On a more general note, I think it's time to move these web pages to
storm.FreeBSD.org.uk. Doing this will mean the following:
1. ukug members don't have a http://ukug.uk.FreeBSD.org/~user web
presence any more. This is the only downside that I can see.
2. Keeping the web pages updated can become a UK community driven
process. Many people don't have an account on storm, but
submitting web page patches that are generally approved will be
grounds for getting an account and a commit bit - in pretty
much the same way that the main FreeBSD project itself works.
3. The server is ``secure''. From a project perspective, we need
to ensure that the content of all domains under .FreeBSD.org is
under the FreeBSD project's control.
4. A ukug-committers mailing list will be created and will be open
for subscription to the general public. This will expose web
page updates to a ``healthy'' level of scrutiny - a good thing
Assuming there aren't any violent objections, I'd suggest the
following people as candidates for commit bits for the ukug web pages:
I'm completely open to further suggestions on the subject.
