Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-6958) Clean up the Derby website
Date Sun, 10 Sep 2017 16:00:05 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-6958?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16160386#comment-16160386

Bryan Pendleton commented on DERBY-6958:

Thanks for the thorough catalog of items.

Even if we can't fully automate all these chores (or choose not to), if we just put the per-release
tasks into our release checklist we won't forget to do them with the next release. Automation
is better, of course, but we don't make releases that frequently so as long as the checklist
records the things that need doing, the release manager will know to do them.

> The Derby website is stale and needs to be cleaned up. Here is an initial list of things
I want to clean up:
> 1) The copyright year in the page footer is 2015. That should be 2017. Extra credit if
we can parameterize the footer so that the copyright year is automatically updated whenever
we refresh the website with a new release.
> 2) The document references in the FAQ (http://db.apache.org/derby/faq.html) are hard-coded.
I just updated them from 10.7 doc references to be 10.13 references. But we should parameterize
doc references across the Derby website so that, again, they are updated whenever we refresh
the website with a new release.
> 3) I removed dead links in some of the top-level pages along with stale information.
We need to make a systematic pass through the whole website. Extra credit if we can automate
the location of dead links so that we can clean up the website when we publish releases.
> 4) We need to remove material which addresses old issues which no-one cares about any
> 5) Extra credit if we can cleanup the wiki similarly.
