RE: Where'd the FAQ webpage go?

Alex and I spoke last night, and think that since most people are rightly
focused on getting the demo completed we'd make some decisions and wait for
people to object/point out superior options.

We appear to have several good options for servers, and I certainly don't
want to offend anyone, so if you think we're not doing the right thing,
please speak up before we start actually doing it. Alex' preference (which
I'm fine with) is to use www.pair.com, since they're offering us a
professionally hosted server for free, and he's had good experiences with
them in the past.

So unless someone has any suggestions, we plan to do the following:

First, invisible tech stuff (Alex and I will do this):
- Move Drupal to the pair server. It will be used to serve the bulk of our
site.
- Move the FAQ system to the pair (www.pair.com) server.
- Move the Wiki to openvoting.org. It will be an internal tool.
- Copy the openvoting.org static content to the pair server (either as items
in Drupal or as stand-alone static pages, depending).

Then visible stuff (everyone can help with this):
- Review/update the content (FAQ, Drupal, Static)
- Review/update the site design (look & feel, logo, etc.); I assume that
Chris Gates will lead this...
- Cross-link everything with common navigation bar, etc. (i.e. implement the
design into the FAQ, Drupal, etc.)
- Train everyone who generates content in the use of Drupal, etc.

And the moment of truth:
- Final review of site content, design.
- Change www.openvoting.org to point to new server.

This all ought to be doable in two weeks, so I'd propose (pulling a date out
of thin air) targeting February 1st for cutover. Does everyone think that
this is a reasonable timeline? In particular, this is dependent on Chris and
whoever cares most about site design to be able to spend some time on this.

Thoughts?
