Subject RE: [discuss][www][wiki] Native-lang sites was Web, WIki, and Participation

Sorry, I meant discussion at the wiki itself.  It is weird to discuss a wiki from a list, yes?
 Especially a community wiki.  Any preferences about that?  I want to splice in more information
and detail, but not trample on anything or just be off in a crevasse somewhere.

Also, what is your preference for introduction of discussion items in the wiki pages.  We
don't have a discussion tab, so something else is needed.  Thoughts?

Hi...I'm just getting to this now.

The recommendations regarding the web sites were mine alone.  I guess my feeling was since
pretty much ALL development is being handled by one list here currently, it makes sense to
me to combine areas that I think are code development related and hence the recommendations
I made. This being said, I think at the very least, the current project heads involved in
the various "development" areas like api, appliation framework, database -- really anything
designated as "core" (thanks to Marcus for this) -- should be contacted to see what they think,
or rather how they might to combine what's on these sites. Right now, if you go to the current
OOo wiki,

you'll see the development "teams" listed.

There may be some legacy info some of these folks want to keep from the web sites, but I couldn't
really speak to that.

Maybe the best way would be just to just start a thread with the subject heading

[DISCUSS] Simplifying the new Apache OOo web site  according to "category" function

or something like that, pointing folks to

and see what anyone has to say.

	Kay's page is not the only one that discusses the subdomains/projects of
These are variations.
	Here are the "synonym" domains to There are some decisions to be made about
what should be kept.
	Feel free to either edit or comment on any of these wiki pages, many have already.
	I think we are getting closer to be able to propose a coherent migration plan.

 There are clearly cross-over points where the user side provides a gateway to the developer
side, as it were.  My question: I don't know how your categories map to that restructuring.
 Are they meant to, or not?
