Subject: [jox-tech] Compilation of technical aspects
To: journal-tech oekonux.org
Here is a compilation of technical aspects. I'm doing this to explore
the felt current status of this and to move forward then. Please do
comment if you see things differently.
* Page layout
There were discussions about a proper layout of pages. AFAICS
technically there are enough features to work with but
is that these features have to be used by someone who is
make something nice from of it.
Since Mathieu was one of the main stakeholders here: It
helpful if you could make a sketch of a typical page
layout as you
imagine it. Just a plain picture - nothing fancy. This
could be a
start to move in the right direction.
Not sure how to make a picture so I will just say that I would prefer something quite minimal at this stage, a lot of white, maybe like a minimal first monday for the article pages. I indicated my preference for one or two skins but I'm not sure what's going on there?
Re the front page, I think it would look nicer without side-columns. I placed a logo on the site which could be extended around the title?
* Site structure
Here AFAICS the `respective mail`_ from Mathieu and the
following thread defines what is wanted. I'll try a
summary on this.
.. _respective mail:
* Notifications from the site
The problem of too many / too few notifications from the
to be solved for the moment. May need fine-tuning in the
* Mailing lists in Plone
The mailing lists should be integrated into Plone
including a search
facility. This is a general topic I'll have to deal with
Oekonux site anyway.
* Details about sumissions and review collaboration
There were debates about how to exactly do the
reviews. This included organizational aspects as well as
technical aspects. Unless the organizational aspects are
clarified there is
little that can be done technically.
Yes, this should be discussed on the main journal list.
Anything I forgot?
Can't think of anything.
If you want to reply to any aspect *please* change the subject
various topics can be located in the archive easily.
