Hi David, Cor, Sophie, all,

I already wanted to reply to Sophie's mail, but didn't manage to do so...

In my opinion (but it's only mine ;-), the Dev text should have its own
tab, it may break a little bit the global appearance, but we really need
developers, so I would prefer a less nice design if they have more
chance to get there information faster and participate :-)

I support your idea, Sophie :-)

OK, will do. Sophie, can you mail me a text in French (I'll translate)
for QA, please? The existing "Get Involved" will become "Developers",
and other project areas (documentation, QA, etc.) will get sub-pages
off the "Developers" page. Sounds OK?

Please don't subsum all the other projects under "Developer".

An artist will never search for a way to contribute under the "Developer" tab, I doubt the same for 
marketing, webdesign or documentation.

In opposition to Sophie and Cor I like the "Get involved" tab very much. In my eyes this attracts 
developers too.

What should be done is:
- show the broad area of possible contribution in more graphical way (I know - that needs some 
- attract developers in the most prominent way on the "Get involved" page.

Even if we need new developers more than any other contributors (I don't really know if this is 
true, but I believe what I've been told), the starting place for contribution should show our 
community in a whole. LibreOffice should try to avoid discrimination between code contributors and 
non-code contributors wherever it is possible without negative effects.

I'm quite sure, that it *is* possible to attract developers with prominent information on the "Get 
involved" page in (nearly?) the same way as with a "Developer" tab.

And coming back to the two-level navigation on the top: This would allow to move directly to a 
"Developer" sub-category, if we had (sorry, no graphical devices here at work):
                                                           (mouse over)
|   HOME   |   DOWNLOAD   |   FEATURES   |   GET HELP   |   *GET INVOLVED*   | ...

with the second line in lighter green or blue.

Best regards
