+++ THE AGNULA PROJECT CALLS FOR HELP: WEBMASTER(S) NEEDED

The AGNULA project is in dire need of a fresh and motivated webmaster
- better yet, a team of webmasters able to work cooperatively and
replace each other in times of need. If you are not a developer or a
packager, this is your chance to contribute to our common goal -
spreading Libre Software in the professional audio field.

The AGNULA project is in dire need of a fresh and motivated webmaster
- better yet, a team of webmasters able to work cooperatively and
replace each other in times of need. If you are not a developer or a
packager, this is your chance to contribute to our common goal -
spreading Libre Software in the professional audio field.

As our long-time users know, the AGNULA web site (specifically,
http://www.agnula.org/) has for a long time in need of a reshaping
effort. Many informations contained therein are obsoleted, since
AGNULA is not an EC funded project anymore, and the partners which are
actively working on the various AGNULA sub-projects are not
necessarily the same as 2002, when all of this began.

We need a webmaster, and we need it now! :)

Applicants should:

- be well aware that this is a volunteer position. We are not able to
pay anyone for working on our website right now; [0]

- know Plone reasonably well. We are not particularly tied to using
Plone as our platform for http://www.agnula.org/, but our webmaster
should at least be able to export all the necessary data and in
general analyze the current situation through Plone and Zope
management interfaces;

- know the relevant W3C standards that apply to the work at
hand. Right know HTML 4.x and CSS 1.x / 2.x will do the job just
fine;

- be moderately fluent in english. Contents for the website shouldn't
be directly provided by the webmaster, but a basic ability to
understand "what goes where" is a plus. :)

- have a positive, proactive attitude towards the job. Inside the
AGNULA project we give the greatest freedom possible to each
volunteer's creativity and imagination, bearing in mind some basic
prerequisites (i.e. no proprietary technology or protocol used in
our day-to-day work and in what we produce);

If you think you are the right person for the job, don't hesitate
writing us at:

users@lists.agnula.org

So that all our community can discuss about your ideas and how you
want to proceed.

Don't hesitate to write us even though somebody else already did: our
goal is to create a medium-sized pool of volunteers able to handle all
web-related tasks inside AGNULA. We perfectly understands that more
often than not "real life" takes precedence over what we would like to
do, but we'd like nonetheless to provide the AGNULA project with a
continuos support as far as the website and related tasks go.

Thank you for your time reading this, and thank you in advance for all
the help you will be able to give.

About AGNULA: Agnula (acronym for A GNU/Linux Audio distribution,
pronounced with a strong g) is the name of a project funded until
April 2004 by the European Commission (number of contract:
IST-2001-34879; key action IV.3.3, Free Software: towards the critical
mass). After the end of the funded period, AGNULA is continuing as a
volunteer based project, aiming to spread Libre Software in the
professional audio/video arena.

Best regards,

[0] As you might know, we are working on finding new sources of
funding for the AGNULA project. Once we have a formal structure in
place which can decide on the allocation of money, and once we have
the money :), we could possibly be in a position to pay a webmaster.
Of course, we can't do any promise at the moment.
