So, over the past year or so, I’ve been working on a project I’m calling Portrait. It’s [going to be] a piece of open-source software system administrators can use to manage Linux computers. Unfortunately, there’s still a fair amount of work to be done on Portrait, because my free time is pretty sparse. I’d also like to launch a hosted version of Portrait, which people can use if they don’t want to deal with setting up and maintaining a copy of the software. To help get both of those things moving, I’ve set up a Kickstarter project, titled simply Portrait: Linux System Management Tool to raise funds to let me work on Portrait over the summer and set up a hosted version that people can use.
Most of my readers won’t personally have any use for a Linux system management tool, but if you happen to know anyone you think might find it useful, I’ll ask you to please pass the Kickstarter project along to them. If you’re interested yourself, please head on over to the Kickstarter project page, where I’ve put much more information on exactly what Portrait will do.
