Some of us have been having backchannel discussions of the idea of
moving oVirt services to OpenShift, specifically:
* WordPress (www.ovirt.org)
* MediaWiki (wiki.ovirt.org
I have never used OpenShift so I have no idea how
well these will run.
In the future I'd want to add Jenkins and mailman to that list,
when/if they become possible/available.
The main idea is to off-load the infrastructure work - maintaining the
server, network, OS, dependencies, etc. We'd have an easy way to share
responsibilities to the services using git - OpenShift projects are
maintained in git repositories, and when you commit a change, it
updates the live website. We'd then be able to take in fixes as pull
requests, or give direct key'd access to some people to work on parts
of the infrastructure.
I manage many of my internal system using git. It works
well as long as
you aren't updating the system from other sources at the same time.
What are some other reasons this is a good idea?
The git part is very powerful. It
makes management task much easier.
What are some considerations that might make this a bad idea?
One possible issue is
cost. The other question is what limits are there
to using the wordpress or mediawiki this way. Since I have never used
the platform not sure what these limits are.
We can discuss in tomorrow's meeting, but should make the decision on
this mailing list.
