Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-1066) http://lucene.apache.org/hadoop/ front page is not user-friendly

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

Good feedback, thanks. If the intro text and the architectural diagram work, that's great.
They're aimed at a new visitor who might ask "What is this and what makes it good?"

Adding a Download page: I completely agree. I put a link (but called Releases) in the navigation
column on the left. That might not have shown up until I got the right CSS loaded. If you
look at it again, remember that it just shows structure; I'm assuming we'll have the look
and feel of the Forrest template.

I can also beef up the Issue Tracking page.

I'm working on a trajectory for improving the site based on audience and some usability concepts.
This is just the first step, but it's the front page so it's pretty visible.

> 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.
