I'm new to the list, I learned about OpenGuides
via the perl.com
article published recently.
So I guess that's my research task: Looking into
whether there is an
approval mechanism already implemented in OG.
No, there isn't. Some people have talked about it, but none of them
have written any actual code. It's not something I'm personally all
that excited by, so I'll be unlikely to do it while there are so many
other things that need doing. I'd be happy to answer any questions
from someone who wanted to write it. The feature would of course need
to be optional.
I've also noticed that the OG sites listed as
remarkably similar, so I'm hoping to find out how much the template
system can be modified.
Some people have custom templates. I'm not too happy about this since
the templates do have functionality in them and can have bugs. I can
fix a bug in a template but I can't force people to install it over
their custom one.
I would like to move towards this:
I've already noticed that OG requires PostgreSQL,
whereas I've used
MySQL in my work so far.
Nonononono. Where did you read that? OpenGuides can run on Postgres,
MySQL and SQLite.
