We maintain the software out of historical interest and for educational use.
To meet today's security requirements, the code would need a complete security audit.
- Find a secure, simple and collaborative Web solution for small non profit groups
and write a good setup and operations how-to document for it.
New vulnerabilities are constantly found in the major CMSes. So a CMS needs
constant maintenance (monitoring, applying patches, etc).
Small non profit groups do not have the time, expertise or money to securely
maintain a CMS.
This makes their internet presence vulnerable to attacks, ranging
form "defacement" to adding embarrassing, compromising, or even
illegal content to their web site.
We think these users need a secure, simple and collaborative Web solution.
Our goal is to find a sensible combination of standard free software components
that would fulfill these requirements.
We think that a solution could be a light-weight online CMS that is only accessible
for authenticated users. This CMS would produce static HTML pages that then are
uploaded to a public web presence on a different host. Any standard web hosting
package would be usable here.
