How time flies, this was our 6th meeting. Due to everybody being busy we were fewer then usual but we took the time to look at what was done and what are we planning to do. You can watch the discussion here.
- Landing page is about to be merged (was already merged since the meeting)
- search.nixos.org will be finalized in next day or two
- Looking back at what was done so far:
- separated the website from the infrastructure and moved to netlify
- Reorganized the structure of the website. Navigation was confusing at some point since each project (Nix/NixOS/Nixpgs/NixOps/Disnix/Patchelf) was having its own navigation.
- Removed some projects from the website and only left Nix and NixOS, but told as a single “story”
- Documentation got a bit easier to reach (Learn page)
- search.nixos.org improved the relevance of results
- Future roadmap
- to stay on point we only discussed only what we want to do until next release (~90days) and only what we are willing to work on
- More documentations (tutorials/guides/…), #443
- Change how we talk about Nix/NixOS on the landing page, #444
- Find better examples for landing page, #445
- Blog / News section (aggregate some categories on discourse and integrate planet.nixos.org), #446
- Add up-to-date EC2/Azure/GCP images to Download page, #447
- Help with 20.09 release with helping to write release notes and release announcement (Yes, 20.09 will have a “proper” release announcement :P), #448
- Redesign of the website (no changing in how we build the website), #449
- This can be quite controversial topic and many will want to contribute to discussion. There is no plan - yet - how we will approach this, but we will try to do our best and resources that we have.
- search.nixos.org improvements, #450
- Commercial support page, #451
- Companies listed in random order, with logo and description what they do in regards to Nix/NixOS
- Collect Testimonials and Success stories
- Jobs section of the website, #452
As you probably noticed the Landing page change went live and if you were wondering what is going to happen next I hope this writing serves as a nice roadmap for what is coming in next 3 months.
Thank you for all the constructive feedback that we received so far.
