Subject Help wanted: Someone to update meetups page
Date Tue, 28 Feb 2017 15:36:36 GMT
Despite the dozens of people who have volunteered to help out with the
events/meetups pages on the website, nobody has actually done anything
yet. I'm going to be charitable, and assume that this is because it's
unclear how to do it.

I would really like someone to take this task from me.

Here's how you do it:

0a) Check out
0b) Learn how to use the ASF CMS. Instructions are here: (scroll to the bottom)

1) Every Monday morning, or every Friday night, run ./get_meetups in
that directory

2) Edit meetups.mdtext and do a sanity check. 'Apache' matches a lot of
things that are not the ASF, such as hiking groups in Apache Junction,
Arizona, and several drawing and spiritual groups. Delete those lines.

3) Visit the page at and click
your Apache CMS bookmarklet from step 0b

4) Copy/Paste the contents of meetups.mdtext into the body of that page,
replacing all the events from the previous week. Publish that page.

These instructions are also in

Please let me know if you are going to take over this task. Better yet,
someone automate it.
