First, sorry for my english
I've upgraded the python plugin made by Mr Jurgiel "Profile", witch is now able to work with polyline, with on the fly projection of raster, and with multi-band raster. I'm "amateur" developer, and i think i'm quite representative of people who don't know so much about development, but want humbly to contribute ...
I wanted to join Mr Jurgiel to see if there's a place (like git..) where i can find and modify the source. but i found nothing.
Then, readinq qgis web pages, i learned that there is the site "http://plugins.qgis.org/" where plugin can be shared. I registered and shared the plugin.
also, i decided to create a project under http://hub.qgis.org/projects/qgis-user-plugins, as recommended
So, i've got some questions and remarks :
- If Mr Jurgiel see my post, does he let me the right to share the plugin, whitch is under GNU LGPL ? (Do i need his agreement? - there's a copyright with his name on the top of .py code, what does it involve ?)
- How do i know that the plugin is validated on http://plugins.qgis.org/ ? And if he's not, how do i know why ?
I think that de validation procedure is quite complicated, everybody should put a plugin on http://plugins.qgis.org/. Maybe enabling comments about the plugin on this page should be a good way to :
-know if the plugin is good or not,
-simply have remarks about the plugin, without opening the tracker procedures. That is simplier for lot of people.
-Then, creating a project on http://hub.qgis.org/projects/qgis-user-plugins, i didn't succeed in creating project within the qgis-user-plugins projet. is it normal ? I 've read that the admin of the site is moving plugin ? Also, how enabling maximum of people to contribute on this plugin ?
To conclude, i'm not a pro, but i have good intentions. if the basic procedure is explained on http://plugins.qgis.org/, some points are not explained, and amateur like me could be quite lost :
how do i know if the plugin shared is validated ? how long does it take ? and if not validated, why ?
how do i create a project within qgis-user-plugins project ?
thank you for your attention and your answers,
