Jason et. al.,
I would like to organise the site support and feedback activity into a
"support" project, grouping the relevant information together, making it
accessible and easy to find to anybody, and leveraging the support
efforts (not having to answer questions time and again).
It would be a regular project that is publicly accessible. The project
home page shall lead users through the following steps:
1. Read the FAQs (which we shall consolidate from the help list
2. A help at support.osgeo.org mailing list for questions and enhancement
requests. We shall suggest users to search the list archives before
asking their question.
3. Artifact types for defects and enhancement requests that have been
raised, clarified, and agreed upon on the mailing list. I will
populate it with the currently open requests (and include our CRM id
in there for easy reference).
In addition, I would like to add a tab "support" to the main menu (next
to the "home" tab) to advertise this site support mechanism.
Do you think this is a good idea? Do you have any feedback on the
approach? Is this the right place to make this proposal and get
agreement on it?
PS: Note that this is about site support and feedback. Projects will
(need to) support their software. We can mention this on the site
support project home page if needs be.
