Subject Re: Podling website

So I'm making some progress on the website.

I've read through the CMS reference doc.  I also downloaded the site from
the Raven podling and customized the markdown.

A few questions:

1) If I understand correctly, we put out markdown in
trunk/content/$projectname.  For us, is that trunk/content/ooo ?  or
trunk/content/openofficeorg ? Does it matter, so long as it is unique?

I see the podling status page lists the ultimate URL as :

So I'm assuming for now that the markdown goes into

2) I'm not seeing how I get these files initially loaded into the CMS.  I
can see that once it is there, I can use the bookmarklet to do further
edits.  But how do I bootstrap this?

Thanks for any hints!
