Subject Re: Proposal for a brand new ManifoldCF website
Date Wed, 21 Feb 2018 10:20:03 GMT
Hi,

I would like to continue this discussion and considering that we have a
huge interest on this side, I have just added a new issue on our JIRA
dedicated to arrange the work:
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CONNECTORS-1495

Considering the Apache CloudStack template and using Jekyll with the
approach suggested by Muhammed, we only need to start doing something to
understand if it could be the right way to follow.

I hope to find some time the next week.
Please let me know if someone else can spend some time on this and when.

Remember that we also have a public HipChat room available here:
https://www.hipchat.com/gOSgu3lH8

Thank you all.

Cheers,
PJ
