Topic: Community Widgit Suite
I've noticed quite a bit of discussion about the ethics/legality (mostly legality) of acquiring widgets that existed on the original server. Since the general ruling is not to use most (if not all?) of the original widgets, why doesn't this community work on making some very simple apps, possibly to test later on with the stub server?
I don't know if this is being done, or there is a reason not to, but this idea just came to me. I know that Duane is focusing right now on just getting the server stable with what he has, but in the future if the server is starting to look promising, this idea might not be a bad one...
It would not only begin to repopulate the Chumby with apps, but it would also help test out the functionality of adding specific widgets and we wouldn't have to worry about licensing. (Assuming they were created under some sort of public license)
Has this idea already been approached/is common sense?
