Re: Finding Lubuntu-related information

Hi, list.

I always have trouble finding some vital information regarding Lubuntu. Maybe it's just me, but it takes definitely more than a couple of mouseclicks to find out, e.g., the status of latest testing iso, its version, release date, download location, etc. Also, I've seen a link to IRC logs somewhere, but cannot find it again, and googling for "lubuntu irc log" does not show the required item on the first page, you really have to know that there's one site for publishing logs for all ubuntu-related channels, and search for _ubuntu_ irc logs, then navigate to the selected date and channel manually...

IMHO such "small navigation problems" may cause newcomers to not actively join the team. It may even happen that a would-be tester not do any actual good just because he/she does not find the latest beta! I've just updated https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/Testing with minimal info regarding beta2, however I believe it can be further elaborated. And probably beta1-related part should be removed. Huh, and probably the news section of lubuntu.net <http://lubuntu.net> can also be updated with beta2 info.

I'm not really good at writing human-readable texts, and I just don't have any more time at the moment. Is anyone willing to add more updates to lubuntu sites?


PS Are the command to md5sum the CD and the checksum on https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/Testing <https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/Testing> correct for beta2? Please double-check.

Mikhail, just so you know, me and Phillw are working (As much as we have time to anyway...) on getting all the Help Documentation related to Lubuntu over on https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Lubuntu/DocumentationHelp
