I've seen the Ohloh open source directory come up from time to time and looked around a bit in the past, but I had never done anything serious with it. But Jeffrey Altman put a lot of work into registering OpenAFS there and making the project page nice, and that was enough to spur me into registering and creating an account.

It's been fun tracking down and claiming my contributions to various projects and seeing what was already registered. I've also registered WebAuth, remctl, and kstart. I'm not sure where to draw the line on registering projects, but at least pam-afs-session, Term::ANSIColor, wallet, and podlators probably make sense. I have tons of smaller projects, and I'm not sure how many of those I should create pages for and make the Ohloh folks poll for activity.

I'm not sure yet if I'm going to do anything with the journalling features over there. The news RSS feed for each project makes me want to go implement the idea I had a while back for generating RSS feeds per project using the NEWS files, though. That would be fairly easy to do.
