I'll do it, hardcore (x)HTML style. I love graphic design and web site
I'm a bit short on time, but I'm better at that and marketing than I am
at psycho-nuts C++, and I can easily make time . If you guys can do
the code, I can do the web site.
If project developers from each of the 2 or 3 "foremost" projects as
suggested to me by someone who will remain unnamed so I don't cause
problems (AbiWord, Gnumeric, and Gnome-DB) please send me a copy of your
project's logo or icon image. Scalable vector graphics preferred,
otherwise the largest you have will do. I'll use them to create a bit
of a branding portal for GNOME Office.
(the other projects can also send in their images, I can use them in
other ways in the layout and such.)
Also, if it's not too much of a burden, it might not be a bad idea to
release a "version" of GNOME Office, so that there's a one-download
solution going against the two main components of OO.o. Just something
to stew around in your craniums.
Anyone who wants more information, wants to help, whatever, can
contact me. I sometimes hang out in #abiword when I can, as RyanPavlik,
or just Ryan, if I feel lazy.
(PS. Please relay this, someone, to the GO list, as I can't send it
there myself. Yet.)
(PPS. I tried to send this two nights ago (mail server all floopy), so
I've got dibs! ;)@Nelson. If you still want to do a Wiki, that would be
good, but I think the main page should be a regular style page. We
could cooperate and coordinate!)
I realize this is now a little bit dated, due to the fact my mail server
sucks. However, most of it should make sense.
