Issues at hand

There seems to be an issue with the proliferation of image repositories both on the wiki and the ooo-site. This proposal is to perform an overall cleanup and possibly suggest some enhancements and clarity to the way the the website and other related projects (marketing, branding) are structured.

Planning

The proposal includes certain conventions and sub proposals:

  • Cleanup of the ooo-site/images folder, eliminate unused and unnecessary content from the folder.
  • Improve the name convention to a more canonical file name.
  • Consolidate repositories for all of the above
  • Decide whenever content should still be kept in www-site as opposed to wiki 

Goals

Provide a simpler and easier way to identify images through simplicity. As a community, future web developers will engage on this work and is important not only to document the work, but also make it easy enough for new comers to get a handle of the assets and structure.

Current work

The ooo-site has the following file structure:

Legacy conventions

Certain convention on the filename can be identified on the images folder, a pre-identifier such as action as well as logo. The exception seems to be the asf-logo.png

AOO Logo folder uses AOO and AOO4 to identify the core logos although there are many files that don't follow such convention, such as Apache_OpenOffice_Logo...OOo_Website get-aoo-300x100 ooo-logo.png christmas-logo.png and dfd-site-log

SVG source folder follows no conventions.

New conventions

introduce the following conventions:

  • main: for root-level html files
  • logo: update logos with the <entity>-logo convention
  • svg: adjust svg to only the AOO related logos (including event-type logos like www, dfd or christmas)

A good proposal is to also include other web project related sources like wiki, forums, extensions, templates, etc. A counter proposal is to get rid of the svg folder all together. Another proposal is to start using SVG as part of the website.
