 This program could be very useful. I hope someone will please consider packaging this for Pardus 2011.
Here is a link to the program homepage.http://www.ushahidi.com/
Here is the download page. http://download.ushahidi.com/
Here is a forum page entry by a user who has installed it on Ubuntu that may be useful. http://forums.ushahidi.com/topic/ubuntu-installation-documentation

Thanks

If you want a program you can create a account here and write a request for it:
http://bugs.pardus.org.tr/

Go in to "New package request"

Here is an example for DeadBeef audio player:

This program could be very useful.
I don't get it what this Ushadidi is doing.
in README;
Quote
   Manual Installation
   ~~~~~~~
   - Upload the unpacked/unzipped Ushahidi files to your server.
   - Create a database and note the connection credentials.
   - Make sure the appropriate files are writable by your web server (see "Preliminary Setup" above).
   - Copy or rename ./application/config/database.template.php to ./application/config/database.php.
   - Edit database.php and provide it with your database credentials.
etc, etc...
And this is a mystery to me

Thank you JohnA for your helpful response.
I am new to Linux and Pardus and I am totally lost with this stuff at this point.
I will try to learn the proper process for submitting program requests.
Being so pitifully helpless makes me really appreciate the work you guys put into all of this.

Atolboo, I was like you at first and this program didn't make any sense at all. I was originally hoping to find a prog that I could use for plotting locations and events on a world map. But this is so much more than that! I am just learning the many uses for this and I believe it could turn out to be one of the most important programs I've ever found. Basically it is a very fast method for anyone (even different dialects) to use most any communication method to share critical information in a speedy, relevant, and useful manner. Some of the videos at the home site help to show its many real life uses. This could turn out to be in the league of Facebook IMHO.
Thanks for taking a look at it.

As dar as I get the point this is a typical webbased application using (PHP) files on your webserver and a connection to a  (MySQL) database on that server.

(Comparable to e.g. certain forum software like SMF, MyBB, phpBB, blog software (e.g. WordPress, project management software, etct etc)

In essence these application only need an internet connection and a webbrowser, and for setting up a FTP file upload.

So I guess atolboo, like me, is somewhat puzzled why it is requested as a Pardus linux feature.

Does this mean that apart from the webbased application (you can set that up with Filezilla for FTP file transfer and e.g. phpMyAdmin to manage your databse) there is also some sort of client version software that needs to be installed on your local system?

I think its what users are used to, if for example they have come from ubuntu et al, you can install server software through the package manager that sets up a basic working local server(things like a lamp stack, tomcat,etc) , you then edit that to suite your needs.
