Subject Site: some trivial changes and a proposal to add "getting involved" to the horizontal navigation bar
Date Sat, 08 Oct 2011 19:38:44 GMT
I made some small and trivial changes to the Jena website (without publishing it).
Feel free to change/reject any of them, if you do not agree with the changes.

The page which makes me more unsatisfied is the "Jena Roadmap" (*):
I believe it's important to give people a sense of direction.
The current page IMHO, perhaps, send the wrong message (i.e. no direction).

Maybe we could also add something related to the fact that we are still in
incubation and the goal is, obviously, get out of the Apache Incubator.
Hopefully, as soon as possible or in a reasonable timeframe: 1 year? 2 years?

 (*) As well as the ones with missing content!

The page I care the most for the future of the project and the community around
the project is the "Getting involved in Apache Jena":

I tried to make it more personal and progressively show a new potential
committer that it's not that hard to move from discussing on the jena-users|jena-dev
mailing list, to opening JIRA issues, checking out the source code, create and
submit a patch (and maybe, why not?, become a committer).

One thing that makes me unhappy is that there is not "getting involved" tab in
the horizontal navigation. I would like to add one, but I am aware we discussed
this already. However, I really feel strongly about this and I would like to give
to the "getting involved" page as much as visibility as some of the other sections

Can I commit this change?
