What is Scoop
Scoop is a "collaborative media application". It falls somewhere between a content management system, a web bulletin board system, and a weblog. Scoop is designed to enable your website to become a community. It empowers your visitors to be the producers of the site, contributing news and discussion, and making sure that the signal remains high. More >>

Where can I get Scoop
You can download the latest release tarball: scoop_1.1.8.tar.gz

You can grab the nightly build. Note: This is generated automatically from the current CVS, and may not be reliable! Get that here: scoop-1.1-nightly.tar.gz

The developers strongly recommend CVS as the primary way to obtain Scoop, since releases tend to have pretty long delays between them. If you have CVS installed, do the following:

cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@ login

cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@ co scoop

The above is two commands; each one must be on a single line. When prompted for a password for anonymous, enter 'anonymous' (without the quotes). For more CVS info, "Open Source Development with CVS" is an excellent online reference.

Where can I get help
There are several sources of information and support for Scoop. The first place to look is the scoop-help mailing list. You can browse the archives, or join the list. If you want to post a question, joining the list is strongly recommended. You can also join the #scoop IRC channel on SlashNET.

For documentation, there is the (largely complete) Scoop administrator's guide. You can also read the current README and INSTALL files, from Scoop WebCVS (username and password are both "anonymous"). The admin guide is also included with Scoop, in the doc/ directory.

If you have new feature ideas or requests, or descriptions of something you're working on for Scoop, this site is the place to submit them. You can also search this site for information. If you want to get your hands dirty, or have any questions about developing for Scoop, there is also the Scoop-dev list. You can browse the archives, or join the list.

Bug reports and patches should be filed on the Scoop Bug Muncher.

If you have any problems with this site or your user account, e-mail the Admin

The list archives for scoop-help, scoop-dev, and scoop-checkins have been restored back to the beginnings of the respective lists. (In the case of scoop-help, this is April, 2000.)

Apologies to anybody attempting to search the list archives for help with Scoop in the months they were not available.

Scoop 1.1 Release Candidate 2c Out Announcements
By Captain_Tenille , Section News []
Posted on Sun Jan 15, 2006 at 12:00:00 PM PST
It's true: the second release candidate for Scoop 1.1 is now available. This should be the last RC before Scoop 1.1 is released. If you are interested, please download it and test it out to help us find any bugs that might still be lurking in it.

There will be a three week waiting period between this RC and the final release. Barring any major issues, Scoop 1.1 should be released then.

Thanks for your patience. Who knows, maybe Scoop 1.2 will be released sometime this year as well?

Update [2006-1-15 15:55:11 by Captain_Tenille]: Oops, forgot to update the scoop.sql file before tagging RC2. Thus, the link is now to RC2abc. Sorry about that. If you downloaded the old RC 2, make sure that you add patch-30-TagEnhancements (and patch-31-TagPermUpdate). Thanks.

Update [2006-1-15 16:9:49 by Captain_Tenille]: Gah, the patch table was out of sync with the patches. That's now updated, so upgrading the DB won't cause tons of errors. Went and fixed a couple of little things for RC2c while I was at it.

Scoop on Mac OS X.4 (Tiger) Docs
By janra , Section Code []
Posted on Sat Dec 17, 2005 at 12:00:00 PM PST
I spent the last few days picking away at installing Scoop on my iBook, and making notes about the process, since the last OS X notes were for Panther.

The good news is, it's gotten easier to install Scoop on OS X!

Remember, the notes below are not a complete install guide, they only describe what is different from a standard install. You should still read the complete install guide. (These notes will be making it into the system-specific notes in that document on its next update.)

Talk To Action Announcements
By Bruce Wilson , Section New Scoop Sites []
Posted on Tue Dec 06, 2005 at 12:00:00 PM PST
The birth of Talk To Action: I was helping to set up ePluribus Media (another scoop site), but sometimes people who start things aren't always best suited to run them or bring them to full fruition. Not in that case anyway. So I left, but I'd met Frederick Clarkson in the project, and Fred was going down to NYC to the CUNY Open Center for the world's first conference, a two day event, focusing solely on the "real agenda" of Dominionism and the Christian Right movement. "Fred," I ventured, "you know most of the hardest core of the hardcore researchers into the religious right, and the writers, on so on. You'll be there anyway. Ask them to all post in one place on the net. I'll deal with the software...oh, sure".......

We have converted our site, over to scoop from geeklog. It was surprisingly easy to convert over and was able to copy the stories over with no problems. There were only four issues that came up during the installation of scoop and all are relatively minor.
