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

Users coming from the world of free software

Who are they and what do they want?

  • New users who already have Scribus installed in they computer through the package manager and want to know what they can do
  • Potential users who want to know if Scribus fits their needs before installing
  • There are also those who may have heard about Scribus, may be quite unaccustomed to downloading software, but first want to get a sense of what Scribus is or is for. These people might be encouraged to view some examples of various sorts of Scribus-created projects.

What does Scribus want to show them

  • Overviews. Perhaps using a graphical approach to illustrate some overall concept (we are often dealing with those who are highly graphics-oriented).

Ideal paths trough the website

Alternative graphic artists

Who are they and what do they want?

  • Graphic artists who already use other libre graphics software
  • Graphic artists who are exploring the free software world for "ethical" reasons
