Re: [libreoffice-design] Topic for design team to investigate: Content hosting consolidation on ask.libreoffice.org


Forgot that Bjoern actually mentioned some of the somehows

Technical infrastructure was lacking for contributors:

and lack of categorisation-ability which makes it useless for sharing certain templates:

Those look mainly like technical problems to me. I’m not sure Plone is the right basis (don't know it), but maybe helping the current maintainer out and addressing the right issues may be a more fruitful attempt to keep a good extension site running than starting from scratch and rediscovering the same old problems. As said, I’m happy to assist him/her, but just redrafting requirements without any observation-based ideas about what makes a great template site (and I just don’t buy the idea that is mainly about the user-accounts) doesn’t end really well anywhere in my book. Maintaining software doesn’t become easier when you build a complex tool (an extensions website) on something that isn’t meant for it (a Q/A site).

Yours,


Maarten
