    Default Anzwix Is Finally Ready To Launch This Month

    Phoronix: Anzwix Is Finally Ready To Launch This Month

    After being in private development and usage for years, Anzwix is finally set to make its public debut...

    Thumbs up Way to go

    I hope this helps you save time and make more money, we need Phoronix to stick around for a long time and not end up like The H.

    So in lamens terms it's a sort of web crawler that picks up on certain terms you define to find you interesting content?

    It's not exactly a crawler as it's much more computationally-focused news evaluation system (the back-end system runs fulltime on a 12-core Intel CPU with 16GB of RAM and 6TB of storage for evaluating just all this open-source activity) in evaluating content as opposed to simply seeing if something contains certain words. The back-end system is designed similar to some high-frequency tracing news-based trading systems but with more focus on cross-linking content and time-saving optimizations for me (writer). Will be much more clear when it's open, but among the features:

    - For saving time, when a version of a program is bumped in Git, most commits are just changing the version number, but in loading it on one page on Anzwix it's trying to locate any documentation/NEWS file and extracting the relevant news/changes for that release and displaying that too. Or if there is no in-tree change-log to then automatically re-evaluate the weight of all commits in a given release to generate its own change-log on the most potentially interesting changes.

    - The weight of activity is based upon author and his/her relevance within the project, size of changes, certain terms, average size and weight of activity in trailing days, etc. Also logic for trying to rule out trivial code changes, code restructuring, etc.

    - Presenting related commits given to the commit being viewed so if not familiar with the project and its terminology, etc, that related information will be displayed to hopefully better analyze what's going on.

    - Collectively showing views of information upon releases. If a release has just been tagged of a project in Git, to then also show all mailing list activity, related Project blog posts, and other content related to that version.

    Various other features to be talked about in the coming days.

    Thanks. Yes, it's already been an incredible convenience and time-saver for years and is only growing more powerful. Hopefully with the public version and ads it will be able to yield additional revenue as well.

    What's the chance that someone will start a competitor using it?

    Hmm I am wondering what the usefulness would be in opening it up to the public since it's so specialised for Phoronix? Would users be able to access it to get it to look for their own key words they can define? So for me for example it wouldn't be very useful since I run GamingOnLinux.com, but could I use it to search for Linux gaming news for example (since we aren't exactly competitors since your main focus isn't games).

    Also I've sent you an email. Your PM box always seems to be full.

    Potentially, but the public Anzwix won't be as full featured, etc. Might later make it to Premium-only or something if it causes problems.

    A better mailing list / Git viewer. Open-source games with Git repos will be accessible in there.

    What are the licensing terms? Do you allow derivative works?
