Improve the Rails Lighthouse overview page

Hello,

I have a suggestion to improve the Rails Lighthouse overview page. At
present the description is very large. You need to scroll to find the
tickets and more importantly the list of pages.

I think a shorter description along the lines of http://i48.tinypic.com/2z6a7lt.png
would be much better. All the information at present in the
description can be moved into pages, and they can be linked
appropriately. Either via a page or from the description. Also all the
pages will be listed below the ticket bins making them accessible at
one go.

Cheers,

I kinda like it. However, I would suggest putting more emphasis about
they have to get their hands dirty to help us fix the issue, and I
think it would be nice to add the link to "contributors guide", which
is this one: http://guides.rubyonrails.org/contributing_to_rails.html

I mean, that guide is very well written, and really saved myself when
I wrote my first patch :slight_smile:

Thanks,

Prem

I suggest that a direct link from the Rails github web page to the
Rails issue page at Lighthouse would make a useful addition. To open
a ticket starting from the Github site with the present arrangement
requires linking through to the 'weblog', thence to the Rails
'overview' and thence to 'bugs/patches'. That seems to me overly
baroque for what should be a straight forward action.

I like the idea to link the contributors guide, it's very thorough.

Actually the wiki on the Github Rails page has a direct link to
Lighthouse. But yes it's kind of hidden. Why isn't there a small
README with important links so you get them immediately on opening the
github page? I wouldn't mind writing one.

I can't change the project description, somebody with the permissions
will need to do it. I'm guessing core members have the rights?
