Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-1066) http://lucene.apache.org/hadoop/ front page is not user-friendly
Date Wed, 11 Apr 2007 18:14:32 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-1066?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12488133
] 

Doug Cutting commented on HADOOP-1066:
--------------------------------------

This looks good to me.  It would be better if a few more of the links in the "Getting Started"
and "Getting Involved" section pointed to pages in the website, rather than directly to the
wiki or to Jira.  This will make the documentation (which is included in releases) more standalone.

In particular:

We might either add an "install and configure" page to the site, or point to the front page
of the javadoc, which contains such information:

http://lucene.apache.org/hadoop/api/overview-summary.html#overview_description

We should add a "download" page.

The "feedback" link should not point to jira, but rather to http://lucene.apache.org/hadoop/issue_tracking.html.
 That page should also probably include advice about first searching the mail archives, asking
questions on the user list, and searching the bug database before filing a new issue.

> One of our tech writers has been looking at the state of Hadoop documentation, and suggests
reworking the Hadoop front page to be more than just a release page (as it seems to be now).
> Especially in comparison with other other apache project pages, ours is uninviting to
users unfamiliar with the premise of the project. She's suggesting updating the page to include
more meta-information about the site, in addition to most of the links and news items currently
on the page.
