How do we get it.
Lets us assume, for now, XSM is our CMS of choice. It will handle the
static pages for all 'normal pages'. It will handle the news page
(which, will hopefully be able to be displayed on both the home page
for 2-3 articles and in the news page, Handy?).
The FAQ will be XSM. If we want to hook up for the user to download
the faq to their system we can grab the .xml file XSM generates and
post process if needed (Handy, can we hook post processing scripts in
so after a page is written out, fire script?) and stick this into
specific spots in the webserver.
post processing is not currently available as a hook, but you can look
at mtime values on files. perhaps RSS might be useful here?
The main docs pages will be in XSM. The API docs will be generated
from CVS, with links from XSM. The other docs that are in CVS will
also be autogen'd on commit with links from XSM.
That make sense as a starting point?
Just thought of two more possible things for the site.
1- cvsweb. I know we have this running on Kevin's site now. So we can
either bring it in house, or just make cvsweb.enlightenment.org point to
his site. Kevin, opinions?
2- mailing list archives. Do we want the hassle of hosting these? sf
seems to be doing an OK job of it (not that I look much).
