Re: Temporary FI platform

Well, that was quick. Ignore my last email - seems like I misspoke.

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?

After a conversation in #fedora-websites with ricky and poelcat, the answer to "can we make a zikula-based FI go live for F12?" now seems like this:

* we aren't sure...
* but there actually aren't any good reasons why it wouldn't work,
* so we should try it until we hit an actual blocker.

The legal things I thought were blocking zikula for us were actually blocking zikula for docs, *not* marketing. All 3 packages we need for an FI zikula instance (zikula, zikula-module-crpTag, and zikula-module-News) are already packaged and legal-happy. And zikula is extremely easy to set up. I just followed https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_to_set_up_a_Zikula_sandbox, and in 14 minutes I went from "which packages should I download?" to "logged into working local instance with both modules installed."

So the next step is to get a test instance up. I'm working on this right now and it should be pretty quick (I expect to have it up and running by our Tuesday meeting, given that once I get through all the "join Infrastructure!" stuff it should take no more than 14 minutes for me to do this all again). The ticket is https://fedorahosted.org/marketing-team/ticket/14 - again, I've got it, but if someone gets to it faster than I do (probably super-late tonight; if not, Monday) I have no objections to that. :)

After it's up, we're going to need a few testers to learn how to use Zikula and try putting up a few articles (using old content from F11 as dummy text) to see how the workflow goes. Robyn, if you'd like to run forward with this once the test instance is set up, that would be immensely awesome. I expect people to get confused the first time through, so the real goal of the first test run will be to document our confusion so we can figure out how to fix it. :)

(then again, it was way easier than I expected to install, so maybe it'll be easy to learn as well! I couldn't figure it out, but I was only able to spend 5 minutes trying, and didn't look for tutorials or anything.)
