What's happening now
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.
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:
- 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
