Brainstorm: Modules page Redesign

One of Drupal's biggest asset is it's thousands of modules: you can do anything to everything. But these thousands of modules have their own share of problems which we all are aware of. During the usability study conducted at Minnesota in May this year, it was found that the new users had a hard time finding and installing a module. This is just another data point hinting at the problem.

In this brainstorming session, we will briefly talk about the problems with the modules page (for the new users and the existing users) and move towards sketching rough ideas as to how this interface could be redesigned. The intent is to keep the ball rolling, and come up with some viable and actionable steps to move this initiative forward.

We all have had our share of hurdles with the modules page. This the chance to make it change! So attend this BoF.
