I've taken some time to go over all the pages in the website to evaluate
where we are currently and what should be fixed on short-term with the
current site. I've fixed most issues myself, but these issues require
input from the developers. Please respond to the website list only.
Issues with the current site
* /search.html: in the search results page, the search box should be on
* /irc.html: The list is now probably out-of-date.
* lfs/roadmap.html: This page is seriously out of date. However, the
roadmap should be written by the LFS editors & discussed and approved by
the community. I'd like to ask everyone to add their thoughts to
* lfs/development.html: currently instructions are given for specific
branches. However, we should probably give instructions to download
stable, testing or unstable.
* lfs/packages.html: I'm not sure if the book refers to this page.
However, it might be useful to include some information in the book
itself, since we occasionaly still get questions about this. For the P2P
part; it might be better to standardise on Bittorrent.
* blfs/edguide/guide.html: this seems to be out-of-date. IIRC Bruce
greatly improved it. Bruce, can you re-render the latest version in
* Where is the BLFS roadmap? Can the BLFS editors provide one?
* alfs/news.html: it seems like this page needs to be moved from CVS to
SVN commit log tracking. Also, the order is old->new, while it should
be new->old. Anderson?
* Roadmap: can the Wiki roadmap be incorporated in the site?
* Download/Current SVN: the tarball dates from 6 September and thus
seems to be out-of-date. Or does the tarball only get generated if there
are code changes?
* Download/Profiles and All Guides: idem.
Where is the latest version of the HLFS book?
Download/Patches for BLFS (patches/blfs/) is empty. Should this be
regenerated from the repository or should the link be adjusted?
