That’s indeed how it works for Webarchitects gitlab server (git.coop): you need to be member of Webarchitects to have your domain whitelisted and be able to register an account. That’s their policy. BUT, I think @Chris has also whitelisted the meet.coop domain, so if we register a @meet.coop email address for the Product/Services Circle, they should be able to 1) register a git.coop account and 2) could send/receive email at a @meet.coop mail address. This should be handled with care, but also should the inclusion of people in the circle be handled with a similar care, right?
Another discussion is whether git-Jekyll is the ideal methodology for publishing a multilingual website. Recall that @chris has offered in several occasions, and even last week’s Thursday at the end of All Hands, that he’d be happy to quickly deploy a WordPress instance. We need to go multilingual without doubt (or is there?) and also for other reasons WP can be more practical:
- rich text editing
- (complex) forms work well in WP (with the Caldera Forms engine)
- multilanguage and translations
- event calendars
- possible integrations with BBB
Well, I’m happy to see what you have in mind for the website structure.
