First - the work on the SilverStripe tooling is very much appreciated.
For myself, I would really like to see us, the folks that have
contributed so far to this NA DVD project, make use of the
infrastructure going forward. There are many benefits to doing so, in my
My concern has been with the current state of the assembled files. By
which I mean that we have been going over all the files assembled with
an eye to licenses and fitness for redistribution. ( Jeff C. has put a
lot of effort into this due diligence step) In doing so a number of
problem files were flagged and removed. Currently there is a large
number of templates that are being reviewed, it's only a matter of days
before this is finished. Until that is finished I would not be
comfortable pushing these files up to the community server. That is my
primary concern, giving any pause, at th moment.
At that point I'd like to see us generate an ISO that would be viewed as
a beta for the disc image, for people to review. That also would be, in
my opinion, a good spot to actually start the work of moving over to the
community based server.
@Tim, I could not explain the details of the custom build scripts of
course, but the general use of a Content Management System (CMS) for
building the disc image contents is something I do understand, if your
interested I'd be happy to talk to you about that on a phone call. If we
could get all of us on the NA team on a call that would be great -
perhaps there is some help we could get on that.
A good spot to stop for one email I think.
