Have you seen ISLE for Islandora 8 yet? It's Islandora on Docker and it's crazy fast. It's a much better overall experience for intstalling and maintaining Islandora. And best of all, ISLE has recently transitioned into a full community project! What started as a Islandora Collaboration Group and Born Digital project is now officially under the umbrella of the Islandora Foundation. To ensure it gets the open source love it needs to really take off, we're proposing something we've never done before: quarterly sprints.
The Islandora Documentation Interest Group is coming back!
It has been on hiatus for a few years now, but the DIG is being relaunched as a place where we can have discussions about the best approaches for building and maintaining Islandora documentation, identify and prioritize gaps and opportunities for improvement, and coordinate community work to write and edit our shared Islandora documentation.
The updated Terms of Service for this group are here: https://github.com/islandora-interest-groups/Islandora-Documentation-Interest-Group
Our first community poll on what features folks want was a huge success, with 76 people responding. Our second poll just wrapped up, and we managed to beat that number with a total of 80 responses. For having approximately 320 Islandora installations out there, 80 responses means we got input from roughly one quarter our users. Not too shabby!
