      Description

      First, to set some basic expectations - we do not currently have full localization support on the site, so while the content will be entirely in your languages, the headers, footers, and links back to the main site will remain in English (as all the content they are pointing to is in English anyway).

      If you haven't already, please take a look at the FX and Embedded pages for ideas about what we can do with the spaces - http://community.java.net/community/javafx and http://community.java.net/community/embedded.

      What Frank will be looking for from you to start with is a list of twitter handles, tags, and blogs to follow so we can automate delivery of new content. He'll also help you set up custom spaces where you can add news and community information to the page, and you can choose how much or how little you want to update.

      I'd also like to do an official proposal to the Java.net Community Leaders to establish these as official language-based communities on the site. At this point it's really a formality, but I think it's a good thing to do. If any of you object, please let me know. I promise this official designation does not require any more work from you! We have a mailing list that is fairly low traffic and we host a telephone meeting every other week or so for community news that I try to keep short. The meeting is not mandatory and when I can I try to record them and release them as an mp3 to the leads so they can catch up on their own time.

      Finally, if you have ideas for other people in your language area that you would like to invite to be involved, please do so. I'd love to see as much cross-cultural participation within these language groups as possible.

      Thank you all for your time and ideas!

        The current Community Pages primarily aggregate content from other sources (blog feeds, twitter, you tube, etc.), but do have "blocks" for content to be manually entered.

        The template for these pages is attached and includes the following sections/blocks:

        A1. Community Resources. Block to add any links to resources.
        Manual Edit through HTML edit (edit link under block)
        A2. Community Leaders. Block to list the community leaders.
        Manual Edit through HTML edit (edit link under block)

        B1. Key Projects. Block to list all public key projects on Kenai that have been noted as key projects.
        Auto, but some manual effort needed to flag a Kenai project in the community as a "Top" project (done by the community leaders for English site)
        B2. Newest Projects. Block to list the latest community projects from Kenai.
        Auto, but some manual effort needed to flag a Kenai project in your community (done by the community leaders for English site)
        B3. Forum Topics. Block to list the latest forum topics.
        Auto, site admin will create the reference to the forum if it exists

        C1. Community Overview. Block for manual entry of an introduction to the community.
        Manual edit through HTML edit (edit tab on top of page)
        C2. Community News & Announcements. Block for manual entry of news and announcements.
        Manual edit through CMS add/manage link in left column under "Community Leader Tools"
        C3. RSS Feeds. Block for all community RSS feeds that have been identified.
        Auto, site admin sets up the feeds that you have identified
        C4. Community Tweets. Block for all twitter hashtags or handles that have been identified.
        Auto, site admin sets up the twitter handles.hashtags you have identified
        C5. Community Videos. Block for manual entry of videos.
        Manual edit through CMS add/manage link in left column under "Community Leader Tools"

        As Sonya stated the first step is for you to send me the information for the feeds and tweets and anything else we can pull in via feeds (C3 and C4) and the translation of the community page that exists now (C1). I'll also need your java.net ID so we can give you the appropriate permissions on your Community Page.

        We can customize the template to fit your community localization needs and move around blocks, highlight them, delete them or add new blocks.

        Please contact me, Frank, with any questions regarding the template.

        STEP #1. Start with is a list of twitter handles (C4), RSS Blog Feeds (C3) to follow so we can automate delivery of new content. Also, need Community Overview (C1), Community Resource Links (A1) and a list of Commuity Leaders (A2) to get started.
