We received a good number of bug reports as well for platforms/configurations that the software wasn't tested on, so that was exciting too. It is my impression that we're doing well interacting with developers on the lists. There are a few things that I wanted to ask people to remember when developing with us:

    Please submit bugs and patches via the SourceForge tracker.

    For those of you submitting ideas for featured projects, please know that these must have something to do with either Google or the projects we've released.

Please submit general questions and such to the discussion mailing list, not to Also, thanks so much for the many terrific featured project submissions.
