Description of problem:
We have a large variety of documentation guides serving a wide range of different users. It may be difficult for users arriving at docs.fp.o to know where to start, especially if they are new to Fedora/Linux and are unfamiliar with some of the technical terms.
A note on the landing page suggesting a sensible starting point for new users could help alleviate this problem. Eg:
"New to Fedora? You can try Fedora on your PC without touching your existing installation by following the Live Image Guide."
The end of the Live Image guide helpfully points users to the Installation guide if they want to install :)
Removing myself for these bug components as I'm either no longer involved in that aspect of the project, or no longer care to watch this particular bug. Sorry if you are caught in a maelstrom of bug changes as a result!
created branch while I work on draft for the site, pushing copy of master to that branch and changes I made
There's some work being done that includes the landing page. Chris, are you still interested in making changes there?
I am interested if you can let me know what needs to be done in better detail. I never really got a clear picture of what needed to change with this ticket. I know you guys changed the docs backend so just let me know what needs changed.
I recall the intent was to direct users to specific guides for common questions, blurbs like:
"Installing Fedora for the first time? Start with the Installation Guide"
..and some selective trimming of the existing content if it causes uncomfortable page overflow. I hope that's clear enough; some initiative will be required.
