The aim of the PicoForge project (previously known as PicoLibre) is to provide a set of high level libre software applications that are well integrated in order to provide a collaborative "forge". It makes it easy to deploy a collaborative work platform for developing software or hosting other collaborative activities. Having started (as PicoLibre) in an educational context, PicoForge is now a quite generic platform, comparable (but sometimes less advanced) to other *-Forge software platforms. It groups several high-level applications like phpGroupware, Sympa, TWiki, Subversion, and CVS.
Picolibre renamed as PicoForge, and new features
The PicoLibre project has been renamed to PicoForge, to reflect the fact that it's a forge.
Several new improvements have been made, for an easier deployment due to the fact that PicoForge now comes pre-packaged for Debian, which eases a great deal the installation process (still complex for non-admin skills ;).
Also, PicoForge now integrates a SubVersion repository (in addition of CVS) for every project, and possibility to use many TWiki wikis for each project hosted.
Testers much welcome :)
After a long time, Picolibre development has progressed a little bit
After quite a long time without improvements, Picolibre is back on rails, and several improvements are in the pipe.
Next updates should bring new features, as the recent release was mainly about maintainability only.
Stay tuned for more announcements in the weeks to come.
