As a result of inputs from Sophie and Christoph, it is clear now that the Drupal site would be
definitely used, and it will be given more time to fully address the needs of all stakeholders in
the LibO ecosystem.
We all know that many contributors already have their own favorite tools.
The Drupal site would have to offer the same or equivalent/compatible tools.
It may also offer tools that are so much superior that the contributors would not resist a
That brings us to the topic of "How to collect stakeholder needs systematically".
The final design of the Drupal website will heavily depend on what every group wants.
I understand from Michael that this need-collection (and collation) is not attempted yet.
I propose to contribute in this area.
The stakeholders are as follows (please add if I have missed out any-):
Steering Committee Marketing team/EvangelistsUsability TeamProject managersQA teamRelease
Management teamConfiguration Management team
Architects/designersCodersTestersProduct-support (bug-tracker) teamAuthors of built-in Help
systemAuthors of User's Manual
Authors of Programmer's Manual
Authors of commercial books Commercial service providers
Several functional areas overlap, and therefore the same team may handle those related areas.
Config Management and Release Management (or Project Management and Release Management).
Marketing and Usability (or Design and Usability).
Marketing team will have to speak for the needs of commercial book authors and service-providers.
Those who are busy with v3.3 can join after the release.
To start with, we should identify the leads for these teams. That will make coordination easier.
Next, we need a platform to collect the needs of each group (including favorite tools).
IMHO Drupal site itself would be the best platform to host these pages.
The third step would be to explore possible solutions that meet those needs.
This would be the hardest step, because there are a lot of choices out there for each task.
I hope Michael will provide tools that allows online brainstorming and advocacy.
Mail lists will NOT be a good platform to discuss this issue further.
We need at least a wiki page (or, better a separate forum)
