I plan to make some changes to the website file structure. The goal is
to simplify the layout of the CVS directory and the scripts which glue
the website together.
Currently we have templates and scripts all over the place, I want to
rearrange that to be a bit more logical. Scripts will be in www/scripts/
, templates will be in www/templates. Also, templates should not be
named .html but just extension-less or .txt; this would make the xmllint
checking a bit easier too. I also want to integrate update-website.sh
into CVS; this will make website generation and updates to this script a
lot easier. Perhaps we can also move all news files to templates/news/.
Suggestions for other reorganisational things are also welcome of
course, might as well get everything correct in one go. Considering the
possible introduction of a CMS, what would make the implementation of
Since this has consequences for the integrity of CVS, the site and the
update-website script itself, we have to consider a "plan of attack".
First I'd like to know how what's the best procedure to move files from
a CVS POV. cvs remove && cvs add will also remove all version history,
which is rather inconvenient.
Secondly, once the conversion takes place, CVS will have to be frozen
until everything is functional again. I'll send a message to the website
list once I'll start moving things, so just check your mail before you
commit. This won't happen until next week though.
