Absolutely right and may be the root of next proposals for the website

It seems to be an evidence.

Understood!

Hi, 

My name is Franz Robert : FranzRobert Wiki will tell you more.
As I'm new, I apology for anything I will say or submit wich have
already been discussed and/or done.

I don't think it really matter to get another fp(x) or f(x)o domain
and/or server. It can be or not for the server. If it's a technical
choice for better bandwidth and CPU time, it could be a good choice. But
I don't think there is any good marketing reason.
Fedora website is our community signature on the Web and it as important
to have a good and strong signature as to have only one.
Fpo is this signature. As soon as "project" is in the name, Infinity is
in the idea. That's why a "fedora-Linux.xxx" sounds bad to me.
If we need any other physical support, like server, it must be a xxx.fpo
in a full transparency navigation and not ping pong between further
domain names. But it's not the priority.

Fact is that we want to make the front (Home, Main, Static - as you want
to call it) better with #1 goal to offer Fedora users and futur users,
media people and so on a Fedora's 2008 philosophy and spirit entry. We
want a real efficient signature: that's all.

I agree with the idea that we have to rebuild the home page(s) in a
different and much XXI's century way. I appreciate the weekly news
project.
Finally, the concept we are talking about is, first of all, to make a
proposal with an Alpha alternate home part for fpo to submit it to the
Fedora Board. This concept need a team of contributors from art,
websites and marketing group. This is not else than a development team.
If it's the idea, I'll join it with time and strong enthusiasm.

This Alpha should also have the advantage that we can all discuss around
a true visible and working (apart and not open to the public) system.
And when we agree this Alpha, we submit the project to the community
board.

So the discussion should now be: who and where.

Franz
