Talk:General Meeting/SPDX Web Site Cleanup
Additional feedback on web site
Some additional feedback - I attach a mock up for what the SPDX home page can be. The figure is available from File:Spdx-mockup.png
I suggest to follow the same structure/template used by other WGs where the home page would include:
- List of participating organizations
- List of upcoming events
- Latest blog entry (instead of publishing blog entries on private or companies web site)
Additional content that is needed:
- "Value Proposition" to various ecosystem players (from silicon vendors all the way up in the chain to end users)
- Add an "FAQ" section
- Add a page with a visual "Roadmap" - where roadmap covers spec releases, tools, F2F, event presence, new content release (such as new papers, data sheets, etc)
- Once governance is set - add a "Governance" page
- Add section on "Contribution Guidelines"
- Add section on "Processes" or "How-to" - examples: How to submit feedback or proposals for new features in the specs? How to submit bug fixes, new code for the tools? etc.
- Add a section on "Participation". Examples include:
- Contact the lead(s) of the team(s) you want to contribute to, get briefed on current state of affairs, and where help is needed the most.
- Join the mailing lists and participate in the discussions.
- Attend the calls as scheduled by the various teams.
- Submit feedback on the specifications following the process set in place.
- Submit bug reports/code contributions to the tools following the development process set in place.
- Submit new use cases, or feedback on existing ones
- Join SPDX™ track at Linux Foundation conferences.
- Create content for SPDX™: papers, web site improvements, blogs, etc.
- Create SPDX™ files for your favorite open source projects
- Add a section for "Users" of SPDX that provides guidance for various users of SPDX that include:
- Users who generate SPDX™ files for downstream users
- Users who request SPDX™ files from upstream suppliers
- User who know how to use, update and maintain an SPDX file that comes in, and who passes that SPDX downstream
- Guidance to "Users" can come in different forms - such as:
- Documentation: How-to style to educate uses about using SPDX™ and also proper ways to submit feedback & questions or even request help for complex cases that the SPDX™ specs may have not covered yet.
- Users 1-day Forum: Parallel to other SPDX™ or Linux Foundation events. The focus of such a forum is to provide tutorial style presentations on using SPDX™.
- Hosted SPDX™ seminars: These seminars could be hosted at companies that are on their way to or have already adopted SPDX™ and they need to educate their (compliance) teams.
- A section for "Developers", discussing as a developer what you need to be doing in your project:
- If you are an open source developer
- If you are a maintainer of an open source project
- If you are acorporate developers working on proprietary code that will be open sourced
- Providing information on release methodology
