02/20/12 Declan Lynch Bruce Elgort Niklas Heidloff OpenNTF.Org - The Third Generation
Disclaimer This deck is only a starting point outlining some of the ideas how we'd like to extend the OpenNTF.Org web site We are seeking for feedback and volunteers None of this has been committed or approved
OpenNTF.Org Web Site Designs First Generation Second Generation Third Generation To be done
Goals <ul><li>Change the site design to use a modern look and feel, specifically the black OneUI
Provide version control systems on OpenNTF </li><ul><li>First prio: Git, Mercurial
Second prio: SVN </li></ul><li>Extend the reach by being present in established communities </li><ul><li>First prio: GitHub
Second prio: Bitbucket </li></ul><li>Provide the next generation of project/lifecycle management </li></ul>
Objectives <ul><li>Deploy the open source project management application Redmine on OpenNTF and use it as the user interface for contributors
Change the current XPages based project management app to be consumer focussed and link to Redmine for contributors
Deploy Git and Mercurial servers on OpenNTF and integrate them in Redmine
Deploy Redmine plugin to integrate GitHub in Redmine
Change the style of the home page, blog, documents, project finder page and project homes pages to the black OneUI
Change the Redmine default UI to something close to the black OneUI </li></ul>
New Project Home Pages for Consumers <ul><li>Redmine doesn't provide all functionality needed so that some parts need to be done via XPages, esp. releases and screenshots
The new project home pages will be consumer focussed with easy mechanisms to download releases and rate projects
Functionality for contributors (e.g. assignment of members, defect triaging, code reviews) will be done in Redmine
The following functionality remains on the XPages based UI </li><ul><li>Core home page with rich text project description and rating (reachable via openntf.org/p/projectName or myproject.openntf.org)
Releases (existing download tracking can be used)
Wiki, documents, files and forums </li></ul><li>SCM repositories are created when projects are created </li><ul><li>Git (git.openntf.org) or Mercurial (hg.openntf.org) on OpenNTF </li></ul><li>GitHub repositories can be linked to Redmine projects
The contributors project home pages can be reached from the consumer home pages and URL projects.openntf.org/projectName
Staging <ul><li>All new projects will use the new reduced consumer home page and Redmine </li><ul><li>When OpenNTF users create a project the XPages project and Redmine project are created </li></ul><li>All projects that haven't been changed for two years will be marked as archived </li><ul><li>They will continue to use the current project management UI (but read only)
They will be less visible on the projects finder page
They can be reactivated by owners, e.g. to be able to create new releases </li></ul><li>For all projects that have been changed in the last two years Redmine projects will be created </li><ul><li>No data will be migrated programmatically
The projects will continue to use the current XPages UI (but read only) and in parallel the new Redmine UI
After one year we'll remove the information that should be stored in Redmine from the consumer project home pages </li></ul></ul>
Open Questions <ul><li>How can we a SSO between Domino and Redmine on Apache be done?
How can the banner and sidebar ads be added to Redmine?
How much can the Redmine theme be changed to look more like the black OneUI?
Using GitHub currently requires manual config. When can this be automated?
How to do search between NSFs and Redmine? </li></ul>
High Level Tasks <ul><li>Set up Ubuntu server with SSH
