Description Daniel Drake (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-09-07 13:30:07 UTC
I've created a template file for www-client/planet-20040808 in hope of pushing forward the "Planet Gentoo" idea - I think this a good idea because it is one step we can take to reduce the gap between the user and developer communities.

The design is nothing new, I just tried to copy the style. Hopefully this is acceptable, because I suck at designing things :P

I'll post my work here shortly.

Only looked at the screenshot, but this lot looks very useful.  Thanks Daniel ;-)
Comment 6 Daniel Drake (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-09-07 14:18:21 UTC
Sample install instructions:
1. emerge planet
2. cp -R /usr/lib/planet ~/planet
3. cd ~/planet
4. download and extract output.tar.bz2 from here
5. mkdir gentoo
6. download config.ini and index.html.tmpl into gentoo/
7. python gentoo/config.ini

index.html.tmpl v2

New template file, which uses the new username config entries to provide links
to the users buglist, commit stats, and homepage. Also some
minor tweaks to the backing HTML.
Comment 9 Daniel Drake (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-10-27 10:03:28 UTC

New stylesheet. This goes in the output/ directory and should replace the one
that was included in output.tar.bz2

config.ini v3

Update the feeds to produce - we now just produce the HTML and a RSS 2.0 feed.
Others can be produced in future if we have reason to...

Comment 15 Lance Albertson (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-02-17 07:38:18 UTC
Devrel: do you have any problems with the proposed addition to the dev handbook for planet gentoo? If so let us know! (I can't remember if we got a go ahead from you on that part)
Comment 16 Tim Yamin (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-02-17 09:08:15 UTC
Handbook patch looks fine. Want me to commit it in?
Comment 17 Lance Albertson (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-02-17 09:09:49 UTC
Not until we get the site up and running and we've tested it a little. We'll probably want to send an email to -core when we're ready so that *all* devs know about the policy on it.
Comment 18 Donnie Berkholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-02-17 12:17:56 UTC
+If you have a blog elsewhere, then it needs to be able to provide an XML
+content feed. If you blog into categories, we need to be able to get an XML
+feed which covers your "Gentoo" category but no others. This is probably a
+non-issue, as almost all blogs provide standardised feeds like this.

This is the one that's going to cause problems with Robin, me and anyone else who uses LiveJournal (which is a lot of people). Thus the suggestion of somehow filtering by topic.
Comment 19 Jeffrey Forman (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-03-06 18:10:07 UTC
Something I was talking to lance earlier about was putting a footer at the bottom of the template.."The views expressed here are of the invidivual dev, and not Gentoo as a whole....blah blah"
Comment 20 Daniel Drake (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-03-07 00:57:52 UTC
Already had that planned, but forgot I had written the newer Planet template. It's now done on both sites.
