Here is how it works:
Step 1: Visit the BitNami Contest page. This page displays the current top-voted apps. Do you see your favorite app listed? Click on the 'vote' button to vote for it.
Step 2: To help your app climb to the top of the list, use the share buttons to tell your friends to vote via Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc.
That's it! At the end of every two week period, we will take the app with the most votes and create a BitNami Stack for it. It will be added to our library, so we will keep the new BitNami Stack up to date as new versions of the application and dependencies are released.
If you don't see the app you want us to add on the list, visit our search page and either click on the app in the list or type the name into the search box. If the app is already in our catalog, you will be able to vote for it. It will be moved onto the Contest page when it has enough votes. You will also see a link to add a new app if the app you are looking for is not in our catalog.
Note that we are currently only offering the contest for PHP-based applications. In the near future, we will be providing support for Python, Rails and Java-based applications as well. To be considered, the application needs to be available under a suitable license such as the GPL or the Apache license. We encourage community-oriented open source projects to participate. If you are a commercial open source company we encourage to contact us directly if you want us to package your software. Any attempt to game the system or manipulate the polls (i.e. writing a bot) will result in disqualification.
Which app will be next to join the BitNami library? That is up to you!
