 * "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

 * 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 ?

 * some of the sponsor_img.jpg (the ANU one for eg) are a different size and aspect ratio and www.d.o stretches those out due to the width= height= attributes. 150.203.164.38 (gluck - mirror at ANU) is an example.

Minor issues via '''BR''':

 * make http://www.debian.org/CD/http-ftp/ more compact (like CD/vendors, need mirror_list.pl tweak, and sorting the user country first)
 * inter-sites links under the red button ? (symoon solution does work with CSS2 browsers, not IE7..)
 * 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)

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?
