ChiliProject is not maintained anymore.
Please be advised that there will be no more updates.
We do not recommend that you setup new ChiliProject instances and
we urge all existing users to migrate their data to a maintained
system, e.g. Redmine. We will
provide a migration script later. In the meantime, you can use the
ChiliProject Blog (Task #36)
Setup a blog, either using Eric's custom stuff, or just a plain wordpress or something.
Task #7: Public web site
Task #65: Setup the ChiliProject Twitter account
I'd vote for Wordpress since I'm moving all my blog to it anyways. There isn't any other blogging software that is even close to as good as Wordpress.

Do you know if wordpress has pluggable authentication? I have convinced some other things to work with redmine users and "groups" and might try it for wordpress too if we want to keep wordpress for some longer time.

I think so but it's not easy. Why would we need pluggable authentication?
Both support ldap and openid if that helps....

You'd need to register only once for the project, not once for the blog, once for the bluemine, once for the mailing list, once for the …
I'm probably going to use disqus.com for the comments and they allow a bunch of remote logins like OpenID. Authors would need an account but there won't be that many of them (as opposed to the number of community members).

I believe the platform of choice still is wordpress, or are their voices against that? I'd suggest going with a wordpress.com hosted one for now, that would take the hassle of setting it up/hosting it from us, and we could still migrate on a hosted one later on if need be.
What about using the Redmine Blog Plugin ? Unfortunately I do not have any experience with it. So I can't tell whether it is stable enough and whether it fulfills our requirements.
I'd rather go with a "full" blogging software, that seems to have little more than the very basics.
I have a dedicated VPS for Wordpress that supports multiple blogs. I already started porting the Redmine Blog over to it and it's working really good. I'm happy to host the blog there if we'd like.
The Redmine Blog Plugin was pretty limited last I looked. Good enough for internal projects but not as a public "voice". I think it is also limited by Redmine's wiki syntax too (e.g. can't easily post videos).

Would work for me too if you feel comfortable taking care of it.

Thanks Holger, the DNS is working. Now I need to setup a theme and get things ported over from the RedmineBlog I'm running.
I've setup the Canvas theme and some common elements. What does everyone think?
(The content in the footer: "Updates" and "Twitter" are pulled from my own accounts for now. Once we are public I'll switch them over)
- Status set to In Progress
I've setup Disqus (using admin account with my personal account added as a moderator), added the main Twitter account to the footer, added a Write page, deleted all of the test posts, added a simple welcome page, setup Feedburner for RSS, and hooked up Google Analytics.
The blog is ready to go now. Once we finalize the Press Release I'll add that as a post on there too.
- Status changed from In Progress to Closed
