fd.io information visiblity


Joel Halpern
 

For those of us working on this project, we know to look at the wiki, and after a little while where on the wiki to look for information.

 

For an outsider trying to get information, they start from the www.fd.io page.

If they are looking for information on our projects, they have to guess that they should look under “community”, and then go to the “developer wiki” (even though they are not a developer) and then find the projects.

 

It seems like it would help if www.fd.io would clearly identify some of the information from the wiki that is of use to visitors.

I know we can correct this directly, but I believe we can ask LF staff to do so?

Do others share this concern?

 

Yours,

Joel

Yes, very much so. 3-4 clicks to get you where you want to go, and I've also heard from others that they struggle to find where the source code is.

If we contrast it with dpdk.org (which I find very user friendly) everything is on the front page.

Best regards,
Ole

Yes, the dpdk.org pages are MUCH more accessible.
Ed, what do we have to do to cause this problem to get some attention from LF staff?

Yours,
Joel

On DPDK website, we use the KIS logic:
- simple HTML that anyone can understand
- web content is opened to any contributions
http://dpdk.org/browse/tools/dpdk-web/
content updates are reviewed on the mailing list
transposed to FDio, it means a new gerrit component for the web-content

best regards,
Vincent
