About the site

Document Actions

This site has been developed with Plone 2.0.5 and Zope 2.7.5. The Apache2 webserver sits between the 'Net and the Zope server, and all three run on a Debian sarge system. Site credits are on a separate page.

Do come back in a while when I have had a chance to provide more details about the making of this site. In a nutshell: as a moderately experienced Plone programmer, it took me a good two days to get this site to where it is now. My main principles have been:

  • 100% standards compliance.
  • minimal changes to the Plone defaults.
  • Do everything (almost) in a product, not through the web.
  • targeted for easy migration to Plone 2.1 and Zope 2.8.
  • logical and usable navigation and structure.

If you have any suggestions, comments, or questions, I would be glad to answer them.

Noel Davis, rootprompt.org: Can you imagine a book about Debian GNU/Linux stretching to 600 pages? No, not covering any of the applications that ship with Debian, nor delving into general configuration of, say, X or Samba. Just pure Debian; that is to say, the book covers Debian-specific utilities only, in densely printed pages with hardly any screenshots. Yup, a book like that has just been published under the name of The Debian System - Concept and Techniques. Written by Martin Krafft, this is one of the most comprehensive and detailed accounts of the largest Linux distribution in existence.
