Re: Setting up drupal for GUADEC

Thanks a lot Owen,

Shell account tested, ok. As you mention, stro will be the one dealing
with the GUADEC site from the shell. But yes, having a shell account
myself will help (hopefully) the Drupal adoption process.

... and both URLs point to your dummy index.php

How can we view the drupal located at /usr/local/www/drupal ?

Sorry, I will need some time to familiarise with the servers
nomenclature, organisation and policies. Starting to read ....

I also think we need to define this better.

Yes, true. I have suggested stro to rename the current /pushbutton theme
directory for /guadec and restore the default /pushbutton to keeo the
loyality with the upstream code.

In the previous Drupal projects I have been involved the policy has been
to leave the original code as it iss, adding new features or solved bugs
as proper patches committed to upstream.

Agreed. It was just done wth the best intention to see if the test theme
coming from worked fine, and we left the proper
solution for later. Won't happen again now that we are inside GNOME.
