Could addons be clearly signposted on the main page?

Could first-time users be taken to the addons page, so they know

Could addons be clearly posted in the menus?

Could the frequency of downloading addons be counted and a pack

the download?

I have some good news for you. The website team is already tackling
this with the Drupal implementation.

In case you are not aware the current site at is
earmarked for an upgrade (as per the steering committee advice).
The website team has been busy building the site over at a temporary

Great work!

While I do thank Michael for its great work I believe there's a slight
misunderstanding here: Michael's own exploratory work might be used one
day for the LibreOffice website, but it is at this stage not considered
for an "upgrade".

Far from being 'my' exploration work, the majority of the website team has
contributed towards this project after the Steering Committee discussion and
the outcome of which, I am paraphrasing, to implement the Silverstripe CMS
on with a view to go with Drupal long term.

The progress made by many of the contributing members has been fantastic,
and although I have been the most vocal of the website development team
regarding the implementation of a community building and tooling site there
are many other people who have done fantastic work.

I will be applying to the Steering Committee soon to set a target date for
implementation in order to focus the website team on a tangible goal.

There does seem to be a little bit of misinformation out there regarding
this SC decision, but it is quite clear if you listen to the decision
outcome statement on the recording of the SC meeting.

I am sure this will be clarified when the website team applies for a further
decision on implementation.
