Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-1066) http://lucene.apache.org/hadoop/ front page is not user-friendly
Date Tue, 17 Apr 2007 16:37:15 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-1066?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12489455
] 

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

I think "learn about" link should point to a documentation overview page, not just to the
top-level wiki.  This should include the FAQ, the javadocs and the wiki.  The wiki alone should
not the authoritative documentation, should it?

Should "news" be under "releases" on the same page, or should these be separate pages?

The "install and configure" link should point to:

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

> 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.
