      Description

      jboss.org/tools have started to have issues scaling on several fronts.

      1) no clear path to what we want users to download (too many upfront choices)
      2) we are missing info about what jbosstools actually does
      3) updating it requires using magnolia (limited access, no option for easy review or experimenting without pushing fully live)
      4) the content is generally getting very stale
      5) it is not easy to blog via community.jboss.org - resulting in less content (#4)
      etc. etc.
      6) update for releases are a lot of copy/paste and manual updating. if we want to reorg that content it is alot of manual labor.

      We are looking into using awestruct as a way to solve a lot of the technical/practical issues. Other projects like wildfly.org, arquillian.org, aerogear.org, infinispan.org have used that and its improved their publishing process and the content.

      https://github.com/xcoulon/jbosstools-website has a current experimental push of the progress.
