Re: [libreoffice-website] [SC] Decision about CMS

I just want to reiterate the points made above are basically what I've been
trying to explain. Silverstripe is really a dead end, it isn't even the
same class as Drupal and the only way you would know that is to spend some
time with it Drupal, or to have a live demo done by an experienced user.

I am willing to donate services to this project that include project
management for the site development and mentoring individuals on commercial
production best practices in Drupal development. I would do this in
exchange for some credit for my little business thoughtfarmproductions but I
don't need any money for this.

You are really going to need someone with my level of experience to quickly
get a nice site up and running.

If you just want me to answer questions or mouth off on the discussion board
then I'll do that for nothing LOL.

Hi,


Yes, you have strong arguments for taking more time to consider the use
of appropriate CMS. However, it sounds like the SC would like to have
the decision made by Friday and I expect that the SC has had some "ears"
listening on our conversations on this thread.

Just wanted to say, that at least "half an ear" is listening :)

and here is another "half an ear" ;)

I could not follow the full discussion - but for the moment I'd like
to suggest that we should separate two things:

1st) we need something to present information to our users and can be
setup
in rather short time, does not cost to much time regarding maintenance
and
provides an rather easy way to edit content.
People are currently asking for better structure and more information
at the website - I'd love to see people without technical skills on
scm, plain html and so on to provide such content.

Just to point that we need to handle i18n and l10n easily also, this
is important to think this multilanguage way till the beginning.

2nd) we would need a solution to cover much more infrastructure then
"just the website". As some of you already pointed out, we might need
to host own template site, extension site (and please let's have some
ways to access this from within the Application, just like mozilla
apps do this), and whatever you might dream of.
But this is a real long-term solution and no urgent requirement for the
next two months.


Yes, and thanks a lot all for you work and very valuable contributions
on this CMS topic, this is not an easy one.

Kind regards
Sophie

Thanks for the note Keith. Could you please bottom post? This will make it easier for the SC membership to follow the train of thought. They monitor the chatter on the mailist. Thanks.

Hi Keith. In all fairness, the decision process should make sure that everyone's contribution is collected and heard. The Silverstripe option has been accepted by our group as a contender along with Drupal. Let's complete the arguments to the list that I posted as a summary of the discussions, add any missing arguments that have been discussed and presented in our thread and agree to vote (if it comes to this) on Friday. It may come to a point where one package's overwhelming virtues may make it the "de facto" choice and that there would be no need to vote on Friday.

Marc
