Forum .LRN Q&A: Re: Making EditThisPage work with dotLRN

Posted by Carl Robert Blesius on

Also of note: the long term goal is to make .LRN as thin and  OpenACS adherent as possible and one of the things that will move it in that direction happens to be a rewrite of the portal infrastructure that Don is working on will make adding an OpenACS package to .LRN easier. This way other existing and possible developments (e.g. nice CMS package, a ticket tracker for user support, an image database, a directory, personal aggregator, a cool internal wikipedia type thing that is waiting to be built, etc.) will be easier to integrate in .LRN.

Also, ideally we will have a setup that will make it easy for institutions to keep portions of their homegrown infrastructure (that also depend on .LRN) up-to-date with the most recent release and contribute their OpenACS pieces back to the community by adding simple portal and applet code if it is needed.


P.S. Over the weekend I ran across this link  featured on one of my favorite OpenACS based sites ( Berklee has created one of the cooler "homegrown" OpenACS systems (that uses some pieces of .LRN) I know of. I have been breathing (and singing) differently ever since.
