Nobody reads the frontpage, okay maybe the first time you visit it. But then it is only of rare use. Most bugtrackers have nice dashboards on the front. The current one is a mixture of an about-help-quickstart page.

good point really - I'm thinking an IF which shows the current prose only when there are no Items?

-- TWiki:Main.SvenDowideit - 30 May 2008

Here are some things that could be placed on the frontpage to make it more of a dashboard:

  • My reports
  • Bugs waiting for me
  • Critical bugs
  • Buggiest components
  • Hot bugs
  • Recent changes
  • Top contributors
  • Top bug zappers

-- TWiki:Main.MichaelDaum - 30 May 2008

I can imagine that data over time can add value over link lists. For instance the length of outstanding items, the lines of submit and fix rates. Also changing the time window for each "top" lists.
