ODMA.info Is Being Repaved.

Migration to a new server introduced a number of problems that need to be repaired.  Older pages also need to be modified and reorganized for consistency across the entire ODMA site.  While the site is being repaved to accomplish both kinds of improvements, you may notice discrepancies and problems with links to site content.

Check the Site Repaving Project pages for additional details on the known defects and the approach to correction and upgrade.  Contact the ODMA Technical Coordinator with questions and to report any defects that you notice.


2. Current Approach 

  1. The construction structure of the site is made current and properly connected.  This provides the artifacts used to manage additional review and repaving of content materials. 

    • The construction structure is reviewed starting with the "front porch:" the root materials at http://odma.info/.  Work items and their completion will be accounted for as part of the front-porch Construction Zone.

    • After the front porch is adjusted, the construction structure of each subfolder is reviewed, extending recursively through all of the construction-structure elements.    Additional items that happen to be noticed will be added to the work items of the applicable construction zone. 

    • The construction structure and the related construction zones can be located by navigating the construction structure provided at the front porch.

    • When the construction structure is reviewed and adjusted as necessary, a completion message will be inserted to avoid wondering which structures have and have not been reviewed.

  2. The ActiveODMA content is made consistent, reachable, and properly linked. 

    • The modifications to that compilation of material will begin with those important for the ODMJNI Public Beta.

    • The ActiveODMA section has a construction zone for management of its internal construction structure.  Items about ActiveODMA elements of the overall repaving will be found there.

  3. The downloads, faq, and support sections will be reviewed to ensure that their existing content is reachable and that case-sensitivity conflicts are reconciled.  As part of that survey, the content of these sections will also be surveyed for other changes that are needed as part of improving the site organization and the way material is versioned and accounted for.

  4. The preceding activities will be carried out in parallel so that the essential needs for the ODMJNI Public Beta are met as quickly as possible and broken links are repaired so that all ODMA Interoperability Exchange content is accessible.

  5. The downloads, faq, and support sections (will) each have a Catalog and a Job Jar for their content materials.  Survey of content in those sections will be reflected by items in the respective job jars.  This level will provide a checklist for the further adjustment and repaving of these sections undertaken after the adjustments for case sensitivity are completed.

  6. As appropriate, completion messages will be inserted to avoid wondering which sections have and have not been reviewed and repaved.

  7. On completion of these adjustments, other sections will be reviewed and repaved.  The sections that were already surveyed for broken links will also be revisited to complete additional repaving as part of normalization of the site's organization.
