Introducing the New Product Community Site

Some of you may have seen Frank's post earlier today about distributions now being on drupal.org. The announcements about contributions to the community don't stop there. We are very proud to announce a brand new wiki-style product community site! Not only did we consolidate our OpenPublic community site, OpenPublic documentation site, and OpenPublish documentation site into one, we also added more training materials and information for your reference.

We are very proud to announce a brand new wiki-style product community site! Not only did we consolidate our OpenPublic community site, OpenPublic documentation site, and OpenPublish documentation site into one, we also added more training materials and information for your reference. Our new product community site provides documentation, training materials, and information on how to get involved in the communities around these distributions.

We’ve heard a lot of your suggestions and ideas around the product community sites and documentation, and we hope we’ve built something that meets those needs. In addition to the documentation I referenced above, the products areas of the new site contain the following:

  • Latest news about the product
  • Training such as Getting Started guides, training videos, and information on our upcoming training sessions
  • 3 latest blog posts related to product in Agile Approach blog
  • FAQs
  • Information on how to get more involved in working with our distributions
  • Download link to download our products from drupal.org

 Phase2 Product Community site

Additionally, we have two sections on the site that are not specific to OpenPublic and OpenPublish. Our Distribution Overview section contains documentation that applies to both OpenPublish and OpenPublic concepts and our New to Drupal section provides documentation and video resources for those community members who would like to learn Drupal basic concepts.

I can hear some of you asking, “But what about Open Atrium?” Because of the amount of discussion and issue resolution that occurs in the issue tracker on the current Open Atrium community site, we decided to keep the information housed on that site for the time being. So if you’re interested in what’s going on in the Open Atrium community, please visit the current Open Atrium community site!

Now’s the part where I ask you to help. Because our new site is a wiki, there’s a very easy way to get involved. You can add comments to our documentation and if you feel like there is information missing, you can add a new page to the documentation section. Even if you have an idea for what needs to be included but aren’t sure how to proceed, please leave a comment. We are always taking suggestions on what will help our community.

We look forward to seeing your comments and contributions on our new product community site!
