure (both PDF and printed) in collaboration with the OSGeo-VisCom team
  • create material to illustrate the GRASS functionality
  • contact public administration and professionals in a non-spammy way
  • collect success stories and render them usable for the Web site


While we have to figure out the process, here a list of interested people. Please add yourself:

  • Dylan Beaudette: Web site contributor (familiar with Drupal CMS)
  • Scott Mitchell: Web site contributor, could possibly do the translation job, if nobody with translation tool experience volunteers
  • Brad Douglas: Public Relations contributor (co-maintainer)
