Which would be who exactly?
Nils started the topic of scoil.linux.ie, suggesting putting something
up on the scoil.linux.ie website.
I suggested the use of a wiki,(although Nils claims he mentioned it
before in an earlier thread that I aparently didn't see), and emailed
the committee, requesting write access to scoil.linux.ie, for the
putpose of putting a wiki, and other school related webscripts(eg
forums/blogs/whatever) on it, as agreed by the community(there seemed
to be consensus that a wiki was the way to go). I furthermore
suggested/volunteered that if scoil.linux.ie couldn't be made
available for the putting of school related content in a wiki, then
whlist scoil.linux.ie would be preferable, we could set up a schools
Kevin then suggested an alternative to the proposed mediawiki, of
twiki, and volunteered to install and maintain either wiki.
Then Colm(the only person so far, who actually has the necessary
privilages to set up something) said he'd install something
tomorrow(that was yesterday IIRC).
I think it's fair to say that the people who've agreed(implicitly, or
explicitly) to do some work on the back end are Nils(I'm assuming),
myself, Kevin,and Colm.
As it happens, the rest of can only make suggestions. Colm is the only
one who actually has the necessary permissions to do anything, and the
rest of us can't do anything until he either assigns a user account
with the necessary privilages to install a wiki, to someone, or else
installs a wiki himself. It looks like he has chosen the latter
option, so no matter what we say here, what will happen, will probably
be whatever Colm decides happens.
