Subject [wiki] Proposed changes
Date Wed, 25 Jan 2006 02:36:20 GMT
I'm proposing to move some content around on the Commons wiki.

Motivating factors are:

 * Discourage amorphous growth on one or two pages
 * Distribute content over already existing pages (some of which are
mostly abandoned)
 * Reduce the number of orphaned pages, aim for better wiki navigation

(... over time, not that I expect any of my changes to be revolutionary ;-)

If you don't like one or more of the changes below, reply with a -1
underneath the change. I will make all changes that do *not* receive a
-1 in a few days (Friday at the earliest).

1) Move articles and third party resources to this orphaned page:

2) Create a DeveloperDocumentation page and move the related links
from the FrontPage to that one.

3) Create a "menu/navigation bar" on the top (currently it has three
entries). More entries will wrap in your browser, depending on your

4) Lose the description for the links on top of the page, they should
do OK without it as well, and add them to (3). For example:
"GettingInvolved has information for people interested in helping out
with commons development."
will just become a "GettingInvolved" link in the nav bar.

5) Add a FrequentlyAskedQuestions page for Commons as a whole (for
generic questions such as which why does my "maven site" fail)


Can we post your Javapolis pdf on the wiki? I remember someone suggesting it.
