GNOME Website Plan for 2.28

GNOME.org Frontpage

We’re working hard to have a beta version of the GNOME website by September 21, GNOME 2.28 release. I’m trying to keep everyone very focused in a clear and concrete plan:

The May 27 milestone was a total success! So, what do we have now? The Content team (working with the Marketing team) has the initial plan for the content structure. The Design team has published the initial design proposal for the website. The CMS team has set an initial plan for the basic content, front page, translation and deployment. The Plone work is all being documented in our wiki.

The next milestone (June 15) is about consolidating the content structure, delivering the final design in an implementable form (HTML/CSS), setting up a test website in GNOME servers and having front page and basic content types implemented in our Plone instance. Paul is now working on mapping the content that was previously produced to make sure we reuse it as much as possible. Andreas and Vinicius want feedback on the proposed design and will be working on implementing the design in HTML/CSS during this milestone so that it can be easily applied in our Plone website.

New contributors are more than welcome! If you think you can help with content and design, please subscribe to marketing list. If you want to contribute to the Plone implementation, join the web mailing list. In all cases, please introduce yourself after you’re subscribed.
