Well, I'm in between major projects right now so I have the time to
devote to something moderately ambitious, but my experience in setting
up websites only covers trivial topics (nothing like setting up a LAMP
based wiki). I can set up a hermetically sealed server, but I've always
left the web implementation to others. At any rate I'm going to start
researching, planning and setting up a skeleton site but I would
probably need some help with the implementation along the way.
@Clif, I understand that any community forum and wiki site would require
considerable automated and human filtering of unwanted junk. I can
handle most of the automated side. But I think the NOVALUG provides
just the sort of verifiable admin resource pool to deal with the human
side of such issues. That is if there are enough people to help out in
that basic sort of capacity.
I'll go ahead and start testing various wiki and related CW FOSS, if
anyone has suggestions or recommendations I would appreciate the input.
