The goals were revised and it was decided that I first put up a
standalone demo where we can get enough feedback to make Beacon usable
and then concentrate on integrating it in Zikula and Publican.
The demo is up at http://publictest1.fedoraproject.org/beacon/php/beacon.php
The login page requires the user's FAS account details.
It would be really nice if you could take some time to test it out and
give some feedback.
>>> Beacon is still in development so no bug has been filed for packaging.
>>> Probably should make one so we don't forget about it.
>> Huh, I was sure that filing a package for review was early in the
>> process, but I don't see an obvious request filed.
I know this has been delayed quite a bit as I was having some trouble
with packaging it. Its almost done and I will submit the standalone
package for review by tonight.
> I'm not aware of any package for review as I don't think the software
> has been completed.
>>> Satya: Can you give the list an update and progress report on Beacon, please?
>> This is from last week to f-docs-l:
> Yeah, I'm hoping to have an update of this for tonight's meeting.
I tried to join the meeting today morning but I had some trouble
connecting with VoIP. I will mail in a detailed report once I am done
packaging. The demo is up so anyone can try it and give me some

The infra team sponsored me for sysadmin-test and I have been able to
set up the demo.
