New OpenLMI Website

We’ve been working on a new OpenLMI website for the last couple of months, and it is now live at www.openlmi.org. This is our new community site and is intended to be more friendly than the old site. Please take a look at it and let us know what you think!

Our goals were to provide more information, to make it accessible through improved navigation menus, and to divide the information up functionally with separate tabs for Using OpenLMI, system architecture and infrastructure, available agents, and developing new agents.

To get an idea of where we are going, take a look at the storage agent at http://www.openlmi.org/agent_storage. This shows the kind of information we want to present for each of the agents. In fact, there is more – we are working on some dynamite user documentation that will show up in the next week or so.

This is a living site. It is built on a CMS so that it can easily be updated and extended. You may find a placeholder page or two; we are actively working on new content. And we would like to engage in discussions with you.

Whether you are interested in learning more about OpenLMI, obtaining and installing it, or becoming actively involved with OpenLMI development, the new OpenLMI website is the place to go.

(I should mention that the old site hasn’t gone away. It is still available at https://fedorahosted.org/openlmi/. This is the hardcore developer site which contains our ticketing system for bugfixes and enhancements. We will continue to use the old site for these purposes.)

    FYI; on the “Get OpenLMI” tab, the “OpenLMI Developers” link points to: http://drupal-openlmi.rhcloud.com/development . Presumably that want’s to be: http://www.openlmi.org/development

    Chris, thanks for your feedback. We’ve been working on straightening out dns issues with openlmi.org and the new OpenLMI web site; short version, the new website is running on OpenShift and dns settings are a bit different.
    We’ve been updating the content – http://www.openlmi.org/development now includes pointers to the git repositories for all the agents. Hmm, looks like we do need to add an explicit link to the old TRAC site on that page.
