Creating a Project

When you sign up with Project Kenai, you can create up to five projects. If you need to create more projects than this, you can either send an email or fill out a project request form, as described below at Requesting More Projects.

To create a project:

  1. Click the My Page button to go to your My Page.



  2. Click the CREATE PROJECT button near the top right of the page.

  3. On the Create Project page, fill out the required fields, the ones with an orange asterisk next to them. Here's a description of those fields:
    • Project name—( required) This name is used in the URL that points to your project. This name cannot be changed once you create the project. The name must start with a single lowercase letter followed by any combination of lowercase letters, numbers, and dashes. No spaces are allowed. The maximum length is 20 characters. (for example, kenai)
    • Project title—( required) A descriptive title that will be shown in lists of projects. Maximum of 40 characters. (for example, Project Kenai)
    • Description—( required) Enter a detailed description of your project, including development status. Maximum of 500 characters.
    • Tags—Tags are search terms that users can use to find your project. Since tags are separated with a comma or a space, if you want to group more than one word into a single tag, you need to use underlines or dashes. For example, cloud-computing, model_driven, unit-testing, social_network.
    • Source License—( required) The source code license that you require members of your project to agree to when they participate in, and especially when they contribute to, the project. You initially see a list of the top recommended Open Source Initiative (OSI) licenses. As described on the OSI site, these are licenses that are popular and widely used or with strong communities. You can click Show all OSI-approved licenses to see more.
      • If your project will use a license that isn't on the list, choose Other and follow the instructions at The Other License for Projects.
      • If you aren't sure which license to choose, just pick one for now. You can change the license later by opening the project and clicking Manage This Project.
  4. When you've made all your choices and you've read the terms of use, click the I ACCEPT. CREATE MY PROJECT. button near the bottom of the page to create the project.



  5. Your project is created, and you see the initial startup page.


    If you click Manage This Project , you can add features like a wiki, foums, a chat room, source code management, issue tracking, mailing lists, and a download area, and you can remove features, add users, and so on. For more information, see Managing a Project.

Requesting More Projects

When you first sign up with Project Kenai, you can create up to five projects. If you know you will need more projects than that, you can email kenai-admin@sun.com and request that you be allowed to create more projects.

Alternatively, if you have created all the projects you were allocated, you see the Request Project Creation button on your My Page. Click that button and fill out the form, and an email will be sent to the Kenai administrators requesting that you be allowed to create your new project (or projects if you want to create more than one). An administrator will contact you by email when your project request is approved, and you'll see the Create Project button enabled on your My Page. For step-by-step instructions, see below.

To request permission to create additional projects:

  1. Click the My Page button to go to your My Page.



  2. Click the Request Project Creation button at the top right of the page.

  3. In the Request Project Creation window, describe your project and click Send Request.



  4. An administrator will contact you by email when your request is granted, and you'll see the Create Project button enabled on your My Page.
