Move help.gnome.org under Infrastructure and deploy a test instance
@shaunm , @davidk and @pmkovar are working on a new user documentation website for GNOME replacing the mostly unmaintained https://gitlab.gnome.org/Infrastructure/library-web. The new website will be powered by https://github.com/projectmallard/pintail and build Mallard XML sources directly from configured repos and branches. We would like this new website to be regenarated on a nightly basis, given the number of repos and translations we expect to build.
Please move https://gitlab.gnome.org/shaunm/help.gnome.org/ over to the Infrastructure group. Consider renaming it to
help-gnome-orgto be consistent with other website repo names. @shaunm , @davidk and @pmkovar would be the initial maintainers.
Please deploy a test instance with the Pintail-based site generator running from the moved repo. Requirements are documented in https://gitlab.gnome.org/shaunm/help.gnome.org/blob/master/README and https://github.com/projectmallard/pintail/blob/master/README.md, all mentioned Python packages should be available through
The site would be deployed with:
pintail build -v
For reference, site configuration with repos built is stored in https://gitlab.gnome.org/shaunm/help.gnome.org/blob/master/pintail.cfg.
Having a test instance available will enable us to proceed with further improvements to the site structure and design before it can be moved to the production.
