Hi Luis,

First, i'd like to thank you for the great themes, wallpapers and icons you made and which anyone can see at

For what you propose, i agree that the side bar should directly point to categories as you wrote, plus: - a "contribute" section which would concern artwork, translations, doc writing and programming,
- a "download" link to isos and torrents,
- and links to other languages (as it is now).

I think this would be clearer for newcomers than what it is now.

Moreover, as you pointed out, i agree the website theme should reflect the one in gNewSense system. As i said above, i like what you've done and think it would be great to update the gNS skin your way.

For the W3C thing, i think it's linked to PmWiki, i would be great to have a valid page, but the theme and sidebar changes seem more important to me.

Quoting Luis Felipe Lopez Acevedo <address@hidden>:

Hello all,

A few days ago I started to study how Pmwiki works because I'd like to
propose a change in structure and look for gNewSense website.

Following is an example of how I'd like the website to be:

It is in Spanish right now but here's the translation of the main navigation

Home | Documentation | Support | Development | News | Philosophy

*Home*: This will give a basic description of the operating system and why
it is important. Also, it will give three entry points: the first one for
potential users, the second one for current users, and the last one for developers (programmers, translators, documentation writers, artists, etc)

*Documentation*: A collection of documents that cover basic to advance
topics about using the operating system.

*Support*: Descriptions of how to use lists, forums, and IRC to get help.

*Development*: This is where all the teams responsible for the improvement
of the system and its "ecosystem" will organize themselves.

*News*: This should link to a blog that could keep informed all the
community about gNewSense and about what can be done with it.

*Philosophy*: That, the philosophy of gNewSense community.

In my humble opinion, this change would separate more clearly the
information for users from the information for developers and would make it easier to navigate through the website.

The look of the website should use the colors of the current theme of the
operating system.

Another thing I think is important is that the pages should follow the W3C
recommendations for markup (XHTML) and style (CSS). Currently, some of (or
the pages of the website don't validate:<>

I'd like to hear What you think about my proposal.

Finally, I'm not asking you to make the change; I want to help as much as I

Best regards and thanks in advance,
