[CentOS-devel] Lang subsites/ portals
mail-lists at karan.org
Thu Nov 19 12:23:55 UTC 2009
The meeting last evening was mostly fruitful. There were 4 major points
that came through:
1) Do we want the language specific content to go in as
<lang>.centos.org with forums and a small portal behind each one of
those ( like fr.centos.org ) - or is it more userfriendly to have the
resources abstracted out and each language specific content being marked
in different namespace from the english content - eg. wiki.centos.org
and wiki.centos.org/es . This would imply a forums.centos.org comes up
and the spanish specific content is held at forums.centos.org/es
2) A unified login setup is considered fairly high value, so one
username/password would work across all the various *.centos.org sites.
There are a few different ways to achieve this, however only when the
user facing decisions are made will we look into this so as to not waste
time with options that are not usable or will not be usable in the final
3) We want to ideally only have one instance of any bit of software, and
have that support the languages natively. If there isnt any support for
multiple languages - consider what is involved in bringing that language
4) Most of the people who attended the talk where people who dont
themselves either use the forums or know much about them and how they
are used - so the idea came up to put together a set of questions, and
then have the existing forum users and list users provide some feedback.
Exactly what these questions need to be, is something that needs working
on. A wiki page will get setup and we can all put in suggestions.
During the meeting it was agreed that we would discuss these points here
in the lists so as to get some traction around them. And then have
another 45 min chat in a few weeks time to recap on development and
also to finalise what questions need to be in the questionnaire.
: so if you are 40 min late, dont be surprised if everyone else
leaves after 5 minutes :)
