Subject Re: New Website Work

Apache's rules are pretty clear about hosting the website -- they need to
do it on their existing platform, which only serves straight HTML pages
(they have a clustered system around the world).

The way I setup the CMS is that you use the CMS to make changes to the
site, then hit "publish".  It then generates static HTML pages and then
merges them on Apache's SVN (changes to the SVN is what triggers something
on their side which sends copies of the site to all of the machines in
their cluster).

They do have a partnership with Microsoft to host a VM, which could host
the CMS portion of the site.  I know we've had mixed results with that in
the past, but I could request a VM for that purpose.

I think the TourDeFlex pretty much pulls in straight .XML files stored on
the server somewhere.  I know Adobe used to have portions of it that talked
to a BlazeDS server, but I seem to remember those portions getting pulled
during the donation (I might be wrong on that front).
