Hi Dan!

See the new-committers FAQ [1] which should answere your questions (I hope it's

For the website: usually the version gets added to the base-URL, so for
different version we won't override old pages. In OWB, we did just setup a
redirect to the latest version.

regarding Wiki: we can request a CWIKI area for Isis.

LieGrue, strub

     Now most of the accounts are

created and we should go forward: I see from [4] that my login would appear to be 'danhaywood', but where do I login, and what would my password be?  Will I receive some sort of password by email?

3- Project Website: 3.1 We need to follow the steps explained in [2] and [3], so I need some help from NOF people to start working on that

ASAP. Currently our project website is built using Maven .  Looking at [3] it seems that this is an accepted approach.  But (speaking with Rob) we're not sure what this means in practice.  Our guess is: a) mvn site-deploy into some high-up directory in our SVN tree, then b) svn add all the files generated.

But how does this work for subsequent releases?  Do we do the same and an svn add of everything new?  How are we meant to identify files that are removed (eg, for generated javadocs for classes that have moved package)?

4- Project Wiki: 4.1 We should start discussing how documentations are going to be done on Wiki - maybe from the site itself.

A wiki is definitely required to capture input from the community.

That said, my view was to keep the wiki as small as possible, with the committers working to move any valuable content from the wiki and into the formal documentation.  Each main module will have its own DocBook XML file (src/docbkx/guide) and this will be the main place for documentation to end up.

I've also suggested that each module has a simple src/site/apt/jottings.apt as a place to jot down any documentation that should be added to the DocBook.

6- Project Apache like Logo: 6.1- For this one I will have my brother make you some, he is a graphics/web designer.

That'd be a good start, thanks.
