Description

We try to have two maintainers for every service:
https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/org/operations/Infrastructure

I think only hiro knows how to log in to the blog and fix stuff? Or worse, there is no such thing as logging into the blog (i.e. there is only the web interface), and fixing things requires filing tickets with the current hosting provider? And in that case the right answer is to document how to file those tickets, who our contacts are, etc, so somebody else can do this process if needed?

Is Mike this person?

I will try emailing the hosting people, I think I have access to the hosting page. Mike could help too, I think.

Hi,

I will get in touch with them now. Sorry for being late about this.

Following up with pantheon and the cron issue they mention. More updates soon.

The issue was solved on pantheon side. It was some chron process hanging in there. I am ok on having a second blog maintainer. Although in this case pantheon people can do most of the things as we can't even access the machine where the blog lives.

Another discussion would be if we actually like this setup in which we have a bit less control on the infrastructure we use, but also a server less to maintain. There are pro and cons.

Drupal is not the greatest pleasure, but if help is wanted (?), why not.

https://gitweb.torproject.org/tor-blog.git seems ripe for the attic. How to reproduce the nodejs "out of memory error"?

cc'ing Anarcat so he can know about this ticket (and its goal) too.

couldn't we host the blog within the new static website? a lot of those shiny static site generators (SSG) are built for blogs. there's always the problem with comments, but that's usually solved with externalizing those to another entity, like a forum (e.g. discourse) or disqus or whatever... do we have such a place now?

in any case, I should mention i don't have contacts or access to the Pantheon folks although I have met them in the past and might be able to uncrunch things in a pinch. it would be great to document that process in any case.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
