It might be a good idea to look for several persons, not just for one.
The GNOME web is rather large. For example, you can't expect somebody
maintaining www.gnome.org to take care about live.gnome.org, too. This
is simply too much work for a single volunteer.
To be precise: this is about www.gnome.org.
I've tried to improve the content of www.gnome.org in the past few
months as best as I can and time permits. I think I'd like to continue
There are three aspects to the site - the content, its organisation,
and the look. One person (or a small group of people) can collaborate on
the site, and keep some kind of conceptual integrity to the whole lot,
and I hope can avoid falling into the trap of spending too much time on
the look, or on the actual content without considering the navigation.
Quim asked some great questions on accessibility of content a few months
ago, which might be worth rereading.
Are you looking for a maintainer of library.gnome.org,
You should also look for maintainer of projects.gnome.org.
Maintaining p.g.o should be easy
Another question is foundation.gnome.org
Separate questions. I'm personally not clear on what lgo wants to be. I
know Federico is interested in it, but this seems like a jfdi
situation... a decent skeleton/mock-up of a library.gnome.org would
probably be welcome. pgo has a maintainer already. What is
projects.gnome.org? foundation.gnome.org would use a maintainer - the
position is up for grabs.
Making a long text short: IMO, we should try to split our webpages into
maintainable pieces, and find a maintainer for each of them.
Repeating my initial precision - we're talking about www.gnome.org, the
main public face of GNOME. It needs a lot of work - mostly in the
navigation, but also in the look and the content. It urgently needs a
new front page design (although the most recent one is better than the
old one). People have been talking for years about having it be CMS
managed - well, the door is open.
