Here is a ticket to discuss about future of FreshRSS.

TL;DR: I want to work on other projects, I have no time to spend on FreshRSS. So we need to finish what I started: give FreshRSS' keys to community.

These days I can't find motivation to work on FreshRSS. Many reasons for that but the main one is because I feel FreshRSS is nearly complete. Of course, I have a lot of ideas to improve FreshRSS but I can't find a way to not break everything and to rebuild everything :). I have no time for that and it's probably not a good idea.

My idea is to give the keys to the community so you can continue the work (and restart FreshRSS if you want :p). Here's a list of tasks I have to finish before starting my new big (and probably awesome :D) personal project:

  • Buy a dedicated VPS for FreshRSS (there is no problem for me to pay for that, I still love and use FreshRSS :))
    • Install web server
    • Install mail server / mailing lists

      • Document favicon fetching
      • Document lib_rss
      • Document multi-themes
  • Document release (see FreshRSS/documentation#12)
    • Git process
    • Services to update
    • How to communicate
    • Start new development version
  • Document auto-update process (see FreshRSS/documentation#12 too)
    • Write new script
    • Update version.php
    • Update
    • Test
    • Update
  • Document documentation (yeah \o/) and publication (see FreshRSS/documentation#13)
  • Document how-to write and publish blog post
  • Explain how I see a potential FreshRSS redevelopment (it could be really awesome and well-designed :])
  • Release FreshRSS 1.2

Tell me if you think I forgot something. That's a lot of work so feel free to help me to accomplish this big last piece of work. I tried to determine tasks as atomic as possible in order to give me more motivation.

S'il te faut quelqu'un pour gérer le serveur, j'suis là ! :)

Oh c'est gentil ! :) Mais tu ne vas pas aimer : je prends toujours du CentOS :p Ceci dit j'hésite à prendre une Debian cette fois-ci mais j'ai peur de la migration depuis mon serveur actuel. On peut toujours en discuter par email si tu veux (mais à priori il n'y a pas grand chose à faire, je suis plutôt preneur de conseils sur l'aspect automatisation de l'installation)

I discover this script recently and it's great! 👍 (this is a motivation to work on FreshRSS! 👍 )
I hope the community can continue the work, but your support is important.
In the next weeks I finish the italian translation and I make my contribution.
