Current Wgo Structure

The following is a quick picture of the current www.gnome.org directory layout. I hope to update this soon with more accurate and detailed information (such as including files).

Analysis

JoachimNoreiko -- I'm running through the current directories to see what there is, and quickly making notes below.

  • www.gnome.org/ - Should have a main news item, the same as it does now. But some items need an expiry date, and there should be a fallback item in the system for when this is reached. For example, at time of writing our main page has a graphic that says 'Apply by 1 July 2006', which is more than a month ago. A suitable fallback might be something general about the current version of GNOME: '2.14 -- now with searching all over!' or whatever.
  • about - Needs an overhaul. It all sounds great, but as an ordinary user I'd ask: what's a 'desktop environment', and what actually IS GNOME? Stop telling me it's usable, free, international etc, which is all lovely, and tell me what it actually does for me.
  • bounties - move to developer or wherever. Too technical for wgo.
  • community - some of this should go under "do more with GNOME" (art, software, etc) and some under support.
  • contact - too vague. some of this is support -- so it should go on the support page! people look for a page called contact, but this should pass the reader on to support, join, or foundation.
  • faqs - dead links! Any FAQs should be in library.g.o anyway
  • fonts - no idea what this is! Looks like a document that was just dumped here.
  • friends - move to foundation.g.o?
  • i18n - ugly URL. Its good to have a page showing off all the languages GNOME speaks, but this should probably go within the /start/ set along with release notes. Details on contributing to translation should go on developer.g.o
  • images -- 403, likewise its child
  • img - images for the site, but could use clearing up
  • include - ?
  • learn - this will be replaced by library.g.o
  • press
  • projects - I'm unsure about these. What are they for? Who are they for? Some, eg agnubis, are clearly abandoned. Others, such as gedit, are well-maintained. But the whole concept is peculiar because any /projects subsite will be an orthogonal slice through the rest of gnome: you have a page of features and screenshots (aimed at all users, though everyday users already have gedit on their distro anyway), and then pages for developers such as contacts, ftp, roadmap, and so on. I sort of like the homely feel of a micro-site like gedit, but I think it's too much too expect all gnome-hosted projects to maintain a solid web presence as well as an application. These are potential shop windows for developers to join particular projects, and they should stay focussed on that -- drop any targetting to the average user.
  • resources -- move and merge to /support/
  • roadmap - ancient. remove completely. Should be on the wiki or on the reborn dev.g.o
  • softwaremap - ancient.
  • start - Is this useful? It's a mishmash of 'About' and links to release notes, and links to distros. I don't understand why there is /start/2.14/ and also /start/ -- if we're keeping old versions of this page then /start/ should be an alias to the most recent version. That way, another site can link to /start/screenshots and be assured of never going to a page about an old version. And screenshots of current/old versions should be on wgo - currently, there is a jump to art.gnome.org's screenshots category. The change of site is confusing and the quality of the shots is not consistent.
    • start/stable -- There's a 'Download' link at the moment in the top bar, but it goes to this -- a page with no download links!

* support -- once updated this is good
