Subject Moving Lucene web site to git and .asf.yaml
Date Thu, 19 Sep 2019 08:33:11 GMT
Hi all,

INFRA announced a few weeks back a new self-serve mechanism .asf.yaml:

As I understand it, the old forrest CMS built from svn will eventually go away
and this is the new shiny way to publish (and stage) project websites.

I propose that we start to play with .asf.yaml by first adding the file to change
our GitHub project description which now says "Mirror of Apache Lucene + Solr" :)

Next let's migrate our web site from the svn over to a new branch in our git repo.
We could choose to use the Pelican static site generator, and then stage/publish
the site automatically using .asf.yaml magic. Moving from forrest to Pelican
( will take some effort, but they are both based on 
markdown and templating so should not be an impossible task :)

A positive site effect of moving our site to git could be that it gets easier to
dump our JavaDocs, RefGuide, future developer-Guides by simply committing html
files to the site git branch.

We should also design a new Lucene landing page but that's for another day...
