ok. It seems to me we have several groups working in this area, and it
might be a good idea to coordinate.

Several groups have requested setting up a
site for fudcons. Currently all
information and registration is handled in the wiki, but this is
sometimes daunting to some people to sign up on, and doesn't look as
professional as perhaps we would like to point media and such to.
Quite precisely stated. Its better to show a website to media and sponsors.
A wiki is not so impressive.
I'd like to propose as a short term goal, we setup the above virtual
host, create a landing/front page that explains what fudcons are and
such, and then create subpages for upcoming fudcons with general info
and other static content. I think we could do this in the existing
websites team along with interested folks joining the websites team to
work on their pages. This would all be static content.
-> nice page that explains fudcons.
-> nice looking page for
-> nice page for this fudcon
That's that way even I think it should be. Static pages to be made live
immediately, while we configure a a dynamic website for FUDCon
and make it live when its done.
Depending on the status of the events functions in insight, we might
want to just leave things as above until thats ready. If it is going to
take a while to get that in a usable state, we might look at adding
some dynamic functions to the above sites (registration?). I don't know
the status of this or if it will be place in time for the upcoming
I think COD  is the way to go as I have described in my earlier mail .
COD is Drupal based and so is Insight . It makes sense to me.
Even longer term:
Switch over to the events management setup instead of the static sites
and use that to manage the fudcons (and possibly other events too).
Stop using the wiki to manage these as well.
Thoughts? Comments? Additional things we need to solve that I missed?
Let us host the static pages immediately. We need hosting space for the same.
