#248 closed task (fixed)

osgeo4w-setup needs a home page

Reported by: maphew Owned by: osgeo4w-dev@…
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: OSGeo4W Keywords: documentation


There needs to be a home page for osgeo4w-setup, or if there is one already it needs to be easier to find. For instance at the moment searching this trac for "osgeo4w-setup" yields a host of tickets for bugs & enhancements but no wiki page.

The failed task which prompted this ticket was to locate the latest version so I could try the new features.

I would suggest that we make the wiki our end-user oriented website for OSGeo4W once the new trac instance is setup. We can also migrate the developer/packager oriented stuff from into the trac instance at that point, but push it down into the wiki a bit with the user oriented stuff 'on top'. Currently is our nominal main page but it is also pretty hard to find.

Once we are "public" we should add an OSGeo4W link from the main page.

An alternative to making our main page would be to add a public web page at and keep trac as developer/packager oriented and for user wiki contributions but manage the "public face" of OSGeo4W on the osgeo drupal site.

... just a few thoughts.

Summary: osgeo4w-setup needs a home paeosgeo4w-setup needs a home page

I think I favour the last option, but would be happy with a trac-only setup.

If there is a split between public face and developer/packager info it would be good to have guidelines for when/how to migrate docs from one to the other. For instance right now there is little integration between user docs on the gdal trac and the main gdal website, which sometimes causes friction.

Not yet. I create a ticket for that though:
