Subject live latest version of the forrest website
Date Fri, 26 Jul 2002 13:22:58 GMT
Dear all,

I set up an Alias directive on pointing to the local 
build directory of the new forrestbot.

We now have two hourly static versions of the site:

* using the old forrestbot by Nicola 
and scp for file transfer
* using the new bot by Marc, local 
deployment through a simple file copy and scp to Krysalis

The old bot runs on 0:00,2:00,4:00 etc hours, the new one alternatingly 
on the hour. The new one also updates the Krysalis site using scp, so 
this one remains updated every hour.

Soon, I will have the main page of deployed using the 
new forrestbot - we'll need to install external skin support for that.

Remaining challenge is of course regular automated publication of our 
reference Apache presence at, but as long 
as the only officially endorsed update mechanism for that is CVS upload, 
we'll have to live with our two guerilla sites :-)

Given some testing, and because Marc plans to refactor the main 
build.xml anyhow, I suppose we will move away from the old bot RSN - 
anyone hard feelings?

ps: now that Marc will be able to commit his stuff himself, I'll be able 
to work more on the DTDs again :-)
