 * check the vendors list: english/CD/vendors/testvendors.pl seems a script to do this job (thanks Tolimar for this hint!) === About new layout ===
Line 22: Line 16:
 * taffit suggested to contact /users/ to check if they still use Debian
 * improve /intro/help section reorganizing contents on how to contribute per-profile (see DebianBug:608400)
 * convert website to UTF-8 (see DebianBug:567781)
==== Feedback ====
Via '''Mailing list''':
 * "Text columns should not be too wide. If they are, the eye loses orientation and the text gets more unpleasant to read. I've found the following guidelines: 60-80 characters or 10-12 words (in english texts) or 30-35em. https://www.elmastudio.de/webdesign/typo-tipps-fuer-webdesigner-fliesstexte-gestalten https://lists.debian.org/debian-www/2011/02/msg00076.html
 * You could put the news and security advisors on the frontpage in a column on the right and thus making the main text narrower. https://lists.debian.org/debian-www/2011/02/msg00076.html
 * again, for 60-80 characters tw column another user https://lists.debian.org/debian-www/2011/02/msg00079.html
 * Proposed 13px as absolute minimum font-size https://lists.debian.org/debian-www/2011/02/msg00076.html
 * too small font-size for the #hometoc and also for Icons text on wiki start page (on 1600x900 laptop screen) while the normal text is ok https://lists.debian.org/debian-www/2011/02/msg00085.html
 * there are not cross link from www.d.o to wiki.d.o and back https://lists.debian.org/debian-www/2011/02/msg00085.html
 * behind the Debian logo on the left (of the header) the background's fade effect isn't the same and seems broken. It would be nicer with the same fade colours of the central headers. https://lists.debian.org/debian-www/2011/02/msg00091.html
 * too much scrolling: less information per page and more pages or maybe better navigation tools https://lists.debian.org/debian-www/2011/02/msg00202.html --> more TOCS menu automatically, similar to what taffit did for DPN ?
Line 26: Line 27:
/!\ Please note that '''this is not a wish list'''!   ==== www.d.o ====
 * Use Javascripts from get.debian.net to select/highlight the arch matching the visitor
 * make https://www.debian.org/CD/http-ftp/ more compact (like CD/vendors, need mirror_list.pl tweak, and sorting the user country first) (DebianBug:706324)
 * inter-sites links under the red button ? (symoon solution does work with CSS2 browsers, not IE7.. maybe not that much a problem ?)
 * which compatibility against web browsers are we looking for ? IE7 ? Default epiphany with small min font size?
 * there is a scaling issue on the front page when Iceweasel is set to "Zoom Text Only", the RSS buttons push the design so that a horizontal scroll bar appears. the issue appears to be that they are set to strictly 35px wide, instead of whatever size they need to be. turning off the width doesn't appear to have any adverse affects. I wonder if the line-height should be px too
==== Planet ====
 * red PLANET bit on planet.d.o/es needs to link back to the main page
 * planet.d.o/cgi-bin/search.cgi is completely unstyled
 * DebianBug:612444

==== Lists ====
 * on lists.d.o the "mailing lists" red thing is not a link to the top of the lists page.
 * https://lists.debian.org/archive-spam-removals/review/ broken

=== Reviving site's areas ===
 * improve '''/intro/help''' section reorganizing contents on how to contribute per-profile (see DebianBug:608400)
 * review and update '''doc/books''' entries
 * set a specific road map for '''/doc/''' area:
  * apply kallesdesign also for Dev ref, Installation Manual, release notes, Debian FAQ (see: https://lists.debian.org/debian-www/2011/02/msg00112.html)
  * split data and content in the ''/doc/'' area [madamezou] → (done for books.wml)
   * order language in translation's locale
  * apply content changes proposed by osamu (see https://lists.debian.org/debian-www/2011/02/msg00094.html)
 * get rid of '''/misc/'''
  * '''/misc/merchandise''' should go in '''/events/'''
  * '''/misc/children-distros''' should go in '''/derivatives'''
 * Merge the '''/CD/''' and '''/distrib/''' part of the website, following up on DebianBug:612116 or in a specific wiki page welcome
 * split data and content in '''/partners/''' section
 * Use an UDD-like database to produce '''/devel/people'''

=== Misc ===

 * get all apache logs to a central location and run statistics over it
 * website <-> wiki relation. Which data comes where?
