[tei-council] TEI-C Website Development Window

Hi TEI-Council,

David Sewell and I have a slightly amorphous list of things that 
we think should be done to improve the TEI-C Website and its 
display in a number of browsers. We've set aside some periods of 
time (fitting around our work commitments and such) to have a 
development window in mid-May.  We would encourage members of the 
Council (and Board if someone wishes to forward this email there) 
to submit Bugs and Feature Requests in the 'TEI: Website 
Suggestions' category before Friday 13 May 2011. We hope that 
knowing that there will be some development time spent on this 
will encourage the submission of such bugs/feature requests.

We are not looking for any bugs or feature requests to be 
submitted to us directly, but would _prefer_ people use 
Sourceforge. The scope of such bugs and feature requests should 
be reasonable improvements to the display and/or functionality of 
any part of the website (including Guidelines). Unfortunately 
some of this is limited by the underlying content management 
system and we're not intending to change this during this 
development window.  We don't promise to implement all of the 
suggestions submitted and will prioritise them with an arcane 
algorithm of perceived difficulty of implementation vs benefit to 
the TEI community.  If anyone wants to help, let us know.

Although this email is public (because it is on a 
publicly-archived mailing list) we are consciously not informing 
TEI-L of this development window until much closer to the date 
when we will announce a drive for suggested improvements.  (This 
does not mean you can't encourage people to submit bugs/feature 
requests in this category...they are free of course to do so at 
any time.)
