About Project Features
Every project has a basic set of features available to it that support code development and project communication. Here are the features available to every project:
- Message Forums—Forums are message boards where your members can discuss the project. You can add up to five forums to your project.
- For general information on using forums, see About Forums.
- For information on managing the forum feature, see Message Forums on the Managing a Project page.
- Wiki—A project can have one wiki for project documentation purposes. A single wiki can have many pages. The default Home page for the wiki can be designated as the project's home page, as described at WikiHomePage.
- For general information on working with wikis in Project Kenai, see About Wikis.
- For information on managing the wiki feature, see Wiki on the Managing a Project page.
- Instant Message (IM) Chat— Each project can have a chat room that the project members use for instant messaging chats. You can use either the built-in chat client or your own chat client to connect to the chat room.
- For general information, see About Instant Message (IM) Chat, which tells you how to use the Project Kenai client and discusses how to install and use two popular chat clients.
- For information on adding and managing a chat room, see Project Chat Room on the Managing a Project page.
- Mailing Lists— You can add up to five mailing lists to your project. If you add an issue tracker, your project automatically gets an Issues mailing list tied to the issue tracking system. If you add a code repository, your project gets a Commits mailing list tied to the source control system.
- For general information on using mailing lists, see About Mailing Lists.
- For information on managing the mailing list feature, see Mailing Lists on the Managing a Project page.
- Source Code Repository—You can add up to five source code repositories to your project. You can use the Subversion, Mercurial, and Git repository servers hosted on this site, or you can specify your own external source code repository.
- For general information on working with source code management and repositories that have already been added to a project, see Source Code Management.
- For information on adding and managing source code repositories, see Source Code Repository on the Managing a Project page.
- Downloads—You can add a Downloads section where project administrators can put files for project members to download, such as the latest build of a project.
- For general information on working with Downloads in Project Kenai, see About Downloads.
- For information on managing the Downloads feature, see Downloads on the Managing a Project page.
- Issue Tracking— You can add up to two issue trackers to keep track of bugs and feature requests. Kenai provides two issue trackers, Jira and Bugzilla. If you already track issues on another site, you can link to that site instead.
- For general information on issue tracking, see About Issue Tracking.
- For information on adding and managing an issue tracker, see Issue Tracking on the Managing a Project page.
