Subject new site!
Date Wed, 07 Jul 2004 09:56:53 GMT
Hi guys!

Congrats on the new site. The front page certainly is shiny with all the 
cool icons 'n stoof!

What I don't like so much is that you completely, utterly, totally, 
broke all "backward compatibility". A golden rule of the web is to 
*never* *break* *an* *url*. Imagine the dozens of releases and projects 
out there which refer to http://avalon.apache.org/framework/api as a 
source for external javadocs, for example.

Could you /please/ either put the old content back (just don't link to 
it) or set up appropriate redirects?

Oh, another thing I'd recommend is either providing more information on 
the front page about what avalon does, or having a big fat link labelled 
something like "About". Imagine you're someone who hasn't got a clue 
what "complete development platform for component and container 
programming utilizing key design patterns such as Inversion of Control 
and Separation of Concerns" means. It'd be nice if they could find out 
easily, right? (most apache websites suffer badly from the "random John 
Doe alienation" factor; avalon used to be reasonably good at avoiding it...)
