Repurposing the rebol domains
One of the subjects discussed at the Montreal ReCode conference was rejuvenating and repurposing the rebol.* domains. Brian D (aka hostilefork) pitched the main concept during his session, and the discussion continued later that afternoon.
Let me see if I can boil down the general idea, as I understand it, of how the three main rebol domains would be set up:
Overall, it seems like a pretty good plan, but it's certainly a nontrivial amount of work, and most of the elbow grease will need to come from the Rebol community.
I'm fine with providing the cloud servers, updating the domain name servers, and transferring some of the existing content (like moving some of the rebol.net pages to the new rebol.org server.) The web-sites and their code will need to come from you. Hopefully, Rebol will be used for a lot of it, and we can fill in with other systems where necessary.
When to begin? How about right now.
How to communicate? I'd like to use the comment part of this blog to get organized, post announcements, ask for help, and make suggestions. Everyone can access it, and it is viewable from almost any web-enabled device. Certainly the community can use whatever other forums are available for discussion, but I won't have time to track most of those.
In addition, I'll be setting up separate blog articles for the separate domains -- because each has different issues and we don't want the threads to get mixed-up.
So, here we go...
