    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!

    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.

    Good luck.

    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!
