Your commit access to ooo hasn't been activated yet. Probably will happen after the next batch
of accounts are created.

On the commit, I was prompted for my user ID (orcmid) and my password, but I got

I am using <> as the URL that my working

Is there something administrative that is yet to be done?  That I need to do? (I haven't put
an SSH cert at yet.)

I recommend using

for the markdown sources.  The way to get everything
into svn is to add them to the ooo tree the way
you would any other code.  Once the basic tree is
established, file an INFRA Jira ticket to enable
the CMS webgui and publishing facilities.

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!

If the new CMS can be used, then  I'd recommend going with that. It

The CMS is newer than that documentation,  which may be why it "prefers"

IOW, my +1 is for the CMS. If we find that  the community doesn't like
it, then we can make another choice  for the long-term site.

 With the CMS, would we also need to check in the generated site into

The markdown is in subversion. You can edit  it either offline and commit or
you can use (a fairly basic) web UI.  From the webUI you can publish the
site, but there are also scripts to  enable you to do it from the command

I recently  built the boilerplate for the Rave podling (which in turn was
stolen  from another podling, Clerrezza I think). If you checkout**asf/incubator/rave/site/trunk/<>and
look over the history you'll get an idea of how we built the site up  for
that podling. The first commit is a fairly bare bones template you  could
reuse with just a little find/replace.

Once you  have this template in place you need to ask infrastructure (via a
JIRA  ticket) to turn on the site publishing features.

As an ASF  committer you can check out the UI of some of the foundation wide
