#85: Updated "Upcomming Events" content

The content in "Upcomming Events" section on the join-page  is
referring to content from 2010.
The content should be updated or generalized enough as not to put dates in
the area but still make sense and be accurate.
Any other ideas/suggestions would definitely be welcomed.

Dear websites members and contributors,
I want to share my ideas about a restyling of our download pages and
try to collect other opinions and thoughts in order to realize a
user-friendlier and nicer download page management.
Actually we have also an input from FESCo to make the Cloud Images
more visible , so, why not remake the pages of the other arches
Our actual download pages are still remanends from older methods of
shipping Fedora. We had 6 or 7 CDs, spins and some netinstall CDs, but
now the arches and formats are much more and we are creating
confusion. This leads to misunderstandings and we are also not able to
promote all the arches the right way.
Actually we have 4 download pages on fp.o:
and we have also http://spins.fedoraproject.org !
My thought would be to:
1) Create a drop-down menu on our main page, where we can also add in
the next months other important changes (fedoramagazine, features,
etc), to help users to find their desired format or spin faster than
now. I'm adding a mockup for this here. 
2) Drop the get-fedora-all page completely!
This doesn't mean I don't want it's content. I'd think more of having
no more duplicates (some spins are available on 2 or more pages) and
complete our very nice get-fedora-options page with missing
Finally I'd like to have all spins on spins.fp.o, which means we have
to include our spin page better in our main fedoraproject.org site to
have the same effect as now.
3) Use the get-fedora page to promote all the shipping methods
The clearest method to do so IMHO would be to drop also the right
random banners we have on the sidebar (Desktop, 2nd-arches, Cloud,
Spins) and to put them into the get-fedora page. See a mockup here
, althoough it's not complete (obviously I don't want to have the
2nd-arches banner alone there and will make them nicer when writing
the code). The banners should link to the tabs in get-fedora-options
or to our spins page and give users a clear idea of what is available.
Same for get-pre-release:we can continue to promote it easily on the
get-fedora page and we could also advertise it better on our main page
(drop down menu).
4) Sidebar: if we want to go ahead with this kind of restyling we can
drop a lot of stuff on our sidebar, like the rotating banners and the
Instead of it why not use something nicer? Badges or social networks
for example? Look at this mockup , I'd love it.
I have created a dedicated branch (web-dl-redesign) to work on and try
to have it all running and ready for production within F20 GA Release.
Please let me know your thoughts, your ideas and improvements, I'd be
also happy if someone wants to help me with this part of work. Kévin
(shaiton) will do the background scripting part (thx) to have our
variables running the right way also for a completely new download
And thanks to Maria (tatica) for her drop down menu mockup ;)
I've been thinking a little bit about why our collaborative documenation,
and, you know, why it's a painful mess despite all of the awesome interested
people we have. I think that part of it is that our wiki is intimidating,
and I think that's partly because we use the wiki in different ways all
1. End-user and developer documentation that isn't as formalized as that
at https://docs.fedoraproject.org/ but is still very useful.
2. Workspace for communication, like the features / changes pages, the
font request workflow, or even just the packages wishlist.
3. Free-for-all drafts and ideas that may eventually turn into one of the
above and may go no where, but shouldn't really be mixed in because
it's not at that level.
I wonder if there's a way we can make the distinction more obvious, and
steer people appropriately?

On the Verify your ISO Download page
(https://fedoraproject.org/en/verify) you have a link to Fedora's GPG
keys (curl https://fedoraproject.org/static/fedora.gpg | gpg --import).
I have run this curl statement today and this is the output:
curl https://fedoraproject.org/static/fedora.gpg | gpg --import
% Total % Received % Xferd Average Speed Time Time Time
Dload Upload Total Spent Left
100 5363 100 5363 0 0 6195 0 --:--:-- --:--:-- --:--:--

gpg: key 246110C1: public key "Fedora (20) <fedora(a)fedoraproject.org>"
gpg: Total number processed: 2
gpg: imported: 2 (RSA: 2)
Running gpg --list-keys then gives:

sub 4096g/793BFD4D 2013-06-19
pub 4096R/246110C1 2013-05-16
uid Fedora (20) <fedora(a)fedoraproject.org>
Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I had assumed that the .gpg file at
fedoraproject.org/static should load more than two signatures. Also, the
Fedora Secondary (19) signature looks incorrect. Am I missing something
obvious here, or is there an issue with this link.
