Subject: New website live! Feedback welcome
The new oVirt website is now live!
We have made some changes to the infrastructure (the website is now
running on MediaWiki: http://www.mediawiki.org
on Red Hat's Platform
a Service offering OpenShift: https://openshift.redhat.com
) and also
the look and feel. There is a new theme, designed and laid out by
Garrett Lesage, some new content to discover, and best of all, since
entire website is now a wiki, it will be much easier to maintain over
We have been careful to ensure that all of the old website links
redirect to appropriate pages on the new site. If you find any dead
links, or redirects which do not make sense, please let us know! And
the site has had limited exposure up to this point, we are happy to
your feedback on things you like, and things we can improve.
Thank you all for your support, assistance and understanding

Wicked awesome ;)
Looks so much better now.
There are a few things I'm missing which may further improve the site;
- In the community page, a section called (something in the spirit of) "Getting
which routes the users to the irc and users' list is much needed. It can even be one
the menu items in the main tool-bar.
- The documentation page rightfully embeds 2 youtube clips. I think we can add a section
for the youtube ovirt area, as these clips are documenting some of our features. We got
feedbacks that the clips are very helpful for understanding some of the concepts.
- Going forward a forum would be nice, but need to see how it integrates with the lists.
Possibly limit it to users forum?
