This discuss.ocaml.org site was created on the 11th May 2017, and is an experiment in moving various OCaml community discussion forums under one, more modern, umbrella. This topic lays out a timeline for evaluating whether it is a good solution, and to record its current status.
- 11th May 2017: site setup, and discussion about which categories to use opened. Signups open to the public.
- 13th May 2017: site features enabled: mailing list mode, GitHub and Google authentication for user signup, and tags for posts. SSL has been activated.
15th May 2017: HSTS has been activated so all access to the site is now via
https://only. oAuth for GitHub/Google have been updated.
- 16th May 2017: tag trust level for creation dropped to 1 from 3, and Lwt category created.
- 19th May 2017: added OCaml, Coq and Haskell syntax highlighting support.
until May 2017: find volunteers to start to move content over and assume admin responsibility for categories relevant to them.
end of May 2017: point ocaml.org community to discuss.ocaml.org, but emphasise it is in beta and point to this topic.
June 2017: site becomes a paid site, but remains in beta.
July 2017: if successful, redirect pointers from ocaml.org to point over here.
by end of 2017: decide what to do with lists.ocaml.org, and the Yahoo beginners list.
