You probably noticed that he created a branch for that.

Indeed, we have a deadline set to the end of the year to migrate our website to use svnsubpub,
so I started playing around with this and the Apache CMS.
At the moment, this is just a folder in my sandbox, but in the end it will be a specific svn
repository for the website (like the ones for apacheds, studio, etc).

Here are some useful links if you're interested into that:
- ASF Content Management System [1]
- ASF CMS Reference [2]
- ASF CMS Adoption [3]
- Manage your project web site [4]
- Instructions on the Apache Lucene website to update their website [5]

the website, while keeping Confluence as a wiki for everything related to the project developments.

I think we want to distinguish 2 kinds of sites:
- the Apache Directory Project official site ( and its sub-sites
for ApacheDS, Apache Directory Studio, the Apache Directory LDAP API.
- our development sites (mainly confluence wiki) where we host some implementation details
and choices (diagrams)

For the first category, which is directed towards the public and generates a high traffic,
we need to migrate to the new system.
The second category is less important and almost only interesting for us, so I think we can
leave these things on Confluence, where it's easier to edit.

In the next days, I will provide a first migration mockup of the site (I have a very basic
working one with fake content ATM).
