Website Structure

The structure of the PSAS site is something like:

Main (index: main navigation, announcements)

This site is running Ikiwiki 3.20120629.

Photo Gallery

There's a photo and movie gallery, currently implemented using Apache::Gallery, at http://photos.psas.pdx.edu/.

Authenticating Group Members

User's can set up their own accounts, given a little information. Authentication requires:

Mailman Superlist psas-all

The [psas-all](<http://lists.psas.pdx.edu/mailman/listinfo/psas-all) list is automatically generated as the union of all the addresses on all the other lists that start with the string "psas-", except the [psas-announce](<http://lists.psas.pdx.edu/mailman/listinfo/psas-announce) list. This is accomplished with a cron job that runs every hour, located in /etc/cron.d/local:

    23 * * * * list /usr/local/sbin/gen-psas-all

The /usr/local/sbin/gen-psas-all script is:

    #!/bin/bash
    exec /usr/local/sbin/gen-combined-list \
        --match="^psas" --except="^psas-announce$" psas-all

the /usr/local/sbin/gen-combined-list is a bit large, and is attached below.

Setting up another similar superlist would just require a crontab entry and a helper shell script.

Git setup

Most of the information on setting up git, and setting up people for git, is found on the git page.
