[libreoffice-design] Re: Website Design Package Available & Checklist Question


hi Christoph, all!

Sorry for this late reply!

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

can someone take care of this?

As Christoph provided the graphics, it's probably easiest for him to
take care and provide updated graphics (CC'ing him)...

But as this page will probably not survive the next weekend, I don't
know if it is worthwhile to update the graphics.

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).

That's what I did now - just exported the png buttons without "beta", zipped them together and attached them to the issue where these buttons are decided crucial for the final release:
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=32142

As they will probably stay present on the www.documentfoundation.org website even if the www.libreoffice.org website is the more prominent one, when it has been released, my previous thoughts on avoiding unnecessary work have been wrong.

You can find the graphics at "Create and Publish Website Artwork":
http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Marketing/Work_Items#Work_Items

Basically, it is the source file of what I've presented some time ago in
a blog posting:
http://luxate.blogspot.com/2010/11/website-progress-and-looking-back.html

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!

You're already back, but finally I managed to step in...

As Christian asked to remove these buttons or to provide a lot more of
them[1], I'd wait for the website team for their opinion.

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.

I would replace the prominent "GNU/Linux (64bit)" button with "GNU/Linux (DEB)" and have links to all the 64bit versions (RPM and DEB - perhaps sometimes a Windows 64 build) below the buttons area.

But this is just my personal idea. following the requests for DEB builds on different lists.

For the case, that this idea might be reasonable, I already included two buttons "GNU/Linux (RPM)" and "GNU/Linux (DEB)" in the zip-file.

Best regards

Bernhard
PS:

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?

Yes, very much - but I don't know if we can manage this already for the 3.3 release...
