Description

I was looking for a link to the parrot-users mailing list on the parrot.org site and couldn't find one. Either there is no such link, or it is buried deeply enough that it is not useful to casual visitors. Near as I can tell, this means the only way a person could know about parrot-users is if somebody told them about it.

A simple entry on  http://parrot.org/dev close to the parrot-dev item would work for the moment.

<li><a href="http://lists.parrot.org/pipermail/parrot-users/">Parrot Users</a>
 mailing list for people using Parrot in their own projects. Subscribe using the
 <a href="http://lists.parrot.org/mailman/listinfo/parrot-users">subscription
 form</a>.</li>

<li><a href="http://lists.parrot.org/pipermail/parrot-dev/">Parrot Dev</a>
 mailing list for people developing the Parrot platform. Subscribe using the
 <a href="http://lists.parrot.org/mailman/listinfo/parrot-dev">subscription
 form</a>.</li>

The wording is just a suggestion.

I changed the top level "Docs" link.

  • it now says "Users/Docs" instead of just Docs.
  • it goes to a page on parrot.org instead of just linking to docs.parrot.org
  • that page lists the website, the mailing list, and the irc channel.

Thanks for pointing this out!
