Proposed changes for GetGNULinux.org for Dec.1st
as you know we are working on running the Pootle translation interface to manage the GetGNULinux.org site, our deadline is December 1st.
I thought it would be a good opportunity to simplify/re-organise the site a little. The idea would be to re-name the "About" page into a "More" page.
Specifically (have a look at the site map to check):
- The "Where to go" page in the Switch to Linux section is deleted;
- The "About" page becomes "More" and inherits the content of the "where to go" page. So, mostly, a handful of well-chosen links.
The description of GLM in the About page would be simplified a lot and moved to the bottom. It would be less needed since we plan to include a link to GLM in the footer of the website.
- All the under-sections of the About page disappear:
*Legal information: to be replaced by a page on gnulinuxmatters.org which would be used for all our sites;
*Website FAQ: purely deleted and perhaps replaced by an FAQ on gnulinuxmatters.org later on (optional)
*Contact: replaced by a contact page on gnulinuxmatters.org (needed since we're swamped with spam anyway)
*Credits: same thing
*Site map: deleted (much less needed).
Generally this would make the site simpler and lighter. It's also much easier to integrate into Pootle and translate.
The rest of the site would remain strictly identical (of course it can always be improved but it's time expensive and we are working hard on more important things).
Does this sound sensible?
(regulars will recognize ideas they have proposed months ago here ;-) diffusing slowly).
