Subject Re: [VOTE] Migrating XML Graphics Project to ASF-CMS from Apache Forrest
Date Sun, 11 Nov 2012 21:20:47 GMT
Thanks for checking and for the input Jörg!

I thought we'd agreed to start the process to 'go live' with the new XML
Apache Graphics ASF-CMS based web site on 11/7. The consensus was that
anything that needed changing could be addressed post-DNS switch.

However, immediately before asking for infra@ to make the DNS change, I
realized there wasn't a formal [VOTE] so this is intended to be the Formal
[VOTE] to make the DNS switch.

Please see comments inline...

Dah! Those images are indicated as <figure src=...></figure> in the xdoc
source instead of an <img src=... />. I've corrected it... I also noticed
that somehow a bunch of images hadn't been brought over from the old branch
to the new.

I've fixed this throughout the XML Graphics site (I'd already done it for
Batik & XML Graphics and thought I'd done FOP as well).

Looks like there's extra margin-left on <p> elements, and whole *most*
stuff is in a <p> element, not everything is... I'll have to think about
how best to resolve that.

I played a little with it, but I'll (we'll?) likely need to spend more time
on this to get it just right.

I don't see this as a SHOWSTOPPER to switching DNS.

There are certainly things to be done to improve the flow of test.

When I ran the scripts to resolve HEADING & SUBHEADING issues, I
implemented the capability to add a Table of Contents to each page
programmatically. But since we discussed using Bootstrap, I was waiting to
implement the ToC, as Bootstrap might have a better method.

I don't see this as a SHOWSTOPPER to switching DNS.

As mentioned above, this [VOTE] is about going LIVE with the new,
ASF-CMS-based XML Graphics Project site immediately.

I don't see this as a SHOWSTOPPER, as it can be resolved at any time.

Thanks for double-checking...
