Here we define the vision and scope of www.gnome.org. The strategy and implementation derives from the requirements listed below.
- an introduction to the GNOME project: software (desktop + applications), development platform and community
- an overview of what GNOME can do for users, developers and large deployments
- an overview of how to get involved in the GNOME project
- a gateway to the relevant GNOME subsites
With www.gnome.org users should be able to:
- find out how they can try GNOME
- find where they can get extras for their GNOME system: software, artwork...
- do all the above in several supported languages
- Explain clearly what is GNOME, why you want to have it and be part of it
- Be the primary resource of information and materials about the GNOME project
- Offer a simple interface with the GNOME community for feedback and support
- Provide communication channels and tools to all the profiles involved in the GNOME community
- Satisfy current ISDs, public sector and hobbyists using GNOME
- Attract new users and developers, primarly from the targets mentioned above
- Provide tools and materials to learn and increase the involvement of people in the GNOME project
- Assist the organization of successful meetings and events.
- Be as multilingual as the GNOME software and community
