Is it appropriate to make a product announcement in "Announcements"?

(Doug Turnbull) #1

Before I get labeled a spammer, I wanted to ask this question :). Would it be an appropriatte use of this forum to announce that we have a product that supports Elasticsearch. In particular, I would like to announce that our product Quepid now supports Elasticsearch. I would do this under "Announcements."

I have seen in other open source projects, namely Solr, there's a fairly laissez faire attitude here. For example, this post on the Solr mailing list announcing their Fusion product.

What's the guidance here?

Hey Doug,

First off, thanks for checking about this!

While things do tend to be pretty laissez-faire around here too, we try to keep the posts in the Announcements category to announcements about Elastic projects and plugins.

There is another category named Ecosystem that seems like a better fit. May I suggest posting over there?

I've made a few minor edits in the section "about" posts to help clarify :slight_smile:
