March progess

Well with Easter less than three weeks away, will we have our “read-only” site up as hoped?  I just know I shall regret saying this, but it’s looking good. We certainly shan’t have copied all the content from our old repository to the new by then, but I think there should be a working site with a non-trivial number and range of digital objects.

Our target was to have a working “read-only” site by the end of March.  Currently our development server is running a version that copes with four different content types with a number more under active development.  At the end of March we had this running and we are now iterating through a large number of design tweaks and bug fixes. In fact, working closely with MediaShelf LLC, who wrote much of the Hydrangea code, we have contributed to one or two significant improvements in the code base.

We are just now starting to flesh out the detailed planning for the next phase of work which involves the interface supporting edit and ingest.
