Subject Any23 Roadmap [WAS] Re: Googlegroup or Apache SVN
Date Mon, 09 Jan 2012 14:03:25 GMT
Hi tomasso. Thanks for your comments. I  am happy to progress with the
website task [1] but I think it would be beneficial to consider a few
points at this stage.
1) We discussed briefly moving the existing site documentation out of the
trunk codebase to its own separate directory within our Any23 SVN area.
Does anyone have any thoughts on running this over the ASF CMS? I have been
trying to get up to speed with it but to be honest I'm a bit unclear as to
where to get started with this... I'm waiting on hearing back from some
people I've asked but if anyone is up to speed with this then please say

So just to clarify...


Can you confirm that all recent changes made to the Googlecode can be
ported to the ASF Any23 code residing in our SVN area?

Thank you Lewis
