Review Wiki Howtos (SDB Portals) for accuracy

The student should test 10 pages on SDB Namespace ( that is the address on the page is something like http://en.opensuse.org/SDB:XXXX )on an openSUSE 12.1 machine. After testing the student should document all the results in the wiki as per the wiki guidelines. This task can be reopened ( by a different student who has not done this before ) . In the process, the student gets to test new applications, and gets to learn simple howtos that are needed regularly

Propose improvements to openSUSE main page to improve navigation and usability

During the "What we need to improve session" at OSC11 the navigation of the web site was raised as a point that needs work. This task involves research of other distribution web sites, see what works and what doesn't. Compare with the existing site and provide a basic proposal of a design for the openSUSE page.

Update GNOME wiki pages

Our Portal:GNOME wiki pages currently link to a lot of obsolete and irrelevant information, and currently omits much information about the new features and capabilities of GNOME 3.x. The student will either use openSUSE 12.1 to produce documentation covering new features in GNOME 3.2 or openSUSE 11.4 and 11.3 to identify documentation that is no longer relevant and either update it or suggest its removal.

This task can be reopened ( by a different student who has not done this before )

Update osc collab documentation

osc collab is a plugin for osc that helps people deal with their packages. It is documented on the wiki (openSUSE:Osc_Collab) but some features have been added, and some removed since the documentation was last updated. The student will look at the plugin and update the documentation, especially documenting the workflows that "osc collab" enables.

Write documentation on how to add upstream metadata to osc collab

osc collab is a plugin for osc that helps people deal with their packages. It can help track upstream releases if some metadata is known first. However, the process of adding this metadata is not well-documented.

The student will write such documentation, with examples, based on inline documentation in the collab tool.
