Redirect[edit]

We would like to add a page about OpenProject, a web-based open source project management and team collaboration software. How should we proceed, considering that OpenProj is currently being redirected to from the OpenProject site? 217.92.230.129 (talk) 07:45, 8 October 2012 (UTC)

Replace the redirect text with the content for OpenProject article on OpenProject's page. --ConCelFan (talk) 06:02, 25 June 2013 (UTC)

Notability[edit]

Supervisors asked for secondary sources, we have added some.

It is true that up to now the main focus of OpenProject does not reside in news magazins nor technical reviews; the notability of OpenProject also comes from the fact that

  • global players (Siemens, Telekom) rely on OpenProject collaboration tools,
  • that about 15 developers work full time on OpenProject,
  • that the development efforts and activities of OpenProject surpass the activities of the ancestor project Redmine by far.
  • The notability can be stated from the fact that OpenProject won the 1st prize of the Berlin Open Source Competition.

Magazin reviews will follow as soon as the next major software version is released in September 2013. -- Nicmarwin (talk) 18:16, 7 August 2013 (UTC)

Until they are available there is nothing to show WP:notability. The sources given are not sufficient and the arguments given above are not part of the notability criteria. Winning a regional award is not necessarily notable in itself. noq (talk) 20:23, 7 August 2013 (UTC)

Accuracy[edit]

The claims in the initial paragraph seem inaccurate, or ambiguous enough that they'd be difficult to either confirm or refute. For example:

Since its inception, the speed of development and the number of developers of OpenProject [6] exceeds the speed of its ancestor project Redmine by far.[7]

Firstly, how do you define "speed of development"? Secondly, this claim is made by comparing the repository statistics for OpenProject and Redmine. However, it's not actually using the correct repository for Redmine; it's using an unofficial mirror of the repository. The actual repository for Redmine is here:

http://www.redmine.org/projects/redmine/repository

And if you look at the statistics for the official repository here:

http://www.redmine.org/projects/redmine/repository/statistics

It actually looks like Redmine often has more commits in a month than OpenProject. — Preceding unsigned comment added by JangoSteve (talkcontribs) 19:41, 14 October 2014 (UTC)

Completely agree with that! I put a tag MarmotteiNoZ 19:36, 23 May 2016 (UTC)

Don't think so. Last month again there were more commits in OpenProject. I also don't see why the Redmine mirror on GitHub is irrelevant. Nicmarwin (talk) 08:38, 27 July 2016 (UTC)
