About the Website
The web server is a dual 650MHz P3 with 1GB of RAM. The server was contributed by Jay Lawrence, the RAM was contributed by Peter Sjoberg and the hard drives were contributed by Scott Murphy. The massive task of migrating from our older hardware was undertaken by Brenda J. Butler. Our wiki has further hardware details.
How to Contribute
The website is an open-source project. The webmaster is merely the benevolent dictator for the site, with veto power on any changes, coordinating work items and editing patches. The current webmaster is reachable at: webmaster at oclug.on.ca.
Anyone wishing to contribute to the site may do so. Development of the site is carried out on http://devel.oclug.on.ca. Simply reporting problems or making suggestions are a great help.
There are currently three forums for the Webmasters to use for site development. See "Mailing Lists" from the home page's main menu.
- The Linux discussion mailing list
- The OCLUG Wiki
- The OCLUG IRC channel
The Wiki is a good place for to-do lists and such. As of this writing, there is one Website To-Do List on the Wiki. The mailing list may be used for discussion with other OCLUG members, and the IRC channel for quick questions and online meetings. Problem reports and suggestions may be submitted to the ticket system on the Wiki (after you register an account).
