I do believe that the official website is by far the biggest
channel of promoting FreeBSD that we currently have, and as such,
I believe that any discussion about replacing, improving or in
any other way change it clearly qualifies as FreeBSD advocacy
And, if I understood it correctly, he was not requesting an
immediate change to the webpage. He stepped up and announced a
*will* to change it, and was asking for feedback and thoughts.
When the community, ie advocacy@, approves of his work and agrees
on a actual website change, then it would be time to involve the
webmasters (they are of course welcome to join the discussion
earlier if they so wish).
I have been subscribed to this list for a long time, and I cant
recall website design as a subject being discussed even once. The
design of freebsd.org on the other hand frequently comes up, but
I consider that to be as advocacy related as anything else
I can see that we simply disagree here, but the fact that this
discussion pops up every other month clearly shows that there are
a lot of people that wants something to happen. Seeing people
chasing them off the list everytime is something *I* find tedious.
