Mostly, as per the 2022 structure of this site, we don’t have a lot of subcategories — Project Discussion is at the top level, and you can filter by tags inside that.
But for news and announcements, we’ve got Community Blog, Podcast, and now an Announce List mirror as subcategories. So that looks like this:
I think that this fails to make it very obvious that there’s actually _stuff in the top-level News & Announcements, not just thosse subcategories.
For now, I’ve made a small CSS change that makes it so the whole description is clickable and takes you to the overall category (which shows topics in both the top level and the sublevels).
I’m thinking of something different, though, based on a half-baked idea for Fedora announcement list workflow in general (the main announcement list plus the three other main announcement lists, devel-announce, contrib-announce, and test-announce). That idea is: we’ll actually originate all future announcement posts to those lists here, which provides a better editing, scheduling and moderation experience than the mailman moderation queue. Then, there’d be no reason for anything to actually be in the top-level category anyway, since all such messages would go to one of those four categories anyway.
What do you think (both about the bigger clickable area, and the idea in general)?
