Software Freedom Day Registration is open

After some weeks of preparation the SFD worldwide has opened up the registration!

I had taken up the task to prepare the new wiki. The old wiki was quite outdated but we could not update it easily. We chose to through away the user database, because there had been a lot of spam user accounts and it was qute impossible to scan them all for good and bad.

I hope our server will survive to be slashdotted (fingers crossed).

Yes, we still use MoinMoin as the wiki engine. Its actively developed, has caching capabilities and anĀ  advanced search engine. And also the ability to use templates for page creation makes it mor easy for the general user, to add content.

We also have a Drupal CMS as the new front page and so we seperate the stable content from the more chaotic wiki content.

Its an interesting experience to see all those teams around the world running over our infrastructure. And I am impressed about their (your) enthusiasm.

Ah btw. the SFD is on September 18th in 2010!
