Mozilla websites - purposes and strategies

There was a scripting error on this page. While it is being addressed by site editors, you can view partial content below.

(excerpted from an email discussion with Sheppy regarding the purpose of the various Mozilla sites)

Are the following statements correct?

Q: - www.mozilla.org is gradually being retired as a developer documentation site and things are being gradually ported to
developer.mozilla.org? (I noticed a TODO list somewhere to this effect)

A: www.mozilla.org is the project site; its intention is to be where information about the project is for casual interest, more than anything, I think.  All developer docs are moving to developer.mozilla.org.

Q: www.mozilla.org will be the user documentation site? (what about mozillazine?)

A: I'm not sure where user docs are; I think these are more at

support.mozilla.org

.

 

Q: wiki.mozilla.org is the project management site - there probably shouldn't be any documentation here, just links?

A: Correct.  Docs there would be design documents, and plans.  Actual docs for stuff that's shipping (which includes prerelease builds, once the feature is more or less in place) go on developer.mozilla.org.

Q: It seems that www.mozilla.org is used for "core" docs (instructions for build, localization, etc). Is this as desired, or will these be
moved to developer.mozilla.org? Or are they old and obsolete?

A: Any of these docs that are still on

www.mozilla.org

are either going to be moved or are obsolete.  This is a long ongoing process. :)
