Currently, the apache hbase website is built as described here
http://hbase.apache.org/book.html#hbase.org We run maven site and then
site:deploy. This rsyncs our content out to a dir on
people.apache.orgwhich in turn gets copied out to apache frontends on
Apache infrastructure are shutting down this publishing mechanism January
1st, 2013 and instead are offering two alternatives:
We could redo our website in apache cms format, option #1, or we could just
keep on w/ how we currently do our website only instead have it published
using svnpubsub tool (Option #2).
I suggest we go with option #2.
If we go this way, we'll need to have a versioned directory which has our
latest site in it. Commits into this directory will be autopublished as
I was thinking that in our source tree, the directory
./hbase.apache.orgwould be where we stash our site. I made
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-7372 for the checkin.
I'll start in on this project tomorrow unless violent objection.
Input/suggestions most welcome.
