Hello folks ,
You might have noticed that Hoa mailing lists (ML) no longer work. Why? The mail server got some troubles and shuts down.
Before ML, you may remember the forum. Well, it was not suitable for everyone, hence the ML. But ML, despites the server issues, were not suitable for some people too.
Consequently we gently asked Discourse to help us by providing a free hosted instance on their server. And if you are reading this, this is because they are generous and they agreed to help us!
A common place for everything
Discourse will replace the mailing lists. All the internal or support related discussions will now happen here. To feel comfortable, you will find the same categories: internal and support.
A new category appears: announcements. Almost everyday, we have a daily meeting on IRC. During this meeting, we present and discuss what we have done the previous days (“achievements”) and what to do the next days (“goals”). A summary of these meetings is a good candidate for this new category.
About the Hoa Virtual Meetings, you will find the summary in the internal category (e.g. Hoa Virtual Meeting 2016-08).
What about comments?
We also have some troubles with the comments on the website. They land since several months now and we are using isso. This is a great tool but there is no administration pannel. It was fine with few comments but now it becomes impossible. We tried to implement a panel on our side but it was not very useful.
So we are going to remove isso and to use Discourse instead. We will embed it and it will create a new reply to an existing topic each time someone has a question. We don't know how to implement it yet but this is the idea. If you have some experiences with it, please, contact us!
You rock .
