New Community Project Questionnaire
This questionnaire is intended to be filled out by community members who wish to initiate a new Liferay Community Project.

You will be contacted by a community representative to finalize your proposal.

Note that the name can be anything you want, but should not be too generic, as the name is often the first and only thing people look at when deciding whether to investigate your project further.

This field is mandatory.

Use as much space as you need. You should answer things like: Motivation for the project, Goals of the project, Benefits of the technology (for both developers and end users), Relationship to Liferay (how does the project take advantage of Liferay’s features?), and other relevant information. Note that this text will be referenced when creating the initial project’s description on the project home page, so make it good!

This field is mandatory.

For each founder, please include: Full Name, Company (optional), Title, Link to Liferay.com profile, and Contact information (email, Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, blog, other)

Each member must eventually have a liferay.com account, so for each member, include a link to their liferay.com profile. If they do not yet have an account, indicate as such.

You will need a way for your project to track the status of issues that arise during development. You can use an external site, or even a forum thread or wiki page as a lightweight alternative.

This field is mandatory.

For example, is this project just an idea of yours, or do you have an initial design, or is there already an initial version that is mostly complete?

Once approved, your project’s pages will be added to http://liferay.com/community/projects and relevant announcements will be made to inform the community. You should also advertise and recruit new members for your project, to help make it successful!
