Subject Re: [Discussion] Geronimo web site update
Date Tue, 20 Feb 2007 00:59:33 GMT
Native confluence news?  Huh?

Moving the old news... is the painful process of converting html to  
wiki... and AFAIK there is no way to backdate the content, so will  
have to put a note in the news stating which date it was really  
from.  Unless you want to hack the DB... which I don't recommend.   
Its been a while since I looked into it though... might be some  
backdate support in the newer versions of Confluence.
