Revision as of 07:35, 8 April 2010


This is where the discussion of business vision, scope, and user stories will converge into an outline of the website redesign.

proposal by a.l.e

  • multilingual (en, de, fr, nl, es, it, pt, ...); how to manage the workflow?
  • as little content as possible (the real content should be in wiki.scribus.net and docs.scribus.net)

Targeted users

I have identified five typologies of users which should be targeted by the scribus website:

  • End users coming from the world of free software
  • Alternative graphic artists
  • Companies and public agencies looking for a cheaper solution
  • Potential and current contributors
  • Potential developers

Navigation paths

In section I define the path each type of user is expected to follow when navigating the scribus website.
