Since releasing Foundation we've gotten a lot of great feedback from contributors around the world. The great part of working in the open-source world is the fact that the community can be such a big part of how something changes and grows over time. We started Foundation 3 with certain assumptions about how the repo should be organized or how we include certain files. Over the past couple months, we've realized that we had lots of room to optimize the repository in way that would contribute to the happiness of our contributors.
Previously, cloning the Foundation repository would've resulted in a bloated root folder with many unneeded files, including the entire marketing site. This ultimately led to confusion for people that weren't working on Foundation from within ZURB. We had our reasons for initially keeping the marketing site within the same repo (we used docs to test locally). But we wanted other people to be able to contribute without this unnecessary headache. We wanted the files that get cloned to be organized, straightforward and require as little dependencies as possible (other than the ones that are needed for Foundation to work).
Today, marks the first day of a new era for Foundation contributors! We've successfully split out the marketing site into its own repo and included a new test/ directory that will make contributing and playing around with Foundation much easier. When you pull down the files you can dig into the test directory to find pages for every element within Foundation, we've even included a template file for anyone that feels like they want to try something new!
Now go visit the repository and clone the repo, you won't regret it! We want all the great minds of the web to be able to make Foundation everything it can be and having a cleaner codebase will definitely make this easier!
