Andreas, John,
If it's still good for you,
a call to discuss the AMQP web site on Thursday, 12/1, at 17:00 UTC works for us.

Jose pulled together a preliminary list of technical questions and issues we'd like to address on the call:

1. Which version of Drupal is
amqp.org running?
2. Is this version of Drupal and all its modules up to date?
3. Are there any custom Drupal modules or configurations?
4. What database server (type, version, and engine type) is
amqp.org running?
5. What webserver (type and version) is
amqp.org running?
6. Transferring files: to maintain file integrity, including permissions, would the WG be willing to give Jose ssh/rsync access to the

amqp.org filesystem on their webserver?

We'd also like to get an idea of your plans for the future of the site--especially any technical enhancements you'd like to see.

Will you send us your preferred dial-in number for the call? (Just let me know if you'd like me to set one up.)

We discussed the AMQP Member Section web site issue in the MS steering committee meeting this week.

We want to have a single web site for AMQP marketing and other MS topics. This site shall be operated by OASIS.

It shall also include pre-OASIS material (pre-1.0 specifications, conference material, ...).

We have understood that this poses no problem for OASIS if the non-OASIS origin is clearly visible.

Currently, the Working Group evaluates which legacy material can be submitted, keeping copyrights in mind.

On the other hand, we aim for using it as location for non-normative references cited in the OASIS AMQP 1.0 specification, which is currently being prepared by the AMQP TC.

Therefore, the MS site issue is an urgent topic for us - we have to assure that the URLs do not change when transforming the AMQP Working Group site to the OASIS MS site.

Can we arrange for a telco with your webmaster beginning of next week to discuss the options how to setup an MS site that fits into the OASIS technology?

Since members from timezones -8:00 to +1:00 want to join, I propose following windows:

Mon, 11/28, 16:00 - 18:00 UTC

Wed, 11/30, 17:00 - 18:00 UTC

Thu, 12/1, 17:00 - 18:00 UTC

Fri, 12/2, 16:00 - 18:00 UTC

Re: Fw: AMQP.org edits: Remove Novell

Andreas and I discussed alternatives for handling the AMQP Member Section web site; we identified two options:

a) transition AMQP.org to be the central location for MS *and* legacy WG information
b) create a separate MS web site and reserve
amqp.org for legacy WG information only

From a branding perspective, there are obvious advantages to one central location--clear, consistent messaging, less confusion for users, less duplication of content, easier maintenance, continued association with the unique AMQP site design...

Andreas raised several issues that prompted the StC to consider two sites--legacy documents, differing Drupal versions and customizations, control of content. Details on these:

1) WG legacy specs and documents can continue to be maintained on
amqp.org regardless of which option is chosen. (If one site, then the current "Specifications" page on amqp.org can be expanded to add links to future TC-approved specs; all specs will be clearly labeled as either OASIS products or legacy AMQP WG products. If two sites, OASIS specs will be found on the MS site and WG specs on amqp.org--which could result in confusion.)

amqp.org is based on an older and/or customized version of Drupal. To determine if this will present problems for OASIS hosting, the OASIS webmaster, Jose Marquez, will need to speak with someone familiar with amqp.org.

3) OASIS staff do not intend to post subject-matter content to the MS site. The only types of content staff need to post are:
-roster updates for MS members
-roster updates for the Steering Committee (result of annual elections)
-press releases (already approved by the TC/StC)
-event announcements

Staff can work through a StC designee to post content to
amqp.org, if someone is willing to take this on.

One site or two--OASIS can work with either option. The one thing I want to avoid (naturally) is a short-term fix; the effort on our end of creating a separate MS site is not trivial.

Let me know if you'd like to discuss further or work through technical details with our webmaster.
