- Aug 4, 2011Hi,
Thanks for following up on this Marijane.
I just had an aha! moment - this is free software - and you have used it.
We need more announcements like this!
We should have used some of this brain space to discuss the tool.
Can I ask, did you find it easy to install, etc.

I am curious, how do you all define "commercial", as in "commercial announcement"? I ask because TemaTres in particular is an open source product primarily developed by a library school in Argentina. Is that commercial? I saw the announcement on the Code for Libraries list, a place where open source software announcements are very common. I don't think I would have forwarded the announcement if it were for a proprietary product produced by a private company. (Nor would I have forwarded it if I hadn't used older versions of the software myself.)-marijaneOn Thu, Aug 4, 2011 at 8:17 AM, Alice <aredmondneal@...> wrote:
I am primarily a taxonomist who also wears a vendor hat, so I'm especially attuned to all the commentary about vendors' roles in the community and the importance of avoiding blatant promotion in this context. I know some promotional stuff has snuck in--I object strongly to extended posts about "new features". On this post, it was fine up to "Details below." I do not feel press releases or other commercial announcements belong in the discussion portion. However, such announcements have value and shouldn't be banished. They might be segregated somehow, with a link that people can choose to follow or not, and they should be limited in length and frequency.
Jenny, I second Patrick's thanks for the survey opportunity. Just needed a little space for a comment (opening a can of worms).
