Re: Community management of main website

Ray Kinsella

Hi Ed,


Looks like this vote occurred after I left the call, so I missed it.


I very much want to commend the work that John DeNisco in particular has done here, it is really impressive.

John has been working tirelessly on the documentation and the website since this time last year, he deserves a lot of recognition for this.


However I think this bears a little further discussion at the TSC.

For instance, I understand that this will make technical contributors such as PTL’s lives easier.

I am 100% on that page, however do we have input from the marketing committee on the change?

What happens to Linux Foundation marketing support after this change is made?


Could we schedule it as an agenda item tomorrow?

Subject: [] Community management of main website


In todays TSC meeting, the TSC voted to take steps to allow the community to manage the main website.


As part of the discussion, John DeNisco showed off a Github+Hugo+Netlify version of the site, which you can see here:



It is driven by PRs to a github repo.  The repo for the above demo is: if you want to take a look at how it works.


We will be moving this to fdio/site in Github as part of this process.


Anyone can push a PR to alter the website (example).  The PRs generate preview site that can be examined prior to merge.  Deployment of merged content to the main site is automatic.


The other thing the TSC decided today was to ask the PTL of each project to propose 1-2 representatives to get access to review site changes in Github and have access to the Netlify org.


So PTLs, please respond to this email indicating your nominees for those roles.  Please cc them so I have emails to use to invite them to various things.  Bonus points if you can include their Github ids :)


In particular there is a place for each project to list content about themselves here:



There are some mockups for vpp and CSIT, we would like all active projects to provide content.
