Firstly, is that why the manuals site is down? I don’t see why it has
to be down to enable content to be ported across.
It’s not a particularly stable app. The server is pretty old and has
a lot of stuff running on it too. There are plans to move it to a
container like the recent trac/svn move, but it’s not near as urgent a
need right now.
If the core Rails team have decided to use Mephisto, what’s involved
in helping to port the content? Also, is Jamis B. aware that the
consolidation to Mephisto includes the manuals? I notice he and
others have had some recent (inconclusive) discussion about the best
way to maintain the Capistrano documentation.
Yup, he’s aware. I don’t think his plans include the manuals site. I
spoke with one of the new authors involved with the Caboose
documentation project, and he mentioned wanting a place to put updated
rails docs. So, we may see a re-org real soon anyway.
