I made a local start page for gentoo, which has lots of useful links and search
forms on it - much like (and inspired by) the debian local start page
i wondered if it might be possible to add it to the apache ebuild as the default
it doesn't need much (any) i8n
Steps to Reproduce:
Hey that's wonderful, I like that a lot. I'll be delighted to include it
at my next round of updates...
Would be nice to have a couple of more people take a peek and comment in
>Would be nice to have a couple of more people take a peek and comment in
please do give me all receommendations and I'll change as appropriate- I first posted this in the forums ( http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=51661 ) and got some good feedback from people on there
I'm glad you like it :)
I quite like it as well
its missing some links though, im my opinion.
like a link to the manual that is installed with Apache, via the symlink
in the docroot.
also maybe a link to /doc , which ive taken the liberty of setting up so that you can browse the documentation on your machine...
those two would be nice... other than that, i guess theres no reason to
not include this eh? :-)

done - not sure of the path to that - will check on my box tonight
> also maybe a link to /doc
done - will need to check how to reference file system in a url, again, will check and fix
also fixed weird IE rendering problem, a strange large 'search' button, and some other trivial things
glad you like it
That's nice. A few suggestions:-
-- maybe the colour theme can be made a little more like the forums or the gentoo home page; a little more purplish; just a thought
-- links to the gentoo mailing list archives for gentoo-user and gentoo-dev or even all of them is a possibility in their own section labelled 'Mailing lists'.
-- There's also some links on there which I wouldn't really use at all but that's a preference.
It looks cool the only problem I see with it is that you have multiple languages for index.html in /var/www/localhost/htdocs. (ie index.html.de) So the page would have to be translated and I only know english. :)
> you have multiple languages for index.html in /var/www/localhost/htdocs.
couldn't we start with it just being the index.html.en version, and any i8n-ness would happen later?
Have checked links, removed linkrot, and added a bmg link, btw
* Gentoo Home
* Gentoo forums
* All current packages
* Gentoo bugs
* Gentoo lists
* CVS changelog
* user docs
* Developer docs
be changed to something like
* CVS changelog
* Developer docs
At least breakmygentoo and gentoo-portage are not offical. From my point of view they could be just removed.
Carsten, good point about gentoo.org and misc, done
Removing the bmg/gentoo-portage links? I use 'em, dunno about anyone else.
George, I just think it should be made clear what is Gentoo and what is releated only. When you add bmg, where will you stop? E.g. sites like gentoo.de, gentoo.it,... could be added, too.
Will look at it again later. People are concenered about branding when we figure out what to do then we will revist this again.
