So a couple of weeks ago I mentioned the work robyduck and the Fedora websites team have been putting in on the new websites for Fedora, primarily, spins.fedoraproject.org and labs.fedoraproject.org. Here’s the handy little diagram I put together back then to explain:
This week, robyduck got the new site designs into staging, which means you can try out the new work-in-progress sites right now and provide us your helpful feedback, suggestions (and dare I suggest it) content contributions to make the sites even better. 🙂
Click below to visit the staging site:
You may notice as you peruse through the Fedora Labs staging site and the Fedora Spins staging site you’re going to see some bogus stuff. For example, the Robotics Suite page highlights Gimp and Inkscape as included applications. 🙂 This is because a lot of the content is filler content and we need help from the users of these spins and experts in the individual technologies of what we should be featuring and how we should be describing these spins.
So this is sort of a continuation of our earlier call for help, but this one is really mostly focused on content – we really need your help.
With the staging sites for spins.fedoraproject.org and labs.fedoraproject.org up and running, we are hoping this will make it easier for folks to understand where we are lacking content and could use some help figuring out what to say about each spin. It helps to see it all in context for every spin.
This is a good way to contribute to an open source project if you enjoy writing or documentation – we will handle all the details of getting the content into the pages, you would simply need to email us or blog comment (or whatever is easiest for you) the content you are contributing.
If you are interested in helping us out or even have a particular interest in one of the following spins that is in most need of help, can you get in touch with us and we’ll help you get started?
- Robotics Suite – needs list of featured applications with short descriptions.
- Security Lab – needs list of featured applications with short descriptions.
- Sugar on a Stick – needs list of featured applications with short descriptions.
We’d appreciate any help you can provide. Get in touch in the comments to this post!
