It has been several weeks since we finalized the new www.mozilla.org design and I wanted to post an update on things. There are several different pieces we’ve been putting together to prepare for the relaunch.
We’re also moving from CVS to SVN to put the site on a modern repository and to help us work with more people (for instance, the l10n community uses SVN to localize web content and we are interested in working more closely with them).
Out of date pages are being archived to make the transition to the new repository (and the move to a new PHP-based templating system) easier. We’ve trimmed the site down from roughly 24,000 files to just under 14,000 files so far.
As we move forward with transitioning files to the staging server, we’ll need some help to make sure pages are displaying correctly. We’ll post more information about that soon. Thanks again to everyone who has commented and contributed so far.
