I'm sure there are other options too - we need to pick the right one.
Apologies for seemingly being full of stop energy here, but we have a
very deliberate plan for the websites and the above quoted option is not
going to work.
is meant to be a 'brochure' style site focused
specifically on Fedora the OS. It's not meant to make the pitch to
contribution at all - was designed specifically to not.
Community resources are meant to be hosted at fedoraproject.org
Furthermore, the onboarding of new contributors is meant to be handled
through Fedora hubs. The idea behind Fedora hubs is that the work each
team is working on is clear & transparent so you can get a sense of what

I would really hate to see all of this careful consideration and
planning and development effort being disregarded!
So I think what might make the most sense is to build this as a Fedora
Hubs widget rather than Yet Another Website.
Is there anything I can do to help you understand Fedora Hubs better /
understand how such a feature would integrate with it / get involved
with the hubs team?
