Just added developments sites for more upcoming Westgate sites: bikeuic.org, autoshowshutdown.org, dingyourbell.org, and logansquarewalks.org
It was a full house tonight: Todd, Paul, Dan, Stoner, & Jordan. We also welcomed two new geeks to the regular fold. In addition, Chris Wallace from Blackstone Bikes came to see what the bikegeeks could do for Blackstone.
We discussed more than we worked as there was a lot to talk about after not having met for a few weeks.
Here is our discussions modified from the agenda for the meeting:
The Bike Winter site is now being hosted on the bikegeeks production server (formerly, it was hosted on a 3rd party server).
The plan was to leave the old site in its existing place until the site was ready to migrate into Westgate, but circumstances required bringing it over early. This site will be preserved as old.bikewinter.org after the Westgate migration.
At the meeting on 12/18:
o paul worked on the mailing list modules.
o jordan worked on moving the various mailing lists over from the halfd domain to whip
o stoner worked on the bikewinter dev content
o I (todd) worked on moving the CCM and BW sites over to whip
o dan worked on getting his email back on the bikegeeks email list
Next meeting on 1/8/07 (next two cancelled on account of XMas and New Year's Day)
I just finished promoting the new version of Westate/Drupal to production. Everything went fine, except that I had to run the .../westgateDev/scripts/fixSequences.sh script because I had brought over the bikegeeks database from development. After I ran the script, things worked fine.
The bikegeeks site has finally made it to production. This site was started along with the Westgate project itself, but never received any love until now.
Browse the site, and feel free to send us any feedback you might have.

We have migrated the westgate project to Drupal version 4.7.2 (we were on 4.6.6). The new 4.7 version provides several new features and enhancements, but the one we're most excited about is the streamlined content creation capabilities; creating static site content is now much easier.
The rollout went smoothly. Everthing has been made to work in our development environment first. After everything was checked into subversion, the deployment on the production site was just a few commands.
The production Westgate system has been successfully transitioned to its new server. This server, owned cooperatively by three bikegeeks, lives in a co-location facility in downtown Chicago.
The new server gives the bikegeeks full freedom to modify the production system as they see fit.
With the upgrade to the latest version of Drupal (to 4.6.6), we have recast the source control system directory structure and moved to subversion as well.
The new directory structure will greatly ease Drupal version upgrades and subversion works better for our needs. (Plus, this is a great opportunity to play with subversion!)
