(I know this is late, but...)
I am willing to contribute a "server" of sorts, running N (where N
probably needs to be < 6) instances of Plone 2.0.5, Zope 2.7.3, Python
2.3.4 on SuSE Linux 9.1 (my box is 768M, 600mhz P3). I will also
provide "sudo zope" access and "student" accounts for N users.
If you have some help or know what you are doing on Linux, Plone
installs are no more trouble; in fact, you will be able to create
"optimized" Zope, Python and Plone installs, over what you would get
on Windows or pre-packaged Linux RPM stuff.
If anyone thinks this would be of help, /especially/ Chris our
organizer, let me know. I would also be willing to setup "larger N
instances" on a heftier Linux (SuSE 9.1 or Debian sarge or newer
Fedora maybe) server in the boot-camp area, if I can have "sudo"/ssh
(ok, root) remote access. Please contact me off-list, if this would
be of interest.
Thanks, your Zope/Linux guy,
I will be running Plone (as above) on my Dell 400 mhz P2 / 256M Debian
Linux notebook - decent, and probably a minimal Plone config.
(incl X11, Windowmaker, Firefox, GNU Emacs)
