Subject RE: [DISCUSS][WIKI] Do we need a top-level Releases page?
Date Wed, 13 Feb 2013 23:24:08 GMT

I added those in.  IMHO, our wiki should just "export" content and then it gets "styled" up
and be put on  

Take a look at cxf landing page vs the wiki.  Their landing page is nothing more than dressed
up wiki.

Landing page:


This has a few benefits:
- Reduces the things we have to keep track of to a minimum.
- Familiar platform for people who want to write things targeted to the end user/cloud operator.
- End user/cloud operator has a natural way to dig deeper. 

Our collaborations should happen on the mailing list but once a consensus is achieved someone
should write something on the wiki.  This is similar to how we're doing the FSes currently.

David has gotten admin privilege to allow us to customize the html export of our wiki.  I
haven't had any time to look at it though (partly because I can only tinker with it through
David since I have no such karma so it's slow for me to get started.)
