Submit Collector and article


Hello,

I would like to ask what are the conditions to submit a collector to
Novell (to make it official, free and contain my real name with email
address) and how can somebody submit it (email, this forum etc)?
The collector has to contain pdf and odt documentation, the clz.zip,
source code and anything else?

I would like to submit some articles in to the forum and I read the FAQ.
Will somebody read before the submitted article or it will go alive?

Thank you for your answers!

Re: Submit Collector and article

A few options are open for this:

1. Not making it official, but having it available from Novell/NetIQ, you
could post your collector and documentation as a CoolSolution on the
Communities site. This would get you some points that you can, when
desired, redeem for money at amazon.com and some reputation as a collector
developer as found by Google.

2. You could potentially enter an enhancement request and include your
business case, and then upload your developed plugin to the bug as a
solution. How quickly it will be looked-at, tested, and released,
probably depends a lot on how many other customers value the same code,
plus what other priorities are within engineering. I've never tried this,
as I usually go with #1.

So as Aaron mentioned, you can always and we encourage people to post to
Cool Solutions. You can always do that and you don't even have to ask.
For what you need there, we haven't formalized requirements, but
basically "What will your collector parse/not parse", "How do you get
data into your collector", "What software versions/products does it
support" need to be very clearly written in the doc if you want people
to feel comfortable using it. (I'm just repeating the very strong
feedback we ourselves have received over the years)

Now, if you are interested in having us product-ize the collector, send
me a PM and let's talk!
