Website Design Package Available & Checklist Question (was: Re: [libreoffice-design] Fwd: LibO-3.3-rc1 download icons still mentions "beta")


Hi Bernhard, all!

Well, this topic has been open since quite a while ... so finally "just
doing something" is better than waiting forever ;-)

This mail addresses two topics:
* the availability of the Website Design Package
* the question whether an update checklist does make sense

The good news (to me) is, that I won't be able to update the graphics;
time constraints :-\

But, I finally managed to upload the graphics "package" to the wiki. So
if there is any need, it should be very simple to export the updated
graphics (file names can be found in a sub-folder). I already removed
the "Beta" from the buttons ... but please have in mind that these
graphics were created some time ago, so they don't correspond with the
current branding guidelines (small color differences that might not
matter that much).

You can find the graphics at "Create and Publish Website Artwork":

Basically, it is the source file of what I've presented some time ago in
a blog posting:

Bernhard, anybody - could you please take care of this issue while I'm
away? If the website team responds / comes up with a decision, we should
try to remove the "release blocking" issue. Thanks!

We had this discussion before (privately, some time ago), when the .DEB
files were made available on the download page. We came to the
conclusion that too many (large) buttons might make this problem even
worse. Therefore I played with some designs, e.g. grouping buttons and
just adding some small lines below.

Thus, although the script solution may look odd, it is the superior
solution, or? And since I am a bit lost in the recent discussions - is
there any agreement what script / site design to use? May it be helpful
to have a look at it - from the Design Team's perspective (usability and
such stuff)?

New topic ...

Since it feels really odd to have missed the RC1 release and the update
of the buttons. Do you think it will be helpful to have some kind of
checklist that does contain all the stuff that is required in advance? I
know, we do have very experienced people and things will settle (a.k.a.
be done automagically ...), but I'd like to hear your opinion on that.
The update of the website (graphics) may be part of this ...

When I worked on the branding page, I started a (tiny) list to not
forget anybody if the branding is updated:

Bye,
Christoph
