Subject forrest & lenya
Date Mon, 07 Apr 2003 15:06:32 GMT
dear forrest community,

a while back there was some discussion about possible synergies
between lenya and forrest. we now made a first step by turning
forrest into a lenya publication. what does this mean?

- xdoc files can be edited through the web by using xopus:

- access to authoring is protected by the lenya authorization

- publishing of files, revision control and scheduling can
  easily be added

to eat our own dogfood, we are building the lenya documentation
on top of this proof of concept. we started with the webapp
target in forrest, and stripped it down until it ran inside
cocoon. we had to apply a trivial patch to the forrest sitemap
to make it work.

where do we go from here?

- make it easier to stay in sync with forrest changes, maybe
  through a new build target in forrest

- allow editing of site.xml through the browser

- hook up bitflux editor

- investigate the use of site.xml as navigation framework inside

if you want to play with the code, it is available in our cvs at
cvs -d co lenya

i hope you find these experiments useful :)
