Subject Re: [RELEASE] new DL test...needs review and comments, and probably correction
Date Wed, 02 May 2012 00:33:47 GMT
Hi Joe,

I now understand what needs to be done to use the aoo-closer.cgi as a webpage of our own design.

For example:

(1) Create create trunk/cgi-bin/aoo-download.cgi in the project or ooo-site using the aoo-mirrors.list.
Use the MIRRORS_LIST env.

(2) Create downloads/aoo.mdtext file by cribbing http://www.apache.org/dyn/closer.mdtext.
Use the SCRIPT_FILENAME env to set the path to this page in the content tree.

aoo-download.cgi should look like this:
 #!/bin/sh
export MIRRORS_LIST=<as seen on a private email>
export SCRIPT_FILENAME=/openofficeorg/downloads.html
exec /www/www.apache.org/dyn/mirrors/mirrors.cgi

Is this correct? I'd get on the IRC, but I'm afraid I have more of a learning curve with that
than I thought.

Regards,
Dave
