For a long time, The GNOME Foundation has been discussing how to make
it more possible to partner with other organizations. Lately we have
been talking about how to better promote organizations that do GNOME or
GTK+ consulting. There is also value in providing some way to promote
organizations that wish to donate or provide resources to The GNOME
Foundation. Perhaps we should be working to solve the larger problem?
I was thinking about the thread Martyn started earlier based off the minutes and of course how to get organizations that do consulting for GNOME and GTK+ involved and I thought that a mailing list on how to integrate GNOME into your environment or device might be an appropriate channel for these things. Companies and individuals like sysadmins can talk about how to integrate GNOME into their customer environment. Using a .sig, individuals or companies can advertise that they are available for hire as an option.
I don't know how successful it will be, but I know on gnome-shell-list we do have a lot of people who are sysadmins and they do talk about issues of integration for what they are doing which is which lead to my inspiration about having something involving sysadmins, hardware experts etc.
As Brian pointed out, it will require some infrastructure to be able to advertise and encourage this kind of thing. Building up a set of experts who can help integrate I think would help a lot of smaller companies adopt GNOME for their desktop and embedded devices need and also build a market for consulting, but we need a central place to allow for that kind of thing.
Since, nobody has responded. I'm going to assume this is a good idea and I'm going JFDI. I'll probably need to figure out a charter for this mailing list. Details on the blogs, and I'm going to do some recruitment.
