Plan for the future of the Jakarta site
(Hen unless otherwise stated or volunteers step forward)
- Vendor page
- Newsletter Editor page - move to wiki? kill?
- Reference library - partly to a generic Java page and partly to a generic CVS page.
- packageversioning* (nothing links to this)
- versioning.html (nothing links to this)
- idedevelopers.html (nothing links to this)
- proposal.html (way out of date)
- Flatten Project Guidelines and all the other 'how to' pages into a shallower structure.
Move JSPA stuff to www.apache.org. Geir.
- Translation sites. What to do about them.
Removal of information that may be found at http://www.apache.org/dev/, the Incubator or other ASF locations.
- Download improvements:
Update to include nightly snapshots at http://cvs.apache.org/snapshots/
- Change filenames from 1.0.zip to project-1.0.zip. Do this by making the name equal the filename if no name is specified.
- Remove Commons from Commons components?
Migration of reference pages into Foundation. Robert - ONGOING
- Update mail.html page. Some lists may be dead and the stated noise of each list is incorrect.
- Generated project info pages to replace mail, cvs/svn, jira/bugzilla/scarab, wiki parts. Would also link to the download page for said project. Could grow to cover Java@Apache.
- Javadoc index/directory.
- Java@Apache considerations. Indexing systems for javadoc, jars, downloads etc. IRC channel? Java-based reference pages?
- Increasingly simplify the site's HTML and improve its CSS.
