General Web topics

  • Implement a working communication bridge between promo, www, docu and sysadmins (mailinglist, contact persons documented?)
  • Skin - Chihuahua 2 - in relation to all websites
  • Aiming for consistency and ease of maintenance - creating templates, etc.
    • Branding/graphics guidelines?
  • Documentation relating to website design and maintenance

Wiki Topics

  • Liquid Thread display issues
  • Can and should the Translate system be added to TechBase?
  • What issues stop TechBase and Community pages being kept up-to-date?
  • Future of hard-to-maintain pages such as http://userbase.kde.org/Issues_Knowledge_Base

UserBase Development

  • UserBase Help topics - check relevance, organisation and ease of access.
  • Adopt a Project - elicit commitment to keep specific pages as up to date as possible.
  • Develop a set of useful Dynamic Page Lists scripts for admins to gather statistics.
  • Investigate creation of a UI to enable users to earch Main and Talk namespaces in more detail than currently possible.
  • Create a Book - define needs for off-line documentation and write documentation to achieve it. Investigate special needs such as all pages in a specific language (how does Special:myLanguage affect this?)
  • If we consider CDs of off-line documentation we need to be able to add the animated gifs from the Plasma/How-To pages. Would PDFs correctly link to them?
  • Moving a page that has associated translations - what is required to get this working?


  • Discuss ways of rewarding/acknowledging contribution - separate for translations and English new material (stats are different).
  • How to encourage developers and Forum admins to point users to UserBase articles?
