www.gnome.org - Get Started
The new structure for the www.gnome.org site (defined in the completed GnomeWeb/NewWgoStructure goal) calls for several subsections. 'Get Started' is one of them.
The earlier goal defines the following structure:
Get Started - Try GNOME: desktop, applications, development platform.
- OSs and distros
- Intro for developers
Intro for sysadmins/deployments.
- Learn more
The basic task is to plan and write this section of the www.gnome.org site.
- Plan the content of the pages in more detail, starting from the structure defined in the previous goal.
- Research the information needed
- Which Distros do we want to feature? Contact them, get information about them.
- What can we offer Windows and Mac users? Who in GNOME knows this?
- Do we even have a LiveCD team? Who are they? Is it up to date? Where can it be downloaded?
- What do we want for developers? What's been our material on this so far? Ask developers what they want.
- What do we want for sysadmins/deployments? What's been our material on this so far? Ask sysadmins/deployments what they want.
