Re: Beyond the wiki page: planning an International Community Portal


I think for a long term period we could investigate Drupal as an
option. Drupal is a widely used portal platform and we can find a lot
of Drupal experience in OpenStack community. It have good practices of
maintenance and development, so we don't need to reinvent the wheel

Anyway I don't think that Drupal is the ultimate solution for every IT
problem. I suggest to write a bit more detailed requirement
specification, and check the pros and cons of possible solutions.

> I think you've nailed the requirements Stef. This could not be done with MeetUp because it has no hierarchical organisational facility. There doesn't appear to be any way to bring together the MeetUp groups into any form of structure where some of this could be achieved, the best I can see is you get http://openstack.meetup.com, which includes any group with a mention of OpenStack.

(MeetUp doesn't work well for sparse populations that want to create a country wide group (like in Australia) until critical mass can justify MeetUp groups bound to cities/towns (which MeetUp.com insists on presently)
