Description Rahul Sundaram 2005-11-10 11:00:51 UTC
Description of problem:

The way we format tables in  fedoraproject.org/wiki for the various project
schedules and other places is not very appealing

Expected results:

something like the tasklist in the
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Xorg/Modularization would be good

I've updated tables throughout the wiki with a little more style.  Have a look
around and see if you think they need any further changes.

Keep in mind that we can't make the tables to complex to create, or people
simply won't follow any guidelines.

LUG page - http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/LUG - could use some spices. :)

Comment 3 Patrick Barnes 2005-11-12 03:03:31 UTC
I've added some spice to the LUG page, but I fear it might be a little too spicy
now.  I'm really concerned about overcomplicating the tables.  Since the LUG
page will be edited by new users, it, like many others, needs to be simple
enough to copy, edit and correct even for someone who isn't familiar with wiki

Comment 4 Patrick Barnes 2005-11-18 16:37:28 UTC
In the future, we might want to look at either automating table formatting
somehow (would probably require patching MoinMoin) or documenting a set of
table-formatting guidelines.  For now, we have decent-looking tables.

I'm going to go ahead and close this bug as CURRENTRELEASE.  Further discussion
of this and other wiki formatting concerns can be taken to
fedora-websites-list@redhat.com.  Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Tickets move to docs-request so the fedora-websites component can be removed per request from Ricky.
