(!) ?Discussion


Most of the stuff regarding webmaster work is described at the aforementioned web site and all prospective editors are highly recommended to read it.

Interacting with the team

Usual roles

All work is shared in two teams:

  • people in the debwww group - particular webmaster-only stuff
  • people in the webwml group - everything reachable via webwml CVS

The webwml CVS/group does the bulk of the editing. The debwww Unix group handles the bits necessary for webwml to propagate onto the web site, CGI scripts, and similar intricate details.

You can request CVS commit access through the alioth project, please fill in the comment box with a reasoning.

Get involved

You are skilled in design/CSS or coding/Perl, know about the firebug/webdeveloper toolbars, are ready to understand required constraints of debian.org websites and want to make them clearer and improve navigation? Join us, there are plenty of bugs to solve and improvement to be achieved.

Even if you don't see yourself in the above mentioned skills, you still can help the web team in various ways: People working on the content of specific subparts (like events pages, users or consultants subareas) are also very welcome. You don't need much knowledge about the above mentioned parts, just being willing to dig into stuff and invest a bit of time every now and then.

So, if you want to join the webteam the first step is subscribe our mailing list and join the team IRC channel #debian-www at irc.debian.org.
