It's true I'm in pmhell, and I already digged thru all those wikis and chromatic libraries.

Basically I'd need a standalone dev version of the monastery for testing.

    In fact. This is probably the biggest hurdle for me. I like the freedom to be stupid when Iím developing and thatís impossible working on (semi-) live code.

      why can't you have one? Also I thought PM was on multiple servers so can you not break one and then the others will still work?

        I just donít think there are any deployment processes. I could probably put one together but it would take a lot of work, it might be tricky given my dev.darwin v production.xyz, and it would be empty without permission to copy over the whole DB (semi-effectively promoting me to Godhood since I could see all data).

        Update: also, from my perspectiveÖ the site code should be nuked from orbit. I donít see anything here that I donít feel would be better and easier (to write, to test, to maintain, to rope in help) on any modern framework. I got a commit bit to try to encourage myself to try to work with whatís here but like a New Yearís Resolution gym membershipÖ I have nothing but appreciation and admiration for the active devs keeping the site going and nudging it toward new features.

      Yep, but to avoid misunderstandings:

      I didn't want to criticize the infrastructure or formulate feature requests.

      The thread is RFC and I honestly think that automatic categories are easier than manual tagging and the involved coordination and discussion.

      IOW was meant as a helpful suggestion nothing else.

      update

      And my first project if I found the time would be to open the code for pluggable frontends, such that others could easily provide different addons to change the look and feel. (Themes++)

      Like that bootstrap design from Tobyink.
