What is the target?

  • Rethink focus of as a whole: Are Tablets for coders or regular users? (I think the latter.) - TimSamoff
IMHO open collaboration is the lowest barriers and passive users aka consumers will be much happier with a pure consumer site. See 2010_Agenda#The_one_site_for_end_users (might move to an own page soon).--qgil 20:28, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

Improving the current web structure

What is wrong in the current website structure?

  • Navigation is a little hard to...navigate.
    • Certain user-centered items should be prevalent and easy to use (e.g., Downloads, News, Documentation).
    • A lot of the subnav stuff (Roadmap, Lists, Bugzilla, SDK, IRC, etc.) could be removed from the main page and placed in a Developer-centric page.
  • As discussed here, should the main page be more of an aggregated community-driven content portal?

What works about the current web structure?

List positive remarks here:

  • Main page News summaries are good.
  • The idea of posting "The Pearl" is good. Should it just be called " Download Picks" (or something)?

Proposals to turn bad in good and create a good structure

Improving the current web content

What is wrong in the current content?

  • Too much text alone. This is ok in developer documentation and dense stuff, but for the rest...--qgil 20:35, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

Proposals to turn bad in good and create good content.

  • Snappy texts combined with images and graphics (screenshots, images, pictures...) and video, lots of videos and screencasts. Maemo is beautiful and its community generates a lot of visual stuff.--qgil 20:35, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

Improving the current layout

Discussed at Talk:Task:Maemo.org_facelift.

A whole wiki?

  • Why not wikify the entire site? Midgard is great software, but going completely wiki would speak well of "openness." - timsamoff
"The entire site" is technically a nightmare. If you mean the static content we can discuss about more areas to be moved to this wiki, well integrated. But Downloads or News rely totally on Midgard and you don't want to wikify them, leave alone bugzilla or garage.  :) What specifically have you in mind?--qgil 20:30, 1 August 2008 (UTC)
