GitHub is home to over 28 million developers working together to host and review code, manage projects, and build software together.
On #2544 we changed the homepage. For anonymous users a static homepage is fine. For signed-in users we need some sort of dynamic timeline or whatevs at /.

What about just redirecting the signed-in user to their own profile page?
@webmaven Yeah, that's an option. @ericmeltzer was in favor of that. @Changaco thought it was a hack and we should fix the root problem instead. @seanlinsley thought that we didn't want to lose what little discovery we do have in the "Jump to" form.
@whit537 , the "Jump to" form obviously needs to just go in the nav header on all pages (ie. where most sites put a search field). GitHub itself is a decent model, as is Twitter.
@webmaven Interested in working on that? :-)
(P.S. Proper search is #469.)
@whit537 on proper search, no.
On moving the "Jump to" form? Mmmmaybe?
I am, unfortunately, already overcommitted, but if by the time I have some extra spoons it hasn't been taken care of, I may jump in.
@webmaven Cool. Reach out here or #gittip on Freenode and we'll be happy to help you get started. Thanks! :-)
@whit537 OK. Fair warning, timeframe might be weeks or months.
