How to promote an open-source project?
One of my hobby projects currently is about to reach a stage i would call 'public beta' where i would like to see real user feedback.
I've been 'dogfooding' it, i think it scratches an itch, i am currently working on improving the documentation to provide an introduction, it is publicly available in full via SCV (bitbucket) etc.
But, all that will not get users, as far as i can tell, but only keep users from leaving.
Is there any common way of intruducing new projects to the community?
