Re: What are we missing to move wiki to www

I just made a few updates to be aware of:

Release announcements for 1.2 posted along with changelog.
I moved the comment in the about page regarding the "central database"
for users and preferences from the future planning section to the
section of new features.

Also, Chris Murtagh added our team public GPG key to a link on the
download page.  Access to this key is necessary for verifying package

Best Wishes,
Chris Travers

(Sorry, only just noticed this post after I sent you some related emails)

The only outstanding issue (as I noted to the list 19/03/07) are the
screenshots. I had a stab at those today after you installed the image module
for me early last week. There is a small issue that I've emailed you about re
getting the image module working.

One other minor thing is a theme tweak which I emailed you on a few minutes
ago as well, but it's not a show-stopper imo.

I have already pasted Chris' release notes for 1.2.0 to the news (and have
been posting other release notes as they came up), and as far as I know
everything is ready to go except the screenshots. I also am very keen to get
wiki pushed over to www ASAP.

In fact, even if we don't get the images issue sorted out right away, can we
just do it? I think the advantages of having a user-maintained FAQ etc far
outweigh anything that's on the existing site (all of which is copied over
anyway bar screenshots) so I don't see any reason to hold off.

Especially now with the release of 1.2 I think a lot of people are going to
want to know what the migration path is and how they should strategically
plan for migration (I for one am weighing up trying to id the point at which
migration pain vs LSMB-gotchas will balance - should I migrate now while it's
easy and get bitten by corner-case bugs, or should I wait for more
stabilisation but face a nastier migration path?). This is all stuff that can
be hashed out and answered in the FAQ section etc once we can all collaborate
on it.

+1 vote for hang it all, let's move the drupal site to the live address and
start getting contributors onboard.
