What is the purpose of this site?
On http://features.openthinclient.org you can see possible extensions of the openthinclient software.
We as company behind the open source project try to find customers willing to pay a part of the development expenses of each feature.
What can I see here?
Here you can see possible future extensions of the openthinclient software, so-called "features". For the implementation of a feature a development expense is necessary, the cost of each is shown. Furthermore, you will see the total sum of the investments and who are the customers in detail. The duration indicates until when money for this feature can be collected.
How do I use this site?
Top right are next to each other the buttons: "CURRENT", "EXPIRED", "REALIZATION" and "AVAILABLE". The buttons are blue when they are switched on and gray when they are turned off.
If you, for example, want to see which features are currently in the implementation phase, then set the "REALIZATION" button on blue and all other on gray.
Why should I participate in a feature?
The development costs of a feature for a single customer are often too high. Quite often we hear the statement that this feature would also be interesting to other customers.
With feature-bid several customers can pay a part of the development expneses and the costs are shared between many stakeholders.
The faster the development effort is reached by bids, the sooner this feature will be implemented.
How can I get involved?
In order to participate financially in a feature, right click on the tab "PARTICIPATE" and then click the "DOWNLOAD" button. Then download the financial participation agreement as PDF. Please fill out this contract and send it to the openthinclient gmbh via fax.
When are the data updated?
The data will be updated manually by the openthinclient gmbh. This occurs about once a day.
When will a feature be implemented?
Once the development effort is achieved, openthinclient gmbh will start with the implementation of the feature. The estimated time is noted in the description of the feature.
You can see the features that are currently in development by selecting the "REALIZATION" button.
What happens if I alreade have paid and the time has expired but the bids has not yet reached the development expense?
When the time has expired and the development expense was not achieved, there are two possibilities: Either the openthinclient gmbh decides nevertheless to implement the feature, or the decision is against an implementation, then you get your money refunded within three business days.
