Propose your project

Two kinds of projects

The Joinup platform supports two kinds of projects:

  1. Interoperability solution projects
  2. Open-source software projects.

Propose an interoperability solution project

Who can propose an interoperability solution project?

Any registered user can propose an interoperability solution project to be registered on Joinup.

How to propose your interoperability solution project?

  1. Click on "Project" under "Propose your... ", at the right-hand side of the page and select “Interoperability solution” in the dropdown of the form;
  2. A this point you have to fill in the form to create the project;
  3. Choose to submit for approval or save it as draft.

How the interoperabilty solution project is displayed when created?

Once created, the asset is displayed in the full list of interoperability solutions, under the “interoperability solutions” menu item.

Who reviews the proposed interoperability solution project?

A semantic asset cannot be published without approval from a moderator, or clearing process manager. He controls that the semantic asset meets the necessary requirements. The following steps are taken:

  1. Once you have proposed your semantic asset, the moderator will be notified and will check whether the project can be published;
  2. The moderator will contact you in case of non approval;
  3. The moderator will publish the semantic asset in case of approval.

Propose a Software project

Who can propose a Software project?

Any registered user of the platform can propose a Software project

How to propose a Software project?

  1. Click on "Propose your software" under "Propose your...", at the right-hand side of the page or click on “Software” in the main menu and Click on “Propose your software” at the top of the Software main page;
  2. A this point you have to fill in the form to create the software;
  3. Choose to submit for approval or save it as draft.

Who reviews the proposed software project?

A Software project cannot be published without prior approval by the platform moderator.  The moderator controls that the proposed software project meets the necessary requirements, in particular the 10 principles for open-source software on Joinup.

  1. Once you have submitted your software project, a moderator will be notified and will check whether the project can be published;
  2. The moderator will contact you in case of non approval;
  3. The moderator will publish the software project in case of approval.

How the Software project is displayed when created?

Once approved, the software is displayed in the full list of software, under the “Interoperability solution” menu item.

Who can download your project when created?

When creating a project, a project owner can decide to allow users to anonymously download release files. This is a setting you can alter in the description of your project while editing it.

By enabling this option, a user who is not logged in and attempting to download a release file will have to fill in a popup to decide whether he wants to:

  • provide a short feedback (the user will be forwarded to the login / registration page. After login, he will be redirected to the release page)
  • remain anonymous (the download starts immediately).

To allow anonymous download, tick the checkbox “Allow anonymous download” while filling the form to propose your project. When your project is created, you can further edit this setting by editing your project (?).

By default, “Allow anonymous download” is disabled. Why? The platform sends out a post-download survey to registered users who have downloaded an asset/software release to capture their feedback.

Subversion: source code repository

offers each project a free Subversion (SVN) version control system. A good introduction to Subversion (sometimes referred to as "SVN") can be found in this on-line book: http://svnbook.red-bean.com

How to display the Source Code Repository (SVN) link?

Joinup offers each project a Subversion (SVN) version control system.

However, not all projects make use of the SVN services. By default, the link to the SVN service is:

  • not displayed for Semantic asset project
  • displayed for Software project

To display the SVN link, tick the checkbox “Display the SVN link” while filling the form to propose your project. When your project is created, you can further edit this setting by editing your project (?)

How to display the WebDAV link?

Joinup offers each project a file sharing service (WebDAV).

However, not all projects do use WebDAV service. By default, the link to WebDAV service is not displayed.

To display the WebDAV link, tick the checkbox “Display WebDAV link” while filling the form to propose your project. When your project is created, you can further edit this setting by editing your project (?)

  • not displayed for Semantic asset projects
  • displayed for Software projects

To display the maven link, tick the checkbox “Display maven link” while filling the form to propose your project.
