Subject Re: Prototype Apache OODT website
Date Wed, 28 Jul 2010 04:17:16 GMT
Hey Sean,

This site is amazing. I'd call good enough "good enough", publish this to people.a.o, and
then close out OODT-16. We should create another ticket or something to run a link checker
against this before we release 0.1-incubating, but I think this is good enough to put out

One other thing we should do is throw up a quick wiki page at:


Something like:

Website Publish - How To

So that it's out there for when RM time comes. You rule. This site is the best OODT site I've
ever seen!


P.S. Minor thing, but why Ob and Or instead of O and O on the OO blocks that are part of "OODT"?

As part of progress on OODT-16, I've got a prototype of the Apache OODT website up and running

This site is generated from the Maven site artifacts of the oodt tree as of r965292 (back
when "mvn site" worked for every module except catalog), combined with static HTML artifacts.

Outstanding issues you'll encounter:

- Broken links
- Misshapen Maven reports
- Broken Facebook URL
- Missing apidocs link
- Lack of Twitter account
- Need handling of news items
- Add search box
- Make HEAD of the oodt tree work again
- More!

I welcome everyone's help, of course, ~_^

The static HTML artifacts are in svn at


To re-generate the Maven artifacts, just run "mvn site" at the top level "oodt" tree-assuming
we can get that working. (I had to "svn up -r965292".)

Then you can generate the site docs by using the oodtsite.publisher script.  The script is
checked in:


Of course, all this is open to change. Maybe static HTML artifacts aren't the right way to
go. Maybe Maven reports aren't all that useful. Maybe we should use a content management system
or just grab a Confluence space. Maybe blue & black aren't the right "feel" for OODT.
Maybe the look is too professional, not hokey open sourcy enough. Hey, I'm flexible. We're
all in this together! O-O-D-T! O-O-D-T!
