@aheath1992 Hi, sorry it took me so long to get to this. I'll bring it up at the next meeting (Mar 16). I'm not completely opposed to this, but on the other hand, the front page is looking really messy as it is, we'll have to redesign it at some point in the near future and even if we accept this PR now, I can't guarantee we won't move gaming docs back somewhere deeper later.

In the meantime, I see you added gaming docs to the front page but you haven't removed them from their original location. Could you please do that? It's in engineering/modules/ROOT/pages/index.adoc. Thanks!

  • Removed gaming from engineereing
3 months ago

@pbokoc I have made the change, I have seen the news on the main page redesign, I'm not to worried about that, we can always make the same request or have discussions during the redesign about where the best location for the gaming community to live.

In the meantime, I see you added gaming docs to the front page but you haven't removed them from their original location. Could you please do that?

Why? I don't see harm in having multiple ways to reach docs. In particular since the Engineering page in question is intended to be a semi-authoritative list of Engineering teams, removing it seems like a regression to me.

I must admit I don't do any gaming with a computer, so I don't know it is serious on Linux or if we make a laughing stock of ourselves. But gaming is widespread. And I find it quite appealing to have gaming on the home page alongside all the serious stuff like workstation, server, coreOS, etc. It would be a statement, provided we really don't make a laughing stock of ourselves in the gaming world.

I see you added gaming docs to the front page but you haven't removed them from their original location.

I advocate leaving the gaming section under engineering, but taking out the user documentation, i.e. the installation section, and moving it to the docs page. The current gaming under engineering contains a lot about teamwork, that belongs right there and should stay there.

I just see, that IOT has the same pages in engineering and in docs. This should get corrected.

@bcotton My reasoning is that the Engineering page and the front page have so much stuff on them it's hard to find something without Ctrl+F unless you know where to look for, and if we start duplicating links it's only ever going to get worse.

@aheath1992 we discussed this at yesterday's docs meeting. The consensus that the Gaming SIG should separate the user-facing content about gaming on Fedora from the content about how the SIG works.

Then we'd add the link to the user-facing content to the front page and have the entry on the Engineering page point to the SIG docs.

Does that make sense? Sorry for the extra work, but we want to try to make the content clear and discoverable.
