Hi, Fedora design team!
I apologize for a non-fedora request, but considering that we're "upstream"
of Fedora, I figured it wouldn't be too frowned upon. Plus, I've been
active with Fedora for so long, you guys are the first place I could think
of to go to for a volunteer site design for kernel.org
If any of you have visited www.kernel.org
lately, you'll notice that it
looks like it was last revamped in 1995. I'm working on redoing the
website, and as part of that effort I'd like to introduce a slightly less
austere facelift. Perhaps some of you would like to lend me a hand? The
following are some of the requirements:
1. People go to www.kernel.org
to find out the latest kernel info, so
the releases table seen on the front page must be above-fold if at all
possible. This is really the core service of the site.
2. The design should use the default Linux Penguin logo somewhere
prominent. We *are* the home of Linux.
3. The design should remain conservative and elinks-friendly. You'd be
surprised how many hits we get from terminal browsers.
4. I think we should keep the existing yellow-white-blue colour scheme
to preserve continuity.
5. "Site news" will be on its own page -- nobody really cares to have
that on the front page. Other content will be updated and shrunk but remain
6. I like the links-footer on https://fedoraproject.org/en/get-fedora
-- something like that would work very well for kernel.org
7. It's going to be a statically-generated website using pelican (
). There is no active content
anywhere, so all I'm looking for, really, is a very handy header and a very
handy footer. :)
If any of you are interested, please let me know. I would be happy to
provide you with more information. I will be happy, of course, to credit
the Fedora Design team on the site.
Linux Foundation, kernel.org
