Re: Project proposal for the Debian Med group

Dear Debian Med members,
I hope this email finds you well, and that your projects are running smoothly.
Since I haven't heard back from you, I would like to know if there is anyone interested in the "TechneNotes" project (https://grovera.gitlab.io/technenotes/)

Besides all the software features that I have presented in my previous email, I believe that this project could be a great resource for the Linux community for three main reasons:
- I felt the need for a trustworthy open-source application able to store all my knowledge... a software that I could rely on for many years to come (without having to switch to another solution after a short time)
- simple and straightforward for programmers to make changes to the code and collaborate to the project
- no custom markdown syntax, so it plays nice with other softwares

Also, do you have any suggestions on how to make more people aware of this project? I've discovered that getting in touch with Linux News websites' editors can prove to be quite difficult.

Hoping to hear back from you soon, best regards

Guido Rovera

Dear Debian Med members,
my name is Guido Rovera and I am a medical doctor but also a linux user and an enthusiast developer.
I was referenced to the Debian Med group by a member of the debian-devel IRC channel.
I would like to submit a project proposal to the Debian Med group.
I have recently developed a linux-native open-source software called "TechneNotes" (https://grovera.gitlab.io/technenotes/ - see details below) that can greatly help medical doctors / scientists / researchers and developers to better organize their knowledge / research material and results.
I would like for this software to be packaged in order to facilitate its diffusion among linux users.
In the past I have already tried to learn how to create debian packages, but that task proved to be too complex and time-consuming; I came to the conclusion that I should focus on maintaining and improving the software. Therefore I am currently looking for a developer that is interested in the project and could package it for debian / ubuntu / mint.

Here are some details about the project.
TechneNotes is an open-source Linux-native (GTK) markdown note-taking software built for scientists and developers.
On the official website (https://grovera.gitlab.io/technenotes/) there is an introductory video that explains why TechneNotes was developed and how it may differ from other note-taking softwares (of course you can explore the software to discover even more).
Preview of TechneNotes features:
- performant database with support for hierarchical notes, pagination, ordering, and drag & drop functionalities
- Markdown editor with powerful formatting options, to create structured media-rich web pages without programming knowledge
- possibility to insert image/video galleries and links to local or remote files, to surpass the limitations of standard text documents
- multi-tabs support, links to other notes and content sharing between notes

Considering your interest in Linux and open-source, I wanted to inform you of this newly released open-source Linux application (official Github repository: https://github.com/grovera-md/TechneNotes), hoping that you could help me to make this project available to the community.

Best regards,

Guido Rovera (TechneNotes creator)
