Summary:Forge enter beta test phase
Project:Site Admin

The OCamlCore.org Team is proud to announce that this forge enter the beta test phase before being available for the whole OCaml community.

A forge is a set of services for software projects, including version control systems (CVS, SVN, ...), mailing lists, download areas, bug tracking systems, ... Well known examples are Sourceforge.net, GNA, and Savannah. The forge for the OCaml community will be specifically aimed at hosting software projects related to the OCaml programming language.

The new site is almost ready for the release. However, before open it to everybody, we would like to gather a group of people from the community to beta-test the site.

In particular, we are therefore looking for people which:
* have a small experience with other forge
* have an OCaml project to start (or to migrate from somewhere else)
* are willing to collaborate with us to find out problems in the forge

Of course, this being a test period, we are not yet willing to give guarantees of any kind, but we do have backups.

So if you want to participate to the beta test of forge.ocamlcore.org, sign-up for an account.

Then submit a project, stating into "Objectifs et description du projet" that "Project will belong to the beta test of forge.ocamlcore.org". This
is for records and help us to be sure that project submitter is aware of the "beta" status of the forge. For the moment we are *not* going to
accept projects which do not explicitly acknowledge the beta testing status of the forge.

The subdomain are not yet supposed to be working, but we are on it. Can you please submit a feature request about that in the site-admin tracker?

Regarding a $DVCS we are planning to give support for git, but beware that decent integration of foge with DVCS is unfortunately not available. So no source code browsing or similar stuff from inside the forge. I hope plugins will be comings RSN.

Great work! I'm starting by hosting some small projects that were living as .tar.gz's on my drive.

Two questions:

1) Are the subdomains (in my case mlwebmonitor.forge.ocamlcore.org) supposed to work?

2) Can we have Mercurial, pleeaase? Or at least a distributed VCS. :)
