Literacy Volunteers of Greater Worcester, lvgw.org, is seeking a volunteer
for a one-off project to refresh their website. This is not an ongoing
commitment. Not sure if the backend tools the use for site management are
linux-based, but I suspect they are not. Their goals are:
1. Updating LVGW's website to make it more user friendly, interactive
2. The current website needs some work to make it easier to use and
update. This person would also mentor a staff member about these issues
Please contact me offline if you are interested. They are also separately
looking for a volunteer archivist to create an online database of their
historical and research data.
Hope you don't think this crosses the line of fair use of this list, but it
is for a good cause.
I presume we're actually going to have a WLUG meeting this month?
Would anybody like to step forward and give a talk?
I am leery of the allegiances of any politician who refers to their
constituents as "consumers".
The subversion server at my office is on a CentOS 6 server, and a software
developer wrote a hook in python for it. The hook requires python 2.7, but
CentOS 6 only has 2.6.6 (python-2.6.6-36.el6 to be exact).
I grabbed python-2.7.2-5.2.fc16.src.rpm from Fedora 16 and am trying to
roll my own via instructions I found on the CentOS wiki. All is good
except that it requires db4.8, and that's not out for RHEL6 either.
>From where I stand, it looks like my options are:
1) wait this out until either Python or a dependency are pushed up, but
when is that?
2) rebuild this package with the deps, but I'm not quite sure how to roll a
3) roll my own package from scratch
4) install python 2.7 in an alternate location and point to it for this
Since this is a production server, I'd rather no do any hacks on this.
Does anybody know how the release schedule works, or have any other advice?
Thanks in advance,
