We were a bit silent for last month with our reports here, but meetings and work was going on as usual. For me December is the busiest time and writing minutes was last thing on my mind.
And here is the summary what was done and discussed in last 3 meetings:
- @tomberek and @hugolgst joined the marketing team! Welcome!
- Styles was extracted out from
nixos-homepagerepository and was placed in GitHub - NixOS/nixos-common-styles: Common styles for NixOS related web sites.. This will enable us to there other sites (status.nixos.org, search.nixos.org, etc…) with a similar design and reuse the work that we have already did here.
- We discussed what is the policy on using other brands on nixos.org (aws, gcloud, azure, docker, caching, nixbuild, …). In short: Having the tutorials around specific brand (service) is fine and desired. It must not be written as an advertisement, but as a tutorial.
- New font was selected as promised that this would be one of the last steps after implementing the design. You can see discussion here: Experiment with different fonts by garbas · Pull Request #663 · NixOS/nixos-homepage · GitHub
- A commercial page is being updated (waiting for companies to provide information). This time around the order is going to be random. More at Commercial page rework by garbas · Pull Request #670 · NixOS/nixos-homepage · GitHub
- Blog/News section is going to be added, but we’re still working on the content. More at Blog sections of the website by garbas · Pull Request #669 · NixOS/nixos-homepage · GitHub
- Faceted/Filtered search is going to be added very very soon. You can see the preview below and you can follow progress under: https://github.com/NixOS/nixos-search/pull/261
As you can see we are steadily making progress and discussing item as then come up. Let us know what you think.
