We used Drupal COD for fudcon.in and I can testify that it is a pain
to set up and maintain. What's worse is upgrading it and that's
important since we'd want to build a system that we maintain for some
Thanks for this input. This was a point shared in the workshop as
well. I set up a test bed of COD earlier and even though I have some
Drupal experience, it was neither easy nor intuitive to set up or
maintain a small test event site.
It would really be great if this was thought about and eventually
hosted as a generic event management system for FUDCon and Flock than
just "software for Flock". The difference between Flock and FUDCon
seems mostly to be scale and focus and neither of those factors have
anything to do with the event management software. If it is just the
matter of getting input from current and past FUDCon organizers then
I'm sure we can solve that.
Also this was not clear in my original post -- we agreed in the
workshop that it would be ideal to have a system that functions for
all Fedora premier events -- both Flock and FUDCon.
