On the wiki, you can have multiple skins, and I've been thinking about
using different skins for different audiences.
I'm interested in hearing if you think there should be
* one skin for casual visitors and one for developers who are deeply
intimate with the Chandler project (e.g. OSAF employees and hard-code
* only one skin, the "casual" one, or
* only one skin, the "intimates" one.
I'm envisioning that, for example, each skin would have a sidebar, and
the sidebar would be very similar for the two skins, but the "casual"
skin's sidebar would route users through a wiki page that gave a bit of
an introduction; the "intimates" skin would bypass the intro. For
example, casual users would see a link to Chandler.ReportingBugs, while
people who set their preferences to use the "intimates" skin would have
a link straight to Bugzilla.
(Please note that I'm not interested *today* in figuring out the visual
design or details of the interaction design, just which flavors of skins
we should have.)
