#You're right, but the perspective you're giving is what we need.
#Sometimes when you're so close to a project it's easy to miss the
#details, as you point out. We covered the major things, got the
#tutorials in there, some community stuff, but we are missing content on
#what we are as an organisation.
#What the committee does, even if it's a summary of what the (mostly
#quiet) committee mailing list discusses, is a mystery to everyone else.
Somebody needs to be passed the round tuit so the content describing
1/ What the ILUG is as an organisation (quick question: would the
adequately cover this?)
2/ detail what the committee does, who is on it and what responsibilities
#We *know* that the new site isn't the best laid out sometimes (witness
#the search for connection scripts, Ken has linked them from
#the new user
#section now.) Complaining about things gets things fixed.
Precisely - even if it is about something that we already know must be done;
it helps increase the priority attached to that task.
And people, I'm not psychic and I doubt Donncha is either - if you have
ideas on what could be added to the site (functionality or content) then
#Would people appreciate an automatically generated message
#list of major updates? That's a very easy thing to do, either with a
#diff between versions of pages (unlikely to be popular/useful) or
#comments added by the updating person.
such a message should be sent at the discretion of the maintainer or
people will, I suspect, getting miffed off with updates informing them
of corrected spelling mistakes...
#There are 3 people at the moment preparing articles AFAIR which is great!
#It's a lot of work, looking for volunteers, not right now,
#wait 'till we get something in place to handle the comms, hmm, Goldmine
or citadel/ux plus that frontend you mentioned...
