Although we agreed to set up an Etherpad for this during the last call, thinking about it more I’m certain this would’ve been a bad idea. For brainstorming and collection stuff like this, outlines make much more sense, and visual outlines like mindmaps are much easier for our human brains to cope with.
So I found a collaborative mindmap software, that is both open-source as well as available for free as a hosted service. After checking it’s good enough for what we need, I added initial content. Please keep in mind that this is not necessarily exactly the structure of pages and links! The mindmap is meant to collect all information we want to communicate in a structured way. Here’s a public non-editable view of it:
For the actual content and wording, I already added some links to new, separate etherpads. We can now add more pads whenever we need them, but keep them focussed on just that part of the content.
For both the map and the pads, please try not to delete existing things, but always add to them, so we can then select and prioritize from all of the contributed input. It is also possible to add comments to points. Check out the features of the software a bit, and you’ll find more useful things that we can use, like e.g. icons (e.g. progress, importance, etc).
I’m inviting the email addresses I have of the core team now. Please let me know your email on IRC, if you didn’t receive an invitation, but would like to help collect content and structure for the new website. Thanks!
