Forum OpenACS Q&A: Porting Ybos Content Management?
- Is there much interest in getting the Ybos content management module ported to OpenACS?
- How much of that interest could translate into help making the port happen?
I might be interested, but not for the next few weeks, as I work on moving. I will look into it to see where in my queue of interesting ACS items it will fall, though. I am still not quite clear on what exactly the module does, unfortunately.
Roberto asked for pointers to information on it. The best I have found so far is http://www.ybos.net/modules/cm.tcl
We discovered a few weeks ago that our documentation was not included with the tar file. (Sorry!) You can get it in the most recent cm download, or just check out http://www.ybos.net/doc/cm.
Why don't you drop us a line. We just ported the cm over to ACS 3.4, (mostly the database API), and cleaned up the code a bit. We haven't rolled it out yet, but we'll happily send it over to you.
So Janine will need to port an older version over. It will need to be ported again for 4.0 - after Ybos rewrites it as a proper 4.0 module, of course.
