Subject [jira] Commented: (JS2-83) Site Documentation, Architectural Overview
Date Sat, 19 Nov 2005 23:55:26 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JS2-83?page=comments#action_12358074 ] 

David Le Strat commented on JS2-83:

As part of this exercise, I would like to propose reorganizing the documentation structure
a bit:

1.  We should differentiate the role of the main site from the role of the subprojects sites.
 I propose that we locate each subproject documentation in the matching component xdocs. 
For instance, profiler goes into /components/profiler/xdocs.   Each subproject has a PDF document
that can be exported for the relevant section.  The subproject documentation focus on the
implementation aspects of a specific component.

The role of the main site is to provide guidance in locating the documentation for each component
and to provide reference docs that cut across components.

2.  I would like to reorganize the main docs navigation as follow:

         Getting Started

         Source Code

         Documentation Guides -> Links to a page with an organized list of documentation
guides - The guides provide a quick list of references/links to resources around a specific
topic, when necessary the guide will link to the relevant documentation in the sub project.
  For instance Guide to Developing Portlets, Guide to Customizing Pages, Guide to Jetspeed
Pipeline,  etc.
         Jetspeed API
         Jetspeed Plugin

Key Components
         Page Manager

These are links to the subproject pages from the main page.  Another option is to centralize
those into a Guide to J2 Components (see above) and a better option in my opinion.

About J2
        For J1 Users
        Supporting Projects (Bridge, Pluto, Apache DS, Derby, Maven, etc...)
        Who Uses J2
        Portlets Community
        How to Help

        Mailing List
        Bug Database
        Quality Testing
        Source Code Repository

I look forward to your input.  Once we have a consensus on the docs structure, I will start
putting the pieces in place. 

We already started to track the larger documentation effort under


Once we are in agreement on the structure I will create additional subtasks for people to
sign up in the parent task.
