Website/Documentation is missing prominent and up-to-date information on the current status of TG

Reported by: Chris Arndt Owned by: Chris Arndt
Priority: high Milestone: 1.1
Component: Web site Version:
Severity: normal Keywords: tosplit


The information about the current status of TurboGears on the official website is outdated and lacking information about latest developments. We hope to have a general overhaul of the web site before PyCon 2008. In the mean time, we should probably move  http://docs.turbogears.org/1.0/DevStatus to  http://docs.turbogears.org/DevStatus and add some more background information and then link it from the TG homepage.

 http://docs.turbogears.org/DevStatus has been created and filled and  http://docs.turbogears.org/1.0/DevStatus now redirects to it.

The latter is linked from  http://www.turbogears/about/, so the information is accesible.

We should still put a prominent announcement on the webpage.

See also #1818.

From #1818:

Even the "development" link on www.turbogears.org points to a wiki page which does not mention 2.0.

That is not true. The "Development" link points to  http://docs.turbogears.org/Contributing and this page explains the different TurboGears branches in SVN within the first few paragraphs of the page.

Anyway, I inserted a reference to the  DevStatus page in a new section right at the start of the page.

Still, we need a new 2.0 section on the web site. I believe, Mark Ramm is onto this.

  • Keywords tosplit added
  • Component changed from Documentation to Web site

With our current plans to redo turbogears.org I think we can finally close this, let's hope before pycon09 :)

  • Status changed from assigned to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

I'll close this now, because the link in the header on the website now points to the 2.0 docs and the DevStatus page on the doc wiki is also up to date and links to the 2.0 docs too.

We probably should have a doc explaining the situation with the different branches, but that can wait until the future of the 1.5 branch is decided. I'll open a separate ticket for this.
