Date: Mon, 23 Apr 2012 21:01:16 -0400 From: Rich Felker <dalias@...ifal.cx> To: musl@...ts.openwall.com Subject: Request for comments: website updates? I know a lot of stuff in the musl website is a bit outdated, lacking in details, etc. and I'd appreciate some ideas to get it more useful/informative between now and the 0.9 release. Website is a GREAT bikeshed so come on everybody, have at it.. ;-) Here's some random brainstorming... New main section layout? About | How to use | Get musl | ... About: What musl is, why one should be interested in using it. This is the place to hype musl's strengths like size, performance, ease of deployment, lack of corner-case/oom failures, ultra-robust POSIX threads and timers, etc. How to use: 3 ways to use musl; again appealing to wide audience - with wrapper to make easy-to-deploy static linked or minimally dynamic-linked programs, - with a musl-based distro like sabotage (or in the future, a more mainstream distro like gentoo with a musl option) - as the basis for building your own system from scratch Get musl: Not just musl release/git download links; also links to sabotage and other dists, and perhaps in the future some binaries for folks who are lazy and not very paranoid. A musl-based rescue disk might be interesting here too. Community page needs major updates... Docs page is rather empty... Possibly add a news page in oldschool weblog (pre-blog) format (flat html with really old stuff moved to a separate page, no commenting, updates on what's going on in development, ...) If I do this I'm not sure how much I should include on it; probably only stuff directly related to musl development, and keep the more random stuff on the separate upcoming ewontfix.com blog... Rich
