== Agenda for meeting 2011-02-15 ==
 * Template and README for other projects to pull from
 * Layout issues
   * RTL(right to left writing) problem in the design
   * Planet doesn't work well with min font size settings, feedlist overlaps entry texts (acessibility bug for visual handicaped people)
   * Language switch improvement
   * http://www.debian.org/misc/awards got a bit ugly (maybe due to usage of tables)
   * BRs
     
   ''On www.d.o'':
       * DebianBug:612138 '''i''', (Old translation warning hides text in the new style)
       * DebianBug:612118 '''n''', "/distrib/ should link to multi-arch image rather than separate 32-bit and 64-bit images"
       * DebianBug:612120 '''n''', "/releases/squeeze kfreebsd-amd64 should link to /ports/kfreebsd-gnu" [needed a 301 or a 200: symoon already on it, he said he want to discuss with DSA about the best way to fix]
       * DebianBug:612152 '''n''', "main page in russian: wrong word wrapping" [I've checked when reported and now again: it seems that the utf-8 conversion has fixed it. maybe we can ask l10n-russian to further check - for other pages]
       * DebianBug:612442 '''n''', "limit maximum width of text"
       * DebianBug:612208 '''m''', "review of the new website style": some minor issues/suggestions (IMVHO needs to be considered: at least the gradient thing and the alignment one)
       * DebianBug:612244 '''m''', "Home banner kerning wonky"
       * DebianBug:612577 '''m''', "history/navigation bar always lowercase" [symoon on it, but I haven't understand if it is resolved or not :)] (IMO needs to be cloned into wiki.d.o: is an issue for wiki but not for www.d.o)
       * DebianBug:612447 '''w''', "Home button and menu line doesn't look good with line break on small windows"
       * DebianBug:612116 '''w''', "/CD/ should now redirect to the new /distrib/"

 * Skip Quicknav link (not displayed cause of .hidecss (line 651) ) is dangling http://lists.debian.org/debian-www/2011/02/msg00059.html
 * Proposed 13px as absolute minimum font-size http://lists.debian.org/debian-www/2011/02/msg00076.html
* "Text columns should not be to wide. If they are, the eye looses 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. http://www.elmastudio.de/webdesign/typo-tipps-fuer-webdesigner-fliesstexte-gestalten http://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. http://lists.debian.org/debian-www/2011/02/msg00076.html
 * again, for 60-80 characters tw column another user http://lists.debian.org/debian-www/2011/02/msg00079.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 http://lists.debian.org/debian-www/2011/02/msg00085.html
 * there are not cross link from www.d.o to wiki.d.o and back http://lists.debian.org/debian-www/2011/02/msg00085.html
 * "Report it" button lead to a "thank you" page http://lists.debian.org/debian-www/2011/02/msg00089.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. http://lists.debian.org/debian-www/2011/02/msg00091.html
 * "Report it" button only lead to a "thank you" page http://lists.debian.org/debian-www/2011/02/msg00091.html
 * again about "Report it" button http://lists.debian.org/debian-www/2011/02/msg00291.html

About new layout

Feedback

Via Mailing 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) (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
  • 612444

Lists

Reviving site's areas

  • improve /intro/help section reorganizing contents on how to contribute per-profile (see 608400)

  • review and update doc/books entries

  • set a specific road map for /doc/ area:

  • 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 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?
