Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-1066) http://lucene.apache.org/hadoop/ front page is not user-friendly
Date Wed, 01 Aug 2007 17:45:53 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-1066?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12517027
] 

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

> the "News" link in the left hand menu does not jump down to the News section as it should

I just fixed that.  Thanks for noticing!

> seems like it would have been best to commit the patch verbatim and submit a second patch?

I probably should have posted my version of the patch before committing it, to get feedback.
 Sorry.

The goal of my changes was primarily to make it so that we're not replicating a lot of information
that's kept more accurately elsewhere, like the list of current versions and the list of current
release notes.  So I removed that table and added a link to Jira.  Now, when we make a release,
we don't need to update the documentation.

> 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.
