[rough sketch for new website]
Two links to Pootle (as it is behind the address ;?

yes, that's correct. In fact one goes to Pootle, the other one

To then? But why? I would only link it on the bottom
of the translations... site (something like "look, this is the
software we are using for translation" ... ;) )

No, sorry, I meant to our own instance of Pootle.

Ah, O.K. Thanks for clarification :)

What about some kind of feed from the blogplanet, when
devs/QAers blog about their work (or better say, some kind of
"blogroll";) )? Or tweets/dents, other Free social network

See the homepage and yesterday's points from Sophie (in a
nutshell: yes, but directly from the homepage).

Would it possiblee to split it? On the main page only
feeds/blogposts/tweets/dents/whatsoever releated to
announcements, on the "Get Involved" page the feeds/... from
devs/QA about related stuff? And maybe for each NL's pages that
in their own language? But I am not sure, if this is possible ...

That's such a great question that I suggest we open a separate
thread about it, and look forward to much fun :p

Well, O.K. Let us see, how many other people will answer there ... 

OTOH: are there any such feeds from QA and dev? I actually think this
all comes from the TDF planet.

- Events
So I thought about this section for a while. It does not
exist anywhere on the current website. In fact, there's
nothing about events anywhere but the wiki. That sucks, not
just for us as for any event organizers who would actually
like to have this kind of promotion anyway. Besides we leave
contributors in the dark on this topic, which is sad.

Would it be possible to add a calendar to the main site (like
on below "News & Events")? Then we have it
visible directly on our main page ... ;) And what about
It is not only available in the wiki ... ;) But you are right.
I think we should place it in a more visible place ... ;)

About the calendar, frankly: this stuff looks unclear. When's
the next event? What's the next three events we're
participating to? If I need more details, I'd just click on
them. The calendar view blurrs the message I think.

For that reason I mentioned the openSUSE site (or maybe other
sites, that may also use some kind of calendar) ... ;) I would
like to see something like their "News & Events" thingie on our
pages (maybe split as well across our different subsites: On the
main site maybe only a calendar with next releases, international
trade fairs etc., on the different subsites like "Get Involved"
one for next QA Call, next QA bug hunting session, something like
that ... ;)

I'm not sure about the super  internal events such as calls that
you're mentioning. But I'm also not sure I get what your point is
with the
OpenSuse  page. To me their section looks very small and almost
confusing. Am I missing something?

Maybe. I was thinking of some kind (I am not sure, how this is 
called correctly, sorry ... :( ) "applet" or "newsfeed", but with 
only relevant announcements for the adequate pages. Like new 
releases, conferences, international trade fairs on the main page, 
but something like QA test session, test releases, QA Conf calls on 
the QA site ... Something like
2013-11-05: LibreOffice offers freelance job...
2013-11-01: LO 4.1.3 released
(just as an example ... ;) And maybe on the "Get Involved" page than 
something like
2013-11-18: Next QA Conf Call
2013-11-07: LO ready for testing

Ah. I think I see your point. To me I don't think this has a real place
on the events section, which in my own opinion (but that's only mine)
ought to be an actual page with nice logos, links and even pictures.
What you describing ought to be on the *front page* with the other

and something like this ... ;) That way, but not as an calendar as 
it is now ... ;) Would this not be more clearer than our calendar?

Is it inteded, that the above mentioned is not linked or btw.?

[About section]
Just out of interest: Would this mean, that you want to remove
the footer of the page, as there is the imprint as well as the
licensing information)? But I am not sure, what you mean with
"source code" here ... :(

Not at all. Of course the footer might get a graphical refresh
but in itself the content of the footer SHOULD NOT change.

O.K. But why would you put the German imprint there, when it is
in the footer of the page?

Ah, because the German law requires it and there's nothing we can
do about it AFAICT.

Really? The German law requires, that it is on our site two times? 
In the footer /and/ below the "About" section?

meeh. We'll keep the footer but we ought to do something smarter with
the page content :-)



As for the source code, we're talking about the source code of
LibreOffice, the software <source code>

Below the "About" page? I would – as a visitor – expect it more
below the download page ... ;)

That's true and it'll be there as well, but duplication is not a
problem for this kind of things I think.


Thanks for your input!

You are welcome :)
