Do we want to advertise hosting space if people are thinking of writing
GNOME applications as part of a greater desire to create a more solid
GNOME/GTK+ developer community?

Advantages are that we would be more active in what our developers are
writing and see problems with development.  There would also be a path for
more maintainers in parts of the eco-system.  Also a place for new designers
to find tasks to do.

The engagement/marketing team could start reaching out to developers to
host their GTK+/GNOME project there.  The only issue would be to understand
the costs of hosting as that could be problematic in the long term.  It
could be a great problem to have provided we have stable funding sources.

Thoughts?

Having a hosting space for potential GNOME apps certainly would attract a
developer community, I believe.

If hosting space is an issue, at least a single space where developers and
designers could add a link and description to their project could energize
these developers/designers to be more active on the GNOME community. Nothing
like having your project receiving some attention ;)

Issues with hosting space seems like the only reason to not do so, but
if funds can be found to provide such, it seems like a great way to
build community and attract developers. Asking for space (or money to
provide it) may also be a great way to get funding, with easily
observable results. Perhaps Google, Red Hat or Canonical would be
interested in funding?
