[Rdo-list] rdoproject.org plans

This has taken some doing, but I wanted to follow up on some earlier 
conversations about the rdoproject.org wiki and possible better tools.

Shortly after the OpenStack Summit, we'll be migrating the website over 
to us Middleman, rather than the current Vanilla + Mediawiki toolset. 
Existing wiki documents, and the blog content in Vanilla, will be 
migrated over to markdown files that will then be editable via Github. 
(Exact details to be determined.)

We're not the guinea pigs in this process - the ovirt.org site is 
undergoing a similar migration, so hopefully by the time they're done 
we'll know all the things that can go wrong and avoid then.

This solves two immediate problems.

One is that the Google-based auth on the website is broken, and at this 
time there's no working plugin that fixes the problem that we're having 

The other is simply bringing the site content management more into line 
with the tools that we're using for everything else, and putting it 
revision control along the way.

I will have more details, and dates, in a few weeks, but I wanted to let 
you know that I haven't dropped this - it's just taken a while to work 
out the process of importing and converting all of the content into the 
new format.

Thanks again for your patience.
