Anybody have any news on this?<br> + <br> + Thanks —aroach12<br> + <br> + We're migrating over smaller sites first ([https://sacwiki.org SacWiki.org is the first nearby one]). Being so close to Davis, we're hoping the SacWiki can be a good way to get some feedback. We'll be making a big SacWiki launch soon and hopefully get a bunch of great feedback then. There's two relatively small software blockers, as explained a bit above: implement an Events Board and figure out what we want to do with the Comments macro/functionality. --["Users/PhilipNeustrom"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> LocalWikihttp://daviswiki.org/LocalWiki2011-12-06 06:56:29TomGarberson <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for LocalWiki<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 30: </td> <td> Line 30: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ Yeah, #2 are the sort of things where it'd be worth getting a community conversation going to figure out what needs doing prior to the hackathon.

In terms of Davis-specific, there's two types of things I'm thinking: 1) Stuff that holds up a migration 2) Things folks want, or want changed, within attack-range. #1 includes, off the top of my head, the comments functionality (which Ryan in Rochester has been working on, but we would need to discuss here as it's been a controversial topic), the events board, footnotes and just general 'solidness' of the whole shebang. #2 includes, well, anything :) But things like "how should user notification work?" / anything that that might be specific to needs here. --["Users/PhilipNeustrom"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> LocalWikihttp://daviswiki.org/LocalWiki2011-12-05 21:32:51TomGarberson <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for LocalWiki<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 26: </td> <td> Line 26: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ Looking forward to giving it a spin on Sacramento.
