Hi, Quoting Ville Jyrkkä <vjyrkka@xxxxxxxxx>:
In my opinion having a test system won't hurt anybody if you are keen to do this. When there's a test system up, we can compare whether we want to move Plone or not.
This sounds like a good plan to my ear too. Let me know if you need some more info about functionality 'requirements' or something.

Of course If things are scaling up it could be better to change for a more advanced and easier to use / extend system like Plone 4 which I can arrange free hosting for and also supports LDAP etc and is better at the whole CMS thing overall (disclaimer: I am a Plone expert and foundation member) I am in Helsinki a few times a month including next Tuesday.

LDP is one of the main reasons for sudden burst in activity and amount of new members. The latest addition to LDP is that Helsinki has started a new node. Currently there are two nodes: Tampere and Helsinki. Plans to get one in Oulu are still under work. This is great! However, such success also means that our services (such as maintaining and developing LDP stuff) need more help. So far there has been only a few people working with different services and I have been one of them. Unfortunately, I have to concentrate on other stuff now and amount of contribution will drop dramatically. Therefore, I'm asking for new people to get involved in multiple areas, out of which LDP is probably the most important now. I have managed to setup current LDP management routines in Drupal and I admit that it's a mess. If there is any possibility that someone more experienced with Drupal would take over, I'd be more than happy to give some information about what has been done so far. If such person(s) could be found, it might be wise to meet in person and look through the current implementation (since it's a mess). Another thing that I cry help for is the Information Depot, which is intended to be a place to add links (with descriptions and other meta stuff) to presentation material (from our meetups and other events). Again, I started the process and created some elements for it, but due to limit on time available, I can't go forward with it. I know there are people who could assist MNFI community in this, please step forward :) /Jarkko -- --------------- Organizer (TMN, Tampere Meego Network) Local Device Program manager (LDP, Tampere) Email: jarkko dot moilanen at meegonetwork dot fi More info: http://meegonetwork.fi Discussions: irc.freenode.net#meego-fi <http://irc.freenode.net#meego-fi> http://meego.ajatukseni.net/
