Fedora CMS focus and scope

19-Aug-08

After my post, Why and where Fedora needs a CMS solution, which included a follow-up discussion on fedora-websites-list, there were questions and gentle dissent. I think those stemmed mainly from it not being clear what the intended scope is for a CMS solution. There were also calls for one or another specific CMS solution, which […]

Why and where Fedora needs a CMS solution

13-Aug-08

Since I answer these questions regularly, as has been this history of this discussion, I’m hammering it out in one location forevermore.

04-Aug-08

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/10/Alpha/ReleaseNotes We’re going to keep them editable unless things really get slammed.
