Forum OpenACS Development: Intranet module (or a bit of it)
I know this is a recurring question, but what is the status of the
port/development of the intranet module? Actually, I'm just looking
for a time sheets implementation. We (in my company) have been
building client sites on ACS3.4 for a good while now, but would like
to start moving towards Open ACS since things are so much
more "alive" in terms of community and development.
However ... before anyone would want to do that they'd want to take a good hard look at the unfinished work from aD. If you folks are interested in peeking at this let me know - there are some previous threads on the subject so I'd suggesting starting out by researching them.
intranet solution. You'd still need the biz-specific functionality
(time sheets, etc.), but in terms of creating project areas, etc., it'll
probably be a good model.
The dotlrn.mit.edu site talks about availability in Jan 2001 (although I think this is probably a typo and should be 2002) and an alpha release in mid November.
coming January (probably late January, AFAIK). Obviously, the
preview release was delayed, but I'm told they still plan on hitting
their January deadline and they still plan on putting out a
preview release some time before then. But I'm not an insider on
the project, so I'm only telling you what I was told a couple of
weeks ago. Perhaps somebody who is directly involved with the
project will give us more detail when they can.
Alas, intranet is virtually non-existent. I agree with Michael that dotLRN will take us very close to where we need to go.
Or we can all just wait for Armenta to show up and then move on to that...
OK, I'll bite. What's "Armenta"?

I'm not sure how these links help with an intranet, though.
Steve Jobs has gone on record as saying it will "change civilization as Michelangelo painted it".
But we won't really know until the next episode of Good Morning America. Or until Vinod returns from Cancun.
I'm thinking Russell Crowe and Chyna of course.

Some of my extentions do rely on Oracleisms like connect by.
I think there are enough improvements that it would be worth whoever's time to look at my code.
