Subject Confluence link on the welcome pages
Date Tue, 06 Dec 2005 14:59:16 GMT

When creating the Welcome Page with the new look & feel and the web 
console welcome portlet I included a link to the current confluence 
documentation.   This is the "Additional Documentation" link.  I added 
it because I was thinking that this documentation was too good to not 
have an easy way for the end user to access it and was curious to see if 
anybody would complain.

Given all of the debate about confluence and the possibility that the 
current confluence content may or may not be moving into a more official 
site, I guess I should remove these links.  Hopefully, whatever is 
decided will ensure that this documentation is readily available to the 
users for V1 (even if it requires one level of indirection).  So I'll go 
ahead and remove the links unless somebody really, really, thinks we 
should keep them.

BTW, if we do make a complete change from the wiki to confluence is 
there any possibility that we could keep the same URL?  The Welcome page 
has always included a link to the wiki and it would be great if this 
didn't become a dead link on the installed images.  It would probably be 
better if we removed all of the links on the welcome page and the web 
console welcome portlet and just point the user to the Geronimo home 
page.  This would allow us to keep things "up to date".  Should I go 
ahead and make this change too while updating the welcome page and the 
web console welcome portlet?
