support.gnome.org

This page is a draft being discussed at marketing-list

This 2.18 goal is missing a coordinator

Summary

We need to address the support related use cases from wgo to their appropriate destinations. wgo itself is not dealing with support, a "Support" option is offered in the General navigation bar. We need to decide whether we keep gnomesupport.org, we move it to support.gnome.org or we make something in between (a s.g.o pointing to the relevant support sources).

In any case the subsite used should adopt the use cases, which means that even taking gnomesupport.org at least its main page should incorporate improvements to satisify the use cases. The support sources listed at http://www.gnome.org/support/ need to be taken also in account. Another element to consider is library.gnome.org, which is planned to have the documentation for users.

This goal depends on... (((links to other goals /documentation)))
