Contents

Attending

Mik Kersten, Dave Mitropoulos-Rundus, Raji Akella, Kimberley Peter, Neil Hauge, Susan Yeshin

Community outreach

Discussion about how to advertise the existence of this group and the work that is going on. When we get closer to having something to say, we will use blogs and mailing lists to broadcast the group's activities.

Discussion about resources

Q: Should we troll mailing lists to get more resources?
A: Not until we have a core set of content available.

Plan for M7

We would like to have an initial offering for the M7 milestone. What we would like to include:

Discussion of conversion of the 2.1 guidelines

We came up with the following way to distribute and track the work:

  • Post a comment on the talk page
  • Create a sandbox area on the wiki linked from the talk page
  • Send an email to ui-best-practices-working-group mailing list telling people what you are working on and where to find your sandbox

Discussion of screenshots

Guidelines for screenshots to be used in the guidelines:

  • Use Windows XP or Vista
  • Use the Windows XP Silver theme
  • No image is to be bigger than 1024 pixels (wide) - Most view and editor shots will be smaller
  • Eclipse Windows only - no desktop matter

To dos

  • Kimberley to send out a draft top 10 list
  • Various contributors will do conversions

Next call

Next meeting will be on March 28th. Tod Creasey will give a UI walkthough of the Platform UI from Europa M6.
