Fixing the Linaro Wiki Madness

Registered by Andy Doan on 2011-10-17

The Linaro Wiki can be both a great source of information and a great source of frustration. We'd like to have a discussion about improving some of the big issues.

We have a preliminary set of topics on the etherpad for this session.

Whiteboard

TODO: Does dmart's work item really differ from my "propose structure" item?
TODO: A site map/table-of-contents? ie: http://www.google.com/sitemap.html

Ideas (not yet work items):
* The front page is now missing some links we used to have like OCTO,TS, and ProjectMgmt. We shouldn't just add these to the front page, but figure out where the links belong with regards to all of linaro.org
* The Boards work item might need to be broken out into its own blueprint
