About ITt collaboration tasks

Hi, nobody had cleaned http://wiki.maemo.org/Task:ITt_Collaboration
during the 100Days so I did it now.

Yesterday in the maemo.org sprint planning meeting Henri committed to 3
tasks, although I haven't found anything about the third one.

(10:14:25 PM) bergie: * ITT karma counting
(10:14:29 PM) bergie: * ITT app catalog feeds
(10:14:36 PM) bergie: * Showing ITT important topics on site

I have left it tentatively out of the sprint since we know by now that
putting undefined tasks in sprints results in not-DONE in the 99% of cases.

There is plenty of more stuff in the discussion page that needs to be
worked out to extract concrete tasks to be committed in following
sprints: http://wiki.maemo.org/Talk:Task:ITt_Collaboration

ITt lovers, feel welcome to put some time in there.

Re: maemo.org redesign

Sorry, I 've lost part of this thread, and perhaps some of my question
have been answered before:
- Is there any wiki where all the mockups are being collected?
- Is there any interest in create different templates for desktop and
mobile (not only n8x0) users of maemo.org?

Thanks,

Not yet.

No. There will be one layout that works on all platforms. :)

While mobile designs are sometimes appropriate, it's usually for sites  
that are too heavy anyway, or are targeting severely handicapped  
cellphone "browsers". Our default setup will be light and agile enough  
to work fine in any halfway-decent browser, and anything else isn't  
really in our target audience anyway.

I've been collecting them in

One of the inflexible design goals of any web redesign is "works well in
the N8x0 tablets". This may cater to other mobile devices, and perhaps
it won't on some - if we can make it light enough to work on a 600x400
or smaller screen, great. But it's not a hard requirement and the form
factors I'll be looking at are desktop & tablet.

Cheers,
Dave.

Problems Getting a maemo.org Login

Apologies if this is inappropriate to the list, I couldn't find an obvious
place to report the problem...

I've been trying to create an account on maemo.org. It successfully created
an account on garage. Logging in to maemo.org fails and suggests that I try
again in a "few minutes" if the account has just been created on garage.
That was 12 hours ago. I've recently tried again with a second account with
the same result.

Thanks,
Phil

Re: Problems Getting a maemo.org Login

Hi,

There seemed to be a configuration problem introduced by the move to new
servers.

Can you try if it works for you now?

What about a lofi version for tablets? More work I realise, but would free
up the creative process for the main site perhaps.

Additional layouts just mean one layout doesn't get enough attention,  
and functionality is missing from one or both. The tablets are  
perfectly capable of handling complex websites, so all we have to do  
is keep the design reasonable (i.e., don't fill it with js and Flash  
applets, don't overload on images, etc.) and everything will be just  
fine.

To be honest, this looks like a good About page, but it looks like too
static for the home. It looks like useful for first timers but visiting
it time after time might bore people soon.

I'm surprised about the total lack of feedback about my mockup snif snif.

And do you really think that we want to pull all the great stuff out of
maemo.org? maemo.nokia.com and Forum Nokia must add and not take. Add
all the stuff maemo.org is not providing alone and a competitive
software platform needs nowadays.
