Re: Temporary FI platform

Are the same things that were blocking zikula for the docs team blocking
zikula for marketing?  Would it be that hard to get even an initial,
relatively blank zikula instance on servers that are not covered by the
Infrastructure change freeze and then work on polishing that?

Great question. It sounds like some of them are, at least legally:

http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/logistics/2009-August/000140.html (in response to http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/logistics/2009-August/000138.html)

Technically, though, it should not be that hard. This is what needs to be set up: http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/logistics/2009-August/000141.html (I don't think there's any real blocker on a test instance happening, just that nobody's stepped up to do it yet.)

Robyn, is this something you'd be willing to work on? If Infra can get a test instance installed, could you take some F11 marketing content (for instance, the stuff already written up at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/F11_Talking_Points) and take an hour or two to experiment with publishing those (copy-paste the content into blank articles) through the system to see what the interface/workflow/tags/feeds/etc. look like, to help give us a sense of how this setup might feel like to contribute news to and consume news from? (Or was it a different kind of help you wanted to offer?)

That should put us in good shape for a right-after-F12 zikula launch for FI, but doesn't solve the temporary "until that launches in, say, January, we need a place to put content and get feeds" problem which I was hoping to tackle by getting a quick-and-dirty wp install up and skinned so we can concentrate on content for F12 while further platform work progresses in the background. That's why I'm temporarily looking into the wordpress thing.

Does this make sense?
