I like the great work too. Atm as I said often, I don’t have much time to
begin. My first draft was the page which is online at netbeans.apache.org. I
will dive into all of the stuff later, when I see smth that I can/will fix. But
for the Moment, great work. I will discuss with you too but not implementing.
Maybe we can merge some parts of my page to the new draft of you. To Show the
Features of NetBeans.

Betreff: Re: A NetBeans website proposal
The only important and required change needed AFAICT concerns the
download page .
There is a dedicated page with the ASF requirements for that at .
What needs to be added is, besides links to the distributions itself,
also links to the KEYS, sigs, hashes files, and a reminder for users to
check sums and signatures.
Just follow the instructions at  to get  aligned, and I think this
looks good to 'go live'!
