XWiki Schedule Update
By Jimgris-Oracle on Sep 01, 2009
I updated Phase 2 of the website transition schedule pushing back by a few weeks the date for the move to XWiki at hub.opensolaris.org. It's not a big change given the length of the project, but we'll need to do more testing since we have to do some additional work to update the roles in Community Groups to remove any link to the governance roles in the Constitution -- a change specifically to accommodate the OGB. There have been long threads on this issue on ogb-discuss and website-discuss, but only a small number of community members are involved. The latest is here. We made this implementation decision after Derek, Bonnie, and I participated on an OGB conference call last week. Initially, I disagreed with the decision but then came to accept it because I think it will actually make it easier for community members to get work done faster, reduce some of our bureaucracy, and choose to not be involved in governance (which I'd certainly support). We have not set a new date for the final move yet. That will come in a week or two.
