- Evaluating transition of front page to a more collaborative platform. Few options:
- Mediawiki Visual editor for front page
- GitHub based static pages. Experiment stored here
- Current workflow:

- Appealing, well designed, "modern" looking
- Page we need to "proud of" .. it show case all the great work done in the backend.
- Well integrated with search engine (SEO). This is also coupled with user/developer documentation.
- Given new user guidance ?
- Nice example of a front page for a project: https://robomongo.org/
Transition to a new platform for user/developer documentation
- Integrated with C++ and python documentation generator
- Easily editable by reader with review process
- Embed images
- Embed python and c++ example
- Link to original documentation for Qt, VTK, ITK, SimpleITK, python
- Up/Down vote by user ?
- Collect feedback ?

- Reference API
- sphinx + readthedocs:
- sphinx + readthedocs + doxygen:

- FAQ: dedicated github repo as done here: https://github.com/ipfs/faq ? Benefits:
- search is potentially easier
- easy to insert images and format content
- users can vote on FAQ entries
- labels can be added to categorize entries
- github API can be used (I am assuming!) to pull this and render a web-page, after the FAQ entry has been worked on and finalized by the community
