Comments on: Rebuilding rebol.org
This posting provides a simple way to coordinate and post announcements for the reworking of rebol.org.
See Repurposing the rebol domains for the general idea.
Note: rebol.org has always been run as an independent site. Although I helped kick it off, a few energetic folks took it from there. I don't have any ownership over it, but those who run it certainly do. Before anything can be done, it's necessary to coordinate and get the approval and buy-in with the current administrators and operators of the site.
Todo #1: We need a list of those who are still involved in running rebol.org. I think the list is fairly small at this point.
Todo #2: Build a list of those who want to be involved with the new rebol.org.
Todo #3: The second group needs to ask the first group for permission to proceed. If there are any issues, they'll need to be resolved with that group before moving forward.
Sunanda has been the workhorse for many years, but has been offline due to health issues. Peter Wood and I have access and just watch for problems. We haven't made any updates in a long while.
Peter and I want to make sure Sunanda is notified, not just because he could help in the transition, but because he has put a great deal more time into the current site than anyone else.
Maybe publish a job list rather than a volunteer list, and let people choose a task to attempt. |
Peter reached Sunanda, and he will grab a copy of all the current stuff on rebol.org as a backup. I'm grabbing it as well, right now.
When we do the revamp, I would very much like Sunanda to be credited somewhere, and perhaps a "thank you" in a blog entry from Carl. He has done so much over the years, largely unsung. I think he deserves it, and Peter does as well.
I've asked if he wants to be inovlved in the rewrite, and will let you know what I hear.
I connected with Sunanda, and he is happy to have the new team re-energize rebol.org. He will answer questions about the old site if needed, as time and his health allow, but doesn't care to be involved in the day-to-day operations or redesign.
We have permission to proceed.
