> Hi all,
> Hopefully you won’t notice any difference but we’ve just shipped a new
> version of http://lrug.org/.  The old site was a radiant[1] install and
> over the past few months we’ve been extracting the content and turning it
> into a static site using middleman[2].
> The main benefit of this is that the entire site is now text in a git
> repo[3] rather than strings hidden in a db on the host.  This should open
> up the possibility of more people working on the site and if nothing else I
> expect you all to submit pull-requests to fix all the typos I inadvertently
> ad when writig up the mettingz.
> If you’re super-keen to help out there are a bunch of issues[4] that could
> do with your attention.  If you have any other ideas for the site then open
> a PR or issue and we can start to talk about it.
> We’ve made some effort to make sure that we have redirects in place for
> old urls.  If you have any bookmarks, rss subscriptions, or other links
> that point to something on http://lrug.org/ please check them out and let
> us know if anything is broken (bonus points if you do so as a PR with a
> change to our redirects.json[5] file).
> Thanks to Tom Stuart, David Burrows, Greg Molnar, and Andrew McDonough for
> getting involved and helping push this out.
> Cheers,
> Murray
