Project Phoenix improves the usability of the eclipse.org site.
Official project site: http://www.eclipse.org/phoenix/.
Themes for 2007
Ease of Use / usability
Work still needs to be done here, especially on the Projects pages and on some project pages. We also agreed to provide more assistance to our projects for web design
Target for end of January. Design team to work with IT in getting it on the eclipse.org servers. Authentication to be against the Bugzilla database.
Standard development environment
Wayne and Nathan agreed to come up with a Xampp solution so that every Phoenix committer can have a standard dev environment, databases and all.
We agreed to invest time modernizing the visual appearance of the Phoenix skin.
We agreed that some of the most visible pages need a backup committer who can care for them should the owner be unavailable. To that extent, we agreed on the following backups:
- Home page: Nathan owner, Denis backup. Matt can also be a backup should the need be.
- EPIC: Nathan owner, Matt backup
- downloads pages: Denis owner, Karl backup.
- Resources: Wayne owner, Nathan backup
Common look & feel across the site
We agreed that in 2007, all projects will be required to adopt the Phoenix look as resolved by the Board. Nathan will be available to assist projects in moving their pages, and Mike will take care of notifying the community about the web page guidelines in early January.
We agreed that dev.eclipse.org could become a Committer Portal.
