Re: GNOME Web Content: Open tasks

Claus, thanks again for putting this together.  I have some time reserved this week to dive back into this.

The links to the pages that need review are at the bottom of this page:

Where's the draft that we should review?

Short status report:  I think, I imported most of the available
information from old drafts and (wgo) by now. Now we'd
need to fill the gaps and fix wrong or misleading pieces. We may also
need to decide about a few issues.

Overall, I'm still not happy about the content structure. The 'About'
pages most likely to be read by people new to GNOME but they are boring
and lame. For example, 'Why GNOME' is better as a beginning for newbies,
in my opinion. Note that it repeats much of the information in 'About
GNOME'. I still believe, we should make 'About GNOME' the basic sales
pitch and drop the whole 'Products' section. However, that's just a side

What needs to be done:

1.) Missing First Drafts:

 * "Front page" (not in the wiki yet)
 * "Products"
 * "Products > Submit Your Product"
 * "Contact > Foundation"

I'm not really sure why we would need the last one. It's on the
foundation site, anyway. However. Who's going to write one of them?

I also skip importing the 'friends of gnome' pages.

2.) Missing paragraphs

These are 'flagged' with //TODO. Who's willing to pick one page and fix

3.) URL structure

Right now, urls are sorted by the content. Thus, we
have /community/friends/, for example, instead of /friends/. We still
have time to change that, I believe. We will need redirects, anyway, but
we may want to keep them as simple as possible.

Someone needs to talk to webhackers and figure out what's the best
option here.

3.) Content review

Please read the pages. If you think, something important is missing,
add //TODO and describe what you think should be changed. Or better yet:
Simply write it.

That's it, I think.

Note that according to the GNOME web schedule, the sections 'About' and
'Contact' are expected to be finished July 15th. That's just two weeks
and we still need to proof-read.
