Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-1066) http://lucene.apache.org/hadoop/ front page is not user-friendly
Date Thu, 19 Apr 2007 22:33:15 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-1066?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12490188
] 

Connie Kleinjans commented on HADOOP-1066:
------------------------------------------

Learn About: I do like the idea of a documentation overview page with links to the authoritative
information. (I'd like to add more over time.) I'd also like to see us change the navigation
link to User Documentation to distinguish it from the Developer link. How does that sound?

News vs Releases: On other sites, the News page (if it exists) lists things like conference
announcements, who's giving a talk where, media attention, really big releases, calls to action.
Could we eliminate it until we have such announcements?

Install and configure: I'll update the link.

BTW, I don't have an easy way to mock up how the sections in the navigation panel (on the
left) open and close. It's a little counter intuitive that the titles don't lead to a page.
Not sure if that's locked in by Forrest or not.

> 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.
