Re: Content Milestone - Mapping


Overall, I like the new proposal.  However, a fairly significant group
of people who use the GNOME website are developers who work on GNOME
or want to write a GNOME application.  Wouldn't it make sense to have
some more high-level or visible links to the most important developer
resources?  Perhaps a high-level page with links to things like API
documentation, release team information, GIT pointers, forums to get
help, information about how the community uses IRC, etc.  I'd think most
of this information is already on, but it seems the
website should point the direction for developers.


Thanks to everyone on the marketing list, but especially Stormy, Lucas and Claus for helping with this, and helping me bring it together.

The original pages to be included in the wgo revamp can be found here:

We have reviewed the current pages, and are making a recommendation to revamp these pages significantly. The following bullet points are our first draft of a new recommended site map. Items in parantheses ( ) are initially out of scope for 2.28, and will be in scope for 2.30. (Though if more writers volunteer, or if the community feels strongly about a certain page, it could be subject to change).

Please let me know your feedback and comments. I will be updating lgo tonight to reflect these changes.
