Subject [jira] [Created] (COMDEV-187) Allura - better root page and initial impressions

-------------------------------------

             Summary: Allura - better root page and initial impressions
                 Key: COMDEV-187
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COMDEV-187
             Project: Community Development
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: GSoC/Mentoring ideas
            Reporter: Dave Brondsema


In a new Allura installation, the landing page is not very useful.  It shows a defunct category
system on the left menu and the body of the page is just a list of the "neighborhoods" (which
you can browse into to find projects).  This is not great initial impression.

The categories should be removed, and the main page content should be customizable.  Some
design research and brainstorming will be necessary to determine what it should be.  Maybe
raw HTML that site admins can set, maybe a standard allura wiki page.  Maybe an option to
redirect to a "main" project within the site.  Maybe the root is its own special project,
allowing admins to choose between a wiki page, forum, tracker, etc - plus let them have other
tools at the top level.

This probably will not take the full GSoC time and the student should plan on other improvements
to make the Allura site easier for people to use and customize.  (header/footer customizations
maybe?)
