1. Server for hosting the files
Currently we have ubuntu.foss.org.my, ubuntu.com.my and ubuntu-my.org and we are going to centralize all the files from different servers to one server. We agreed to host our official site on the current ubuntu.com.my server (VPS) and all the domain will be pointed to that server.
2. CMS for the website
We have 2 choices of CMS: plone and drupal. Plone have lots of features compared to drupal, but drupal is cheaper to maintain. Plone uses python and most of us are not very familiar with python, therefore we are choosing drupal as the content management system (CMS).
3. Theme for the website
Since we going for drupal, and both ubuntu.com.my and ubuntu-my.org are using the same theme, we will stick with the existing theme with few re-design on it. First will be the blue banner, which e-jat will work with gunbladeiv to change the color to brown (ubuntu official color), and secondly will be the ubuntu-my logo. Also, the website will be in Bahasa Malaysia (BM) and some of the images will have local touch.
4. Other online resources
Currently we have both the website and forum up at ubuntu.com.my, and we will continue to maintain and improve on both. For now, we will not have other resources (ie. wiki, etc) on that server until we have both website and forum fully up and running.
5. Tasks allocation
For the task allocation, we have the following arrangement:
e-jat: re-design the banner and ubuntu-my logo
sumardi & mypapit: carry over the existing topics and threads from the ubuntu.foss.org.my's forum to ubuntu.com.my's forum
nbliang: re-direct ubuntu-my.org (and possibly ubuntu.org.my) to ubuntu.com.my server
The official domain will be http://ubuntu-my.org, but http://ubuntu.com.my and http://ubuntu.org.my will be pointing to the same location (server) and we will be using drupal as the CMS with the existing theme. Both the blue banner and the ubuntu-my logo will be re-design to suit ubuntu's color and malaysia's taste.
All four members of the Web Development Team (WDT) will be assigned as Administrator for both the website and forum as well as given access to the VPS.
All the tasks assigned to be completed by 23 Nov 2007 (Friday) so that we can announce and let the rest of the members to access both the site and forum.
