Subject xml.apache.org website
Date Thu, 25 Oct 2001 18:39:22 GMT
I'd like to bring up the topic of the website again.

The last we discussed this (in July) people seemed to be interested in
docs / site into DocBook or simplified DocBook.    Berin Loritsch had some
styles for DocBook checked into Avalon.

Is this still what people think we should do?  If so, I plan to start
converting the X2 docs to
docbook and using this as a trial run for the rest of the site.   Assuming
that this is successful,
I'm willing to help this happen for all the other projects.

I'd also like to see us change the style for the website and get rid of all
the images in the nav
bars, etc.    I'm willing to take a crack at it, but it *will* be ugly.   If
someone more artistically
inclined wants to help, that'd be great.

Lastly, we have too many copies of the website docs.   Each project has a
copy of the docs
in its own cvs, and then there's the copy in XML site -- that's one copy too
many.   I'd like to
set things up so that the build for xml-site checks out the doc directories
for each project and
then builds the website.  If we can do that then maybe we could even have
the website updated
semi-automatically.  In order for this to happen, it would be nice if all
the projects used the same
directory hierarchy.   See http://jakarta.apache.org/site/dirlayout.html for
a good starting point.
I'm going to start a second thread for the dirlayout stuff.
