+1 to what Julee has.

Also, the API reference pages<http://docs.webplatform.org/wiki/apis> are in good shape:

·       Canvas

·       Geolocation

·       IndexedDB

·       And others in this node

Though we need to work on our cadence, I think our blog posts are good, too.

HTH,
Eliot

Hi, Jen!

Here are my answers.

Stable content:

  *   CSS properties we went over are in google docs.[1]
  *   Editing guide rather stable.[2]
  *   Doc sprint in a box.[3]
  *   And get Doug’s list because he thinks there’s more!
Yes, we use project.webplatform.org.

You can view the most popular pages in Piwik. Renoir must have given you an account.

The original request was for some sort of rolling notification, such as “a list of upcoming events and recent blog posts that automatically change,” as you mention, below. The block in implementing a new home page design in the past was the lack of resources giving it attention.

I do want to look at the data — what's the link?

But also, I want to know what people think, "subjectively". Yup.

Hi Jen.

Rather than guessing, I believe we have data for who’s using which pages. Or are you asking which pages we subjectively think are most useful?

Thanks,

Eliot

Hi all,

Let’s talk about WPD website content (& therefore homepage revision).



What is the already-existing, useful content that’s on the WPD site right now? And by content, I mean anything — stuff on how to contribute, updates and changing content, as well as the docs themselves. It's a chore to list it all... but in a quick answer, what comes to mind if you guess: what content do people use the most?



Are people actively using the project management system at http://project.webplatform.org?




Where is most of the activity happening? On the mailing list? It seems there are many channels to have a conversation (IRC, listserv, wiki pages, PM forum posts), but many of those are pretty quiet. Is this right (or am I missing something)?



It would make sense for the homepage to have a list of upcoming events and recent blog posts that automatically change (not that have to be manually created/updated separately). Is this possible with the current technology stack? It seems tricky with everything in separate systems (WordPress for blogposts, events announced in generic blogposts not as some kind of data-structured event post, Mediawiki for docs, everything on separate subdomains, etc). Thoughts? Is this what blocked implementing a new home page design in the past?





Jen
