After looking at how to make the Firefox Project page more useful to developers and testers, I wanted to take a pass at updating the Minefield Start Page to see if there were some ways to improve that too.
This draft mockup does a few things:
- Moves the information about testing Minefield higher up on the page so more is above the fold
- Adds a prominent link for people to find out how to get involved with Mozilla beyond testing
- Removes the embedded Hendrix form and uses that space for more information about the QA community and QA tools
Any feedback on this is welcome. I’ll post this to the relevant newsgroups too soon for discussion.
Update: Based on feedback I’ve made some more tweaks. Here’s the newest mockup.
- There is now a Bugzilla feed showing the top 5 most wanted Minefield bugs (not sure if this list exists or not but some sort of Bugzilla feed could go here)
- Added information about localized nightlies and how to get started with the localization community
- Streamlined the text to help keep things readable (it’s crowded but there’s a lot of useful information to provide)
