I personally believe that the OpenVMS Hobbyist program is a great asset to HP and OpenVMS. But I have been challenged to show the return to OpenVMS from this program. My hope in this process we can work toward getting access to patches for the OpenVMS Hobbyist community. No guarantees, but I have to try.
So I am asking you, the OpenVMS Hobbyists, what Open Source applications have you ported? What utilities have you developed? Where are they published? What have you done as far as possibly participating in field test programs?
Were you an "early adopter" of new releases? Did you submit either official or unofficial bug reports? If so when? To whom? What was the issue?
The detail and the more information we have the better in building the case.
Thanks for listening and I look forward to getting this information.
malmberg December 12 2017 HPE only makes the most current version of OpenVMS Alpha / IA64 /VAX available to hobbyists. When I had access to the Alliance 1 program it was the same. No public downloads are allowed by HPE.

malmberg September 10 2017 https://sourceforge.net/p /vms-ports/wiki/VMSInstal lation/ For the most part just use VMS 6.1 media instead of 7.3. But why run the older release?
