Subject [Help Wanted] Graphics and other help for new Lucene/Solr website
Date Wed, 10 Aug 2011 14:08:54 GMT

We are in the process of putting up a new Lucene/Solr/PyLucene/OpenRelevance website.  You
can see a preview at  It is more or less a look
and feel copy of Mahout and Open For Biz websites.  This new site, IMO, both looks better
than the old one and will be a lot easier for us committers to maintain/update and for others
to contribute to.

So, how can you help?  

0.  All of the code is at  Check it out
the usual way using SVN.  If you want to build locally, see
and the links to the ASF CMS guide.

1. If you have any graphic design skills:
	- I'd love to have some "mantle/slide" images along the lines of
 These are used in the slideshow at the top of the Lucene, Core and Solr pages and should
be interesting, inviting, etc. and should give people warm fuzzy feelings about all of our
software and the great community we have.  (Think Marketing!)
	- Help us coordinate the color selection on the various pages, especially in the slides and
especially on the Solr page, as I'm not sure I like the green and black background contrasted
with the orange of the Solr logo.

2. In a few more days or maybe a week or so, patches to fix content errors, etc. will be welcome.
 For now, we are still porting things, so I don't want to duplicate effort.

3. New, useful documentation is also, of course, always welcome.

4. Test with your favorite browser.  In particular, I don't have IE handy.  I've checked the
site in Chrome, Firefox and Safari.

If you come up w/  images (I won't guarantee they will be accepted, but I am appreciative
of the help) or other style fixes, etc., please submit all content/patches to
and please make sure to check the donation box when attaching the file.
