New grid layout
The new 2x2 grid layout that HLandau has created looks like a step in the right direction, although I'm confused why each grid region has an unused unstyled div. Is this meant to be used for something in the future, or can it be removed?
Also, there should probably be a discussion on how best to group the four categories; for example, at the moment there are three different links to different parts of the Hardware Compatibility list, which looks to me like a waste of the home page real estate.
Criteria for Software Porting Efforts
Why not just make a porting category with a list (A-Z) of applications with ongoing ports?
I just saw that this is already the case. But the list contains only "P". I don't think this is optimal, because there will be +100 applications at some point. -- MPC7500 (talk) 8:30, 17 March 2019 (CDT)
I have recently added a few links to the "External Links" section on the wiki main page .
There are a few more which could be useful:
- linuxppc wiki
- linuxppc-dev Patchwork
- linuxppc-dev Mailing list
- OzLabs Homepage - A group of Australian Open Source hackers (which do PPC-related stuff)
- lists.ozlabs.org Mailing Lists - Various mailing lists hosted by OzLabs (including many PPC-related ones)
I'm not sure if the Main_Page#External_Links is the best place for them... it's getting quite big. But maybe that's not an issue.
- Should I just add the links above to Main_Page#External_Links?
- Should we introduce sub-sections in Main_Page#External_Links? Like "RCS/RE", "Mailing Lists" and "Other"
- Should we create a separate place (section on the main page or a separate page) for mailing lists?
- Should we create a separate place for "developer ressources", with a sub-section for dev-related mailing lists?
These are just some ideas... what do you all think?
Good idea. I would categorize the external links like Raptor related links, IBM related links, datasheets, porting guides, tuning guides, PowerPC assembly guides, PowerPC related forums, mailing lists, blogs etc.
