[Gnumed-devel] Twiki issues
Mon, 10 Jan 2005 14:38:29 -0800
I am still not fully caught up on some personal stuff (I could write
my own version of the 12 days of Christmas, to include the kitchen
drain plugging Christmas day, faucet falling apart, dishwasher dying,
toddler spitting milk into the new digital piano, wife's car hit by a
priest etc) but am catching up.
I have a few thoughts to add to the thread "re-think in 2005", maybe
in a couple of days.
Nice to see TWiki up, I have therefore updated link at gnumed.org ---
when I did so I *was* perplexed to find missing the notice I had put
up advising in late November that the wiki was *down*, dunno if Tony
is aware of any problems around then or if it was just bad luck, and
my edit was not accepted.
Several questions about the TWiki install and our usage preferences
Carlos, what version of Twiki was installed --- was it 01-Sep-2004
Release (Cairo) --- and what installation 'steps" have so far been
done? I am guessing there is work to be done if one were to actually
follow the referance installation guide. For example email may
somehow have to be enabled before it is possible for users to create
profiles and make changes to the content as anyone other than
TwikiGuest. There are additional things that need to be done, like
adding myself and maybe David Grant (if willing) and Thilo and anyone
else willing/appropriate to the TWikiAdmin group and uncommenting the
ALLOWTOPICCHANGE = TWikiAdminGroup line.
Do we want to preserve TWikiGuest or do we want to revoke it so that
people can only make changes after having created their own user
profile? --- It could be helpful to know who has made certain
changes. I imagine it should remain possible for the public to read
pages despite disabling TWikiGuest?
At http://18.104.22.168/twiki/ along with a few TWiki documents, is
a "Note: These pages do not need to be accessible by http. Access
http://your.server.com/your-cgi-bin/view/Main/WebHome after you
1. Is it important for someone to disable general read access to this
2. If so is the documentation linked via the wiki, or should special
permissions be needed to directly access these files later? We do
need to keep these versions available, because the documentation at
the main twiki site will change as they work on new versions.
Shall we add gnumed to twiki.org's list of installations?
Who should subscribe to twiki-announce security alerts as per
I can add myself, and (provided I am not away or indisposed) I can
try to quickly notify people of any concerns. My technical ability to
respond is, however, limited. Should we have at least 3 people
subscribed and among these should at least one be Carlos or Karsten
or David or anyone else who has (or is willing to have) the
permissions necessary to respond to security alerts?
