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

Alive? New Code
By bcarney , Section Project []
Posted on Tue Jul 15, 2014 at 04:33:07 PM PST
Is this project still alive? I have a customer that wants it installed on my server, but after surfing around the site it almost appears the project is abandoned. Is there a walk-thru guide available for installing on Ubuntu? I take it from what what I've read here Scoop basically doesn't work in I correct in that?

Scoop Bugtracking Announcements
By Mostly Harmless , Section Project []
Posted on Sun Jan 25, 2004 at 12:00:00 PM PST
(I sent this e-mail to scoop-dev, but it seems to have gotten lost in the bowels of SourceForge's list server. I'm submitting it here because it is likely to get posted before my e-mail wends it's way thorough SF's delivery system)

As I mentioned last week, I've been setting up bugzilla on my server. It's now up and running at 'beta' quality, and configured for supporting scoop. Please have a look at it, give it thumbs up, thumbs down, or what not. Feel free to file silly bugs, if you want to get the feel for the system. janra has even filed a few semi-serious ones already.

the new Scoop Admin Guide Docs
By janra , Section Project []
Posted on Wed Jan 21, 2004 at 12:00:00 PM PST
All of the administrative and feature setup sections are complete. The only section that is still incomplete is the "Extending Scoop" (aka "hacking") section. There's even a FAQ, and despite the fact that I'm calling it "done" with the rest of the guide, it can always use more questions that are likely to be asked. The Admin Guide is in the top menu over there ---->
