+
 
+
Let me tell you where I intend to go from here, in order:
+
 
+
- I'm going to update the spins directory page (#3) to list the spins in
+
order of popularity by default, and also let users tab over to view the
+
spins in alpha order
+
 
+
- I'm going to add a content block to the spins directory page to
+
explain what a spin is and link out to other spin-related resources
+
(e.g. wiki page on how to roll your own)
+
 
+
- I'm going to use some of Toshio's suggestions for the get-fedora page
+
(#2) and play around with the balance between the DOWNLOAD NOW!!!!111
+
option and the 'other options' option. I'll probably make a few
+
iterations here and solicit your input.
+
 
+
- I'm going to create an updated mockup for the spins details pages
+
(10-13).
+
 
+
- I'm going to solicit feedback for all of these by posting stuff to
+
this list when it's done as well as making posts to Planet Fedora.
+
 
+
- By next Friday I am hoping to close out the feedback period so I can
+
crank out the rest of the work (which is hopefully less controversial)
+
so I can get the websites team a solid set of mockups by Sept. 20 for
+
the spins and by Sept. 27 for the FPO-related stuffs.
+
 
+
- F12 comes out and the new site design comes out. Hopefully you don't
+
all hate me at this point and we have a website that at least most if
+
not everyone can be proud of (if not at least unashamed of. :) )

[edit] What's happening now

We've completed the http://spins.fedoraproject.org and the http://get.fedoraproject.org redesigns; we are currently working on mockups for the new www.fedoraproject.org and fedoracommunity.org.

[edit] Introduction

This is a project to redesign http://get.fedoraproject.org and http://spins.fedoraproject.org that is being undertaken during the F12 release cycle by the Websites team with assistance from Design and Infrastructure.

[edit] Goals

Redesign the get.fedoraproject.org and spins.fedoraproject.org sites in a way that fits the requirements. We will determine metrics for improvement during the feedback-gathering phases, but in general, we want more Fedora contributors, and our strategy for this is getting more Fedora users.

The Board's goals in the Website redesign are[1]:

  • To make Fedora fresh, attractive, and inclusive for potential participants and contributors
  • To more effectively promote a single instance of Fedora that satisfies the computing needs of the average person
  • To provide an improved showcase opportunity for Fedora spins created by the community


See Website redesign 2009 requirements for get.fedoraproject.org and spins.fedoraproject.org design requirements.
