Hi all,

Letís talk about WPD website content (& therefore homepage revision).

What is the already-existing, useful content thatís on the WPD site right
now? And by content, I mean anything ó 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

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?
