I am off for some vacation over the holidays. Basically, I won't be back
until Monday the 12th of January. I will of course check on the site, to
make sure it stays up, and I will scan my email inbox for urgent messages.
I think it would be good to have a larger discussion about where we stand
concerning the site when we get back from the holidays.
In any case, of the really major tasks, there are only a couple left to be
sorted out, as I see it right now. These include:
* Language support. How we can handle multiple language versions of
content added by us and the kids. Some support for this is already in
place, such as the group presentations and the help pages; but this
solution is not transparent enough for the kids to use. More
specifically, the support for multiple languages should be included in
the report mechanism, but stay invisible to the kids.
* Group presentations and other content. There's still a lot of content in
the Weblabs wiki that could be useful within the webreports framework.
Right now it remains a bit cumbersome for the researchers to add content
to the site, and we would need to outline some guidelines for how this
should be done.
* Documentation. The user instructions remain to a large extent to be
written. In addition to this, I would like to transfer more of my
knowledge about how the site works internally to some of you.
Apart from these larger issues, there remains a huge amount of more or
less important fixes to be done. The problem is mainly to decide which
things will be fixed first. Therefore I would like you to send me an email
if there is any fix that you feel particularly strongly for.
That's it and that's that for now.
Happy holidays everyone, see you in January.
