What was the original goal of powering the blog with Roller?
- To have a blog, and
- To counter the misconception that NetBSD doesn't run Java well (or at all)...
- By demonstrating that NetBSD runs Java (and well)
How well have we met that goal?
- It's hardly obvious to passersby that the blog is Java-powered
- It's somewhat annoying to admin (and few of us know how)
Could we get more of the intended marketing benefit for less admin cost?
- Document loudly (e.g., on the wiki) how NetBSD supports Java
- Publish the blog with a CMS we already happily admin and use (ikiwiki)
Would anyone feel strongly opposed to the change?
- Not that we can think of (but we'll find out)
Would anyone be particularly happy about the change?
- Yes, some members of
What functionality is important to preserve when migrating?
- Data: articles and comments (stored as HTML in database)
- Metadata: dates, ordering, relation of comments to posts
- Feeds: feed URLs, UUIDs
- Media: include images in posts
- Commentspam: lock post after N months, no URLs, easy manual delete
What admin-facing functionality would change?
- Accounts: Kerberos suffices, no more blog-specific accounts
What do admins need to feel more comfortable with more ikiwiki?
- More documentation and training
