Let me try and tackle these one at a time below:
1 -- What is "the new brochure site"??
It's a separate design for one or some pages which is presented to
users who visit inkscape.org
, it's design is focused on delivering the
download and inviting people to join the community. The main difference
is that it's not going to include much of the information currently on
our front page and is going to focus on new users.
It'll be on our current website and won't replace any other part of it.
I can't find the issue where it was being tracked (maybe Ryan will be
brave enough to post it once it's ready to review fully)
2 -- When you say it would be better if people who do this
involved in other parts of the project, do you mean that they need
to have plenty of time to devote only to this?
Yes. Content is a librarian thing, so it's very much a skill orthogonal
to a lot of our existing developers and contributors.
I think the best bits and pieces work that everyone could do is just to
keep your eyes open for potential new contributors and actively invite
them in and see if they'd be interested in contributing in these
Or maybe I could help by answering
questions for new "non-technical" helpers, and getting them more
oriented to the project
That's a great way to help!
