Obviously, you have been a one-person show, which explains much of this.
So, I'm going to pledge my efforts to find you more resources, probably
from within Red Hat. They can work in Python, put up a Python-based
CMS, add functionality to Moin Moin, and support whatever packages into
FE that we need.
If I can do that, can you, Seth, as the fp.o Chief SA, and to
else on this list, make this pledge: to make these additional functions
a high priority? Provide status updates on when they can be completed?
Give us some chances to work with beta versions? Etc.
Yes. And as we did with the buildsystem systems those people who are
willing to be security-minded and consistent with their application of
that should and will have access to all aspects of the system.
Here is a quick list:
* Two-way editing of XML in CVS using the Wiki.
* CMS back-end to allow us to have:
- More writers and editors of content using a workflow that forces
approval before content can be posted.
- More Web-based functionality to attract contributors, without
compromising on the extreme value of having all in XML
* The ability to do more automagic with aggregation and building of
content on the fly (RSS feeding into XML templates, or whatever)
I was contacted by the lead of the django project (djangoproject.com
a result of my rant in my blog. He's a fedora user and he says he's
interested in helping out. Django is one of the python web toolkits that
is rapidly advancing up the stack of things. I responded to him to join
this list and let's start figuring out what to implement.
