Visually or the content?
More content and scope wise.
The font is way too big on everything there, makes it kinda hard to
read, and it may be worth checking how does it look like for
colorblind people with those colours...
Yea, the design/fonts etc. are pretty much vanilla bootstrap + the
Fedora colour palette. It'll all go under review if we decide to take
this to production. I expect the design to change too - this is
something I hacked up to demonstrate how we should have a user friendly
web space aimed at potential contributors.
Content is good, does give an overview for other roles, etc...
Both sites are good for different reasons, the question is, how to
jflory and I had discussed this before I'd hacked up the join.fp.o
prototype. Here's what I think:
wcidff is built using asknot-ng, which is meant to be "as configurable
as possible". It takes a "questions" file and basically parses it to
static html while building a question/answer graph kind of thing for
navigation. It isn't meant to be an "overview" type site at all. The
virtue of asknot-ng is the simplicity of deployment - set up questions
in order, tweak css, run script, deploy - "extending" it to generate a
web app that has more data and a more complex structure (of the type
the join prototype has) may not be the easiest thing to do (for me -
and I'm no web developer).
It doesn't seem to me that wcidff was developed as a one stop
onboarding solution anyway - it was developed as a more configurable
version of wcidfm which says, "This project is a place for contributors
to start looking for new projects to work on. This will guide you in
the right direction depending on your preferred development language.",
and it does just that - help folks find tasks - it doesn't claim nor
try to give an overview of mozilla, and neither does wcidff.
It's also worth noting that in spite of having wcidfm, mozilla still
has a complete "contribute" section on it's main website to help
contributors get started. Fedora lacks such a resource at the moment.
Worth a look:
So, we could get rid of join.fp.o entirely (as in redirect it to
) and extend getfedora.org
to include an overview section
- - in the style mozilla does it:
Currently, getfedora serves to help people find the right Fedora
edition and download it, and little else. It has a "Join" link in the
*footer* which takes you to join.fp.o (which is an ugly data dumped
Or we could get back fedoraproject.org
which would be more general like
the mozilla front page, and then link to getfedora.org
and so on?
I'm sure there are other options too - we need to pick the right one.
