Working at W3C is an interesting experience. The Team is usually composed of 60 to 70 persons, with the possibility to edit mostly all parts of the Web site which is under cvs (thank you for giving the possibility of digging back old pages.). People from the staff have different levels of experience with regards to Web design and different perspectives.
- some people care only about information and content
- some will care about the structure
- some will have in addition a sensitivity for design
Everyone has write and read access on the content, the style, etc.
I would love to know from the Web designers/webmasters who are following this weblog, what are the techniques they used to keep the look and feel of a web site shared between multiple people with full access. Guidelines? Templates? Social Engineering? Checkers? “Use a CMS” is not the answer.
