    No problem

    @GarthDB — figured this was easier than opening an issue… any specific reason why you didn't disable_external in the Rakefile?

    Hello,
    adam
    @esetera
    howsit
    anyone alive here? :)
    so, i have a question for the Open Source Design peoples...
    I'm just starting to develop a new project. It is founded in open source licenses and principles of sharing, transparency etc
    Andrew Stoker
    @AStoker
    It is pretty dead here :)
    adam
    @esetera
    ah. howdy :)
    its a pity
    i thought it to be a good initiative, is a shame if it died so early
    Andrew Stoker
    @AStoker
    Truly. I'm active on a few other gitter pages, so I saw this pop right up.
    I think people are still kind of interested, but not sure how to actually contribute/ask for help
    adam
    @esetera
    so, who started this and who is still involved?
    because i have a proposition
    Andrew Stoker
    @AStoker
    I first heard of this from a talk at ConvergeSE. Who is still involved, I don't know. The concept of Open Source is that everyone is involved. I just don't think as of right now there's a popular open source community for this
    Well shoot out your proposition, maybe we can get something moving

    so.... I think Open Source culture is pretty much not tooled for the development of good user facing products
    it is a tech-centric development methodology-culture, essentially
    so anyways...i want to change that in my own project (which uses open source licences)
    i think the question is not 'how can designers particpate'..i think the question is 'how do we set the right culture from the beginning'
    one where all contribs are contribs and valued equally
    we need the right tools, processes, language...the whole shooboodle
    and i'm prepared to put resources behind it to make it happen
    what i want to know, is how to start it off on the right foot and get designers in from the beginning (we are only just 4 months old)
    so i'd be keen to talk to anyone that would like to be part of creating amore diverse culture for the development of fantastic open source products (as opposed to infratruture)
    Andrew Stoker
    @AStoker
    So you're talking about putting resources out ahead of time to develop good ui components in an open source community (a community that has good ui components here and there, but mostly not)
    adam
    @esetera
    im talking about wanting to work with people that want to develop an inclusive, diverse culture for making products that are open source
    so, if anyone wants to be discuss this they can email me - adam@coko.foundation

    Hello, I'm workin as a UI/UX Designer at Tril. I'm planning to "open" all the editable files of the app, the styleguide, the animations, etc. I'm not sure if I should upload them to a public repo in GitHub or link them in Dribble shoots, or both. But anyway I where thinking in using the "open design" logo.
    Would that be correct?

    Oh... just read all posts since February and DesignOpen seems to be inactive. That's sad
    Andrew Stoker
    @AStoker
    Sad indeed :(

    @GarthDB
    Hi @nlhkabu
    We're a bit more active in Slack
    but our slack page is down at the moment - I can send you an invite directly if you'd like
    Nicole Harris
    @nlhkabu
    that would be great @GarthDB :) email is n.harris@kabucreative.com
    the main thing I wanted to share - I'm looking for people to help me user test PyPI (see https://gist.github.com/nlhkabu/a0b1ae0016a2641f6b79d9ace9110403)
    do you have ant idea of how I might be able to amplify this within the open source design community?

    Is this channel still active? I just came across this initiative and it seems really exciting. I would definitely love to contribute. I am a UI/UX Designer based in New Delhi, India.
