Subject [jira] [Commented] (IMAGING-103) Update Commons Imaging web page to represent current state of project
Date Mon, 29 Apr 2013 18:32:19 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IMAGING-103?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13644735#comment-13644735

Claudio Nieder commented on IMAGING-103:
----------------------------------------

Also I notice several links are dead. E.g. while the download link in the left sidebar points
to the working page http://commons.apache.org/proper/commons-imaging/download_sanselan.cgi
the "Download latest release" link on the page itself points to the non-existing location
http://commons.apache.org/sanselan/download_sanselan.cgi

The same is true for the Javadoc and the "Sanselan class" link on this page. Though the Javadoc
link in the sidebar is broken too.

Furthermore the project status page http://commons.apache.org/proper/commons-imaging/history.html
does not have any information on versions newer than 0.90.

The justification page http://commons.apache.org/proper/commons-imaging/justification.html
has a broken link to the "Apache Software License" and to libungif while the page mentioned
on the top which is supposed to list other imaging libraries now just tells user to go back
to Apache.

On the References page http://commons.apache.org/proper/commons-imaging/references.html the
first and fourth link are dead.

On the Sample Images page http://commons.apache.org/proper/commons-imaging/sampleimages.html
the RAWpository link points to a page which I wonder if it is the intended one.

> I recommend that the project update the Commons Imaging web page to better represent
the project.  I believe that currently it might discourage developers who would otherwise
be interested in using Commons Imaging.
> Not only does the current text still refer to "Sanselan" but it also gives the impression
that the code base hasn't been updated since 2009.   Also, I would like to see the phrase
"It's slow, consequently, but perfectly portable" removed since the project has made considerable
improvements in performance over the last couple of years.
> Finally, I'd like to see some of the links to the Issue Tracker and so forth updated
to point at the right place.
