Subject Site & Documentation ideas
Date Fri, 08 Oct 2010 09:10:27 GMT
  A few of the committers have been having a conversation off-list about 
the site documentation.  I'm just copying some of those points here so 
that they are public, and for others to come in if they have ideas or 

*/Original point that was made:/

It's damn hard to find actual documentation from It isn't trivial to click
Component ->  Application Library just to find some concrete docs. I
think that the site map should be reviewed.

/*Dan's thoughts:

All this stuff is work-in-progress... Rob and I are aware that this
stuff needs to be very easily accessible.

If you have any firm ideas, that'd be great; pop them onto the Isis wiki.  I've
copied up some correspondence on isis-dev between me and
Dave there, at

/*Rob's thoughts:*/

This stuff is so important. Dan and I have been talking about it for a
while now and its one of the main thing that we need to concentrate on
for the move to Apache. If you do something, or try to figure something
out, then make a note of it so we can add it to the documentation.  Dan
and I will structure and make the documentation build and then we need
to make it easily accessible.

I know I'm just repeating what Dan has said, but I want you to know that
we recognise that and are committing ourselves to working on it.

/*Dave's thoughts:*/

Hey Everyone,

I was looking at some of the other Apache projects and I thought the Apache Cocoon
site had a pretty good layout that made it easy to get started and worked it's way up
to contributing to the project.  On the Cocoon site, I find it easy for both the beginner
and the advanced developer to find the information they need within a few clicks
and the documentation and reference material are easy to find.

Two other sites that I found to be organized well are the Apache Struts and Apache Wicket
I think we can take advantage of some of the styles of these sites and make it easy
for all levels of developers to use the site effectively and efficiently.
