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

High Maintenance Mom

It's a site for mom's to share information so we can all have more time for pedicures. I'm still on the steep part of the Scoop learning curve. All comments, suggestions, help, etc. are appreciated.

Booman Tribune is launced Announcements

Posted on Sun Mar 13, 2005 at 12:00:00 PM PST
This is cross-posted from dKos, with all due apologies to those of you who consider to be the best Scoop site in existence.

Booman Tribune is open for blogging.

Imagine if Daily Kos was devoid of users.  No comments, no diaries, no trolls, and no Cheers and Jeers.

That pretty well describes the current situation over at BooTrib where all the architecture is in place and no one has had a chance to deflower her.

If you are tired of going through life with a 5-digit user ID, now is your chance to remedy the situation.

If you are frustrated that your diary scrolled off the screen in an can be sure that won't happen at Booman Tribune.

more below the fold...
