With the exception of a few server configuration errors, the wiki has
pretty much run itself the last few days. The contributions I've been
making are little different than if NCDAE were not hosting it.
If sub-committees decide to limit editing abilities for some users to
portions of the wiki, this will certainly take some time to set up and
administer. Giving one user all rights to part of the wiki, but not
editing rights to certain pages will be difficult and time consuming.
As I've now said several times, I do not think this is wise, nor
necessary. If the sub-committees feel that declaration of membership
in a committee is necessary, then I propose that we have a couple of
people (preferably subcommittee cochairs) that moderate the wiki - if
someone makes a change to a wiki page and that person is not listed on
the participants page, then the change is reversed. This essentially
provides the same functionality without the administration efforts. If
this is decided, it needs to be stated publicly.
I have spent some considerable time in getting the web site and lists
up and running, implementing the calendar, and the mailing list
archives. For the most part, I believe these efforts are concluded. We
are fine to provide the minimal administration time that these tools
will require over time. We can also provide FTP access to others to
help in that effort in the case that the workload becomes burdensome,
though I do not anticipate this.
Beyond that, there is discussion of development of a web-based queue
management tool and/or the proposal that NCDAE port the W3C queue
management tools to our servers. This (particularly the later) will
likely take more time than we will be comfortable providing gratis.
