Sure, but the various informal Fedora sites can use whatever they
of course. But Thomas was talking about it for the primary site.
Why cannot Thomas et al use whatever they want and get news from us
Just to clarify my position:
I think php is generally dangerous.
I think drupal is provenly unsafe.
I don't think we have the necessary rigor in place yet to support the
infrastructure we want on the fedoraproject.org
I think your sysadmins at red hat agree about php in large part b/c of
the pain that is updating fedora.redhat.com
I think we can do two things to make this get better:
1. start by targeting a specific subset of functionality we need and
either finding it or writing it.
2. work on using some of the templating systems that already exist for
rendering the website.
3. upgrade the current site onto the new hardware so we can begin
playing with options.
The network pieces that I needed in order to move the new
hardware to the correct place are coming to pass this
wednesday. (We're moving buildsys.fedoraproject.org
Once that happens the new system will be setup and running.
The things I intend to do on the new system:
1. setup moinmoin 1.3.5 - including the docbook renderable pages:
we've been kept from doing that b/c fedoraproject.org
rhel3(ish) and the version of python was not new enough.
2. setup planet-plus for the feed aggregators so we can make our planet
interface a little bit cooler.
I'm also going to setup another, test box to let people start working on
cgis and web interfaces. This will be a box we can blow up at a moments
notice so the point here is only to let people work together on things.
A lot of this stuff has been waiting on things to happen since my job
changed at duke.
I'll be grabbing account info and ssh keys from the fedora accounts
system so hopefully anyone who wants to test things out there will be
